Your enemy will use any and every trick possible to get God’s people to step out of time with God’s plan.
Children have been exposed to things at too early an age. The natural balance between the body, mind and spirit to receive instruction and preparation for each phase of life - each age, each developmental stage, has been altered by the enemy.
It’s not just the bad stuff, the violence and gross behaviors that so dominate your television set. Your children are exposed to adult themes far too early in their development.
They are being subjected to participation without preparation.
It’s not only children that find themselves out of time with their God ordained developmental growth, It’s teens too. Teens are exposed to adult materials and adult themes that alter their timely, natural development and accelerate it, and many times their innocence is stolen from them, before they even know what happened.
Adults aren’t exempt from the wiles of the evil one either.
Drugs & alcohol, cigarettes and junk food all speed up the aging process, causing people to age pre-maturely - out of God’s perfect timing.
It’s not just the things that you willingly participate in that can cause you harm or cause you to age prematurely or cause you to be out of sync with God’s plan for your life - There are toxins, pesticides, household poisons, lead-based paints, asbestos, mercury, radon, all of which can play a huge role in your body, emotions, mind and spirit.
Poor diet over a period of thirty years alters God’s perfect plan for your life and adversely affects your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual growth.
Note: I can hear the clamoring rebellion against such a statement from those who are not yet convinced that their diet plays an important role in their overall development. I've even heard people say it didn't matter at all what they eat, it's all the same. Wow! under-educated at best, diet plays just as important a role in your spiritual life as going to church. Would you go to a church that delivered dried up, pre-packaged, slightly tainted, tasteless and sometimes even rotten messages? I hope not, but that is what you are expecting your body to do? Give it up and get with the program. You are what you eat.
At each stage of growth there are truths about that stage of growth that pertain to who you are at that time in your development. Parameters were established by God that accurately reflect God’s will and intention for each stage of growth.
But, the balance of life has been distorted by so many influences. If it were not for God’s constant intervention in your life, every living soul would live outside of the will of God."
