During the Eating as an Act of Worship Ministries Health and Fitness Course, we study the Book of Daniel. Daniel and the three (3) Hebrew boys are EAW Ministries role models because they exemplify how to eat for the glory of God in a hostile environment. Just as Daniel and his friends were surrounded by enemies who would have killed them for adhering to their godly eating lifestyle, so are you.

For instance, there are visible enemies that you must confront daily, meaning the restaurants you have to pass to get to and from home, the food and beverage advertisements you see and hear along the way, and the commercials about food that invade your living space as you relax in front of the television.  However, they are merely the pawns on the front lines of the battle. The true enemies are not flesh and blood.

On the contrary, you are fighting against the invisible powers, principalities, rulers of the darkness of this world, and spiritual wickedness in the high places (Ephesians 6:12). They are the driving force behind the world’s food and beverage industry, and it is them that you are really at war with for your physical health and spiritual well-being. Consequently, our society is just as hostile to those who eat for the glory of God now as it was in Daniel’s days.

Notwithstanding, the same God who equipped Daniel and his friends to not only survive but thrive in a hostile environment because they chose to honor Him with their bodies and eat for His glory despite the threat it imposed, will do the same for you today when you choose to follow their example in spite of the opposition you face (Daniel 1:17)! The truth of the matter is the enemy will still seek to steal, kill, and destroy you (John 10:10) whether or not you choose to eat for God’s glory. 

If you choose disobedience, Satan will initially steal your health, then kill your body via an obesity or eating disorder-related illness, thereby destroying the abundant life you were intended to share with your family and friends.  Conversely, if you choose to obediently eat for the glory of God, things change.  The enemy will try to oppose you, but if like Daniel you remain faithful and resist the enemy, you will discover that God will protect you, fight for you, and equip you to succeed!
