A Diet That Works – part 8
Be sure to keep a check on your attitude! There’s a difference in working out Spiritually [or physically] because you have to, and because you want to.
#1 Solitude – Spend time alone to be with God.
#2 Silence – Remove noisy distractions to hear from God.
#3 Fasting – Skip a meal(s) to find greater nourishment form God.
#4 Live with Less – Learn to live with less money and still meet your basic needs.
#5 Secrecy - Avoid self-promotion, practice serving God without others knowing.
#6 Sacrifice – Giving of our resources beyond what seems reasonable to remind us of our dependence on Christ.
#7 Study - Spend time reading the Scriptures and meditating on its meaning and importance to our lives.
#8 Worship – Offer praise and adoration to God.
His praise should continually be on our lips and in our thoughts. Read Psalms, hymns, or spiritual songs, or sing to the Lord daily using a praise tape. Keep praise ever before you as you think of God’s mighty deeds in your life. What’s your favorite song? Does it lift you up or let you down? Maybe it’s time to change your song!
“I will bless the Lord at all times. His praise shall continually be in my mouth.”
The Point Is: Worship is more than just singing, it’s a lifestyle.
Prayer: “As I look around and see the changing seasons, may I embrace an attitude of gratitude in every area of my life ~ You are worthy to be praised!”
