1 Timothy 4:4-5 (NET) For every creation of God is good and no food is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving. For it is sanctified by God’s word and by prayer.

Growing up, we used to drink soya milk and eat other meals made with soy. As we grew older, we were told that soya wasn't good because it caused infertility issues. I remember we no longer consumed it for some time until much later when some medical experts said soya oil is one of the best oils to consume. Today, I have read several articles that insist that soya oil is one of the least favorable oils to consume because it messes with certain body hormones. Butter that was once said to be unhealthy is now highly recommended as one of the best oils for daily consumption.

Today, there may be many things we consume that may not be good for our bodies, but we do not know. Some may even be consumed because we were told that they are good while they are really not good for the body.

For the believer in Christ, we are not under any laws regarding the food we eat. As long as we receive our food with thanksgiving, it would be sanctified and made good for us. It is very important for the believer today to understand and believe this truth so that he would have the required faith to connect with this reality.

Many diseases are caused by the wrong diet. Many times, people don't even know what in their diet is culpable. But for the believer who serves the Lord(as we all should), the Lord promises to bless our food and our water and take sickness and disease from us (see Exodus 23:25).

It is an error to make a doctrine out of matters of diet, but it is very easy to fall into this trap and spend more time talking about diet than talking about Jesus. Let's be careful that we don't expose ourselves to elemental spirits but live in the liberty that Christ has purchased for us.
To the best of your knowledge, eat as healthy as possible, but be careful not to let your trust in Christ's grace for divine health be replaced with trust in a diet plan. It has been proven time and time again that there is more to life than food...(see Matthew 12:23).

Go into today remembering to receive every food set before you with thanksgiving so that it would be sanctified and made good for you.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for the food that You provide. I ask that you give me a thankful heart always, In Jesus' name. Amen.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
