Today I admonish you to know that you are strong in the LORD and the power of His might to say NO to overeating and addictive foods. It is abiding in the word of God that causes us to be free. True deliverance is the power of God manifesting in your life.
Romans 6:4 says as we died with Christ we also were raised by the power of God that we may live new lives. The truth is that you have authority and power over your body, your mind and your will. And again I say to you that You can say NO to excess and addictive foods.
God has given us supernatural means to calm down our flesh and suppress your appetite. Exercise is a natural way to burn calories and suppress your appetite for more food which makes it pretty super in my book.
Somehow in our christian walk we think it is some REQUIRED of God for us to always be struggling or striving in our lives. We think we only suppose to have totally arrived when we get to heaven. The word of God tells us otherwise.
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you," says the LORD. "They are plans for good and not disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
One of the keys to be victorious in our weight loss and eating is to DECIDE and DETERMINE that God is for us. He wants us to succeed. We get of Him as much as press in to receive from Him.
I believe there is nothing wrong with getting on a diet. I believe there is nothing wrong with exercise or any natural way to lose weight.
Yet as we work in the natural we are YET STILL believing in the supernatural for complete and lasting deliverance.
We should go forth eating right, exercising, praying and believing and like the 10 lepers in Luke 17 I we will be cleansed as we go.
Be Blessed, Manie
