HEALTHY EATING PART 12 (HOW TO MANAGE FOOD INTOLERANCE)

OUR SPIRITUAL FOOD
“ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU ARE SPECIAL”.
Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man,
seeking goodly pearls: Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it (Matthew 13:45-46).

There are people who like to tell us that we’re not very special. People make such statements out of ignorance, and
a seeming show of humility.

You are peculiar. You are special to God. You’re His pearl of
inestimable value. It’s not pride to acknowledge and affirm that you are special.
Remember, God gave birth to you. James 1:18 says, “Of his
own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.”

It’s absolutely
impossible for God to give birth to “nonentities” or “unworthy servants” that some Christians
unwittingly arrogate to themselves, because He reproduces after His own kind.

You are the crown of God’s creation, the best of all that He
made. Therefore, Be conscious and be bold of your real personality; you are royalty, a peculiar treasure, a king priest
unto God, appointed to reign and rule in the earth.
