Spiritual Ingredients


In my talks with God this week, we reviewed spiritual ingredients. Like any product on the grocery shelf, we have many spiritual ingredients. If we took the time to write them all down, our “label” would look pretty good.

God wanted me to take a look at my list and determine how many of the ingredients were actually being used….ah, now I am defined in a different way! We can go to work on those ingredients that are not being used and talk with God about their purpose and how they fit in with His Plan for  our total spiritual being.

One additional part of the conversation was to think about the multiplying effect this could have if we then combined our total spiritual being with the complete spiritual being of other people for God’s specific purpose. Who knows who much could be accomplished and what great plans God may have for us to work communally for him.

My prayer is for us to talk with God about our spiritual ingredients and making sure all of them are properly being used. Then, I pray for us to ask God about working with other people who have gone through the same process in order to accomplish His work. I ask that we also lift one another up in prayer so we may continue to learn about being a more effective gentle witness and for all of us to draw closer to God.

  1. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. Galatians 5

  2. This is really good and if we could use all our ingredients, and work with others, this would be amazing. The things that would happen with Him. God Bless you Rick 🙂

    Great stuff, Rick. We all must make sure we are using our “spiritual ingredients” to the utmost for the kingdom. And yes, “we must also lift one another up in prayer so we may continue to learn about being a more effective gentle witness and for all of us to draw closer to God.” Wonderful post. God bless!

  5. Spirituality is such a health-inspiring ingredient. Lovely post!
