I had heard good things about a new restaurant in our area and decided to try it out for breakfast. I ordered an omelet with mushrooms and peppers with cheese. What I was expecting and what I got were two different things. When I eat, I eat a lot because I don’t fill up on carbs. The omelet I got looked like they ran out of ingredients and gave me the leftovers at the bottom of the container. There may have been one small mushroom cut up and half a slice of red bell pepper. Six bites later, it was gone. I ate again an hour later. On top of that, the prices didn’t reflect them skimping on product. Needless to say, I won’t be eating there again. Whoever told me it was good must eat like a bird.
There is a substandard product out there that is served daily that lacks nutritional value. Its message is repeated incessantly and is geared to control your mind, and if you’re not careful, it will! Pray that the Holy Spirit will open your eyes and give you the courage to turn it off and direct you to the truth. Fill up on the whole of God’s Word, and you will find that your anxiety and fear will subside. Trust him and do not fear what man can do; we are to please God, not man.
And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; Colossians 1:9-10
