Coke Is The Real Thing!        

Then What Is Pepsi?        

         

Not so many years ago I was addicted to Diet Pepsi. I'd get to work, put all my stuff down and head straight to the Pepsi machine to get my first one for the day. By the time the day was over, I easily had consumed about eight of them. For me, it was the real thing that coke and pepsi gave me that rush I needed.

 

In our iconic society Coke and Pepsi has stood the test of time. Each of them in their image mutations have carved out a niche. Coke has solidified itself as the "real thing" while Pepsi is viewed as a product for "a new generation." Anyone who drinks either one has an undying loyalty to that respective beverage. I was no exception. I still don't like Coke even though I stopped drinking Diet Pepsi years ago because it was literally causing me excruciating abdominal pain. Wow, something I loved that was detrimental to my existence.

 

Addictions of any kind are not healthy for us. All too often rather than walk away from the habits that threaten our very existence we justify them. Recently, one of my sisters had a heart attack. When I chatted with her about what could have caused it, she pointedly stated a series of things that could have contributed to it. I adamantly stated to her, "You have to stop smoking!"

 

Wow! What a concept that smoking could be a major culprit to her having a heart attack. Naturally it took me back to when I was abusing Diet Pepsi. One day while working on the weekend I became, so I thought, deathly ill. I could barely drive myself home because I was in so much pain. I made the decision that day not to ever eat Taco Bell again. It had to be the culprit.

 

Come Monday morning, I waltzed back into work, put my things down and headed straight for the Pepsi machine to get my daily dose. No sooner had I taken the first gulp the pain came back. Well, that was it for me. I wasn't going to drink Diet Pepsi anymore.

 

All too often we are seeking God for healing, when we actually need deliverance from the unhealthy habits that are causing us to suffer. You see, we respect healing, but not health. Now my sister has eliminated a lot of foods from her diet in her quest to establish a healthy lifestyle. When it comes to smoking, well, that is another matter. For whatever reason, she hasn't quite connected the dots.

 

There are people with high blood pressure, diabetes and host of other health ailments who will justify their eating habits, alcohol consumption, etc. Regardless of how bad they feel they won't change. Our mindsets are powerful. What we feed our minds will determine our success in overcoming addictions of any kind. Even addictions of fueling our minds with self-depleting words that tear down and do not build up.

 

At some point, you have to come to the realization that these things are not good for you. You have to make a conscious decision to turn from the cursed things. This can only take place when you take a realistic look at your habits, acknowledge your culpability and stop doing them. You make the choice. Success begins and ends with you! Now that is the real thing!

SCRIPTURES

  

to commit sexual sins, who worship false gods, those who commit adultery, homosexuals, or thieves, those who are greedy or drunk, who use abusive language, or who rob people will not inherit the kingdom of God. That's what some of you were! But you have been washed and made holy, and you have received God's approval in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God. 1 Cor 6:9-11 (GW)

 

I am free to do all things; but not all things are wise. I am free to do all things; but I will not let myself come under the power of any. 1 Cor 6:12 (BBE)

 

Be not desirous of his dainties: for they are deceitful meat. Prov 23:3 (KJV)

 

O Lord, set a guard at my mouth. Keep watch over the door of my lips. Do not let me be persuaded to do anything evil or to become involved with wickedness, with people who are troublemakers. Do not let me taste their delicacies. Psalms 141:3-4 (GW)

 

Wine {makes people} mock, liquor {makes them} noisy, and everyone under their influence is unwise. Prov 20:1 (GW)

 

Do not associate with those who drink too much wine, with those who eat too much meat, because both a drunk and a glutton will become poor. Drowsiness will dress a person in rags. Prov 23:20-21 (GW)

 

Who has trouble? Who has misery? Who has quarrels? Who has a complaint? Who has wounds for no reason? Who has bloodshot eyes? Those who drink glass after glass of wine and mix it with everything. Do not look at wine because it is red, because it sparkles in the cup, because it goes down smoothly. Later it bites like a snake and strikes like a poisonous snake. Prov 23:29-32 (GW)

   

 

 PRAY


Father

 

There are things in my life I have no control over. These appear to be the real thing that brings me pleasure when in actuality they are for my demise. I can't seem to walk away from them and I keep justifying participating in these bad habits. I can't do it by myself. I need Your help to overcome them. Thank You for a new mindset as I become victorious over those cursed things that have kept me in bondage long enough and robbed me of my inheritance of an abundant life in You.

 

 

Amen
