"Wow. No wonder that still small voice is so still and small."Sometimes we are not able to detect the still small voice because it has been suppressed by our appetites. It is crucial for us to understand that the sins behind our appetites are progressive - they will only back down to starvation. We have tolerated the demands of our appetites so long that we now can only pacify them. Subtly, our appetites are cultivating our lifestyle. Our habits become part of our subconscious mind and we become acclimated to the lifestyle.
Do you consider yourself to be a victim of your lifestyle? Do you find yourself doing things that you would not do in your normal character? If so, know that there is hope. You do not have to be a victim of your subconscious. The reason why I say subconscious is that so many of us have been dictated by our hunger and appetites for so long that our destructive behavior patterns have become second nature. We don’t even give them a second thought.
I stated earlier that the sins behind our appetites are progressive and will only relinquish to starvation. In 2 Corinthians 5:7, the apostle Paul stated, "we walk by faith, not by sight." Although Paul was addressing a different scenario, the principle is applicable in this message. Paul said, "not by sight." Sight represents the five senses - the soulful realm. If we’re going to live a victorious life and allow our spirit to dominate our soul, we must starve those appetites that cause us to self-destruct. We must be discerning of what to nurture and what to starve in the emotional realm.
I challenge you to take time to evaluate where your present appetites are taking you.

I’ve come to realize that if I’m going to have the abundant life Jesus came to give me (John 10:10), I must continue to evaluate my appetite to ensure I do not take the path of least resistance, only because it’s undemanding.
Let’s continue to consider what hunger and desires are growing in us.
...but each one is tempted when, by his own evil desire, he is dragged away and enticed. Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death. James 1: 14, 15

When you sit down to eat with a ruler, consider carefully what is before you; and put a knife to your throat if you are a man given to appetite. Do not desire his delicacies, for they are deceptive food. Proverbs 23:1-3 -- New King James Version
Never allow your appetite to become more persuasive or better yet, driving, than your discernment or value system. Hunger can be a blessing or a curse; it all depends on what has cultivated your hunger, and, what in fact you’re hungry for. Be careful to take time and evaluate what you’re hankering for; for eventually your hunger will be pacified. (Note: The word pacified is used in the epitome of its definition.)
I will be sharing a thought here each week. I encourage you to purchase a small journal, pray over this word this week and journal as God speaks to you concerning this subject.
