“My child, lay aside that self-help book, it will not help you. My Book will help you! You will find the answers you are seeking in My Book.”

“Yes sir.”

“My child, . . . do ye still not know that I love thee so? It is My love that will deliver you. There is no self-help book that will bring you freedom and deliverance from your bondage, only My book will. Look no more for your answers in man written books, but choose My book. I will be your deliverance.”

“Yes Sir. Lord, I started yesterday morning in such victory but yet the closer I got to bedtime, the more I ate. Lord, after so many times of asking for Your help and so many times of eating my way I am afraid to ask. Is there any hope for me? I have struggled with the excess weight and my compulsion to overeat all my adult life. Is there any hope for me?”

“My child, I Am your hope. Come to Me! I am your deliverance, come to Me. I am your answer Come to Me! I AM!

Job 22:21 NIV Submit to God and be at peace with Him in this way prosperity will come to you.

“For you, my child, prosperity is your deliverance from the compulsion to overeat and your excess weight. Submit your will to Me, be at peace with Me, and I will deliver you.”

“Yes Lord.”

Job 22:22-30 NIV Accept instruction from His mouth and lay up His words in your heart. If you return to the Almighty, you will be restored: if you remove wickedness far from your tent and assign your nuggets to the dust, your gold of Ophir to the rocks in the ravines, then the Almighty will be your gold, the choicest silver for you. Surely then you will find delight in the Almighty and will lift up your face to God. You will pray to Him, and He will hear you, and you will fulfill your vows. What you decide on will be done, and light will shine on your ways. When people are brought low and you say, ‘Lift them up!’ then He will save the downcast. He will deliver even one who is not innocent, through the cleanness of your hands.

“My child, if you will submit to Me, then I will make your way prosperous. Accept My instructions and seek My will over every detail of your life, including your food. I will deliver you from your bondage. You will find freedom in My Presence. Return to My Presence, I will restore you to what you once were, a lady walking in assurance of victory!
Let Me remove the wickedness of self-seeking and self pleasure from you. Let go of your desire for these pleasures. For you, My child, your strongest desire in the riches of pleasure is for ‘pleasure foods’. Let go of it! Find your delight in My Presence versus the delight you now find in these ‘pleasure foods’. Lift your face to Me, I will hear your prayers, and you will find the strength to resist the temptations. You will be able to keep your vows to ‘fast’ and turn away from your gluttony.
Yes, My child, you will be able to choose healthy foods, the cookies, etc. will no longer have power over you. You will no longer walk in defeat because the cake, etc. called Your name. Instead, you will walk in the light f My Presence.
My child, I plan to use this testimony of the victory I brought to you to help others that are held in bondage to ‘pleasure foods’. I delight in delivering those that are not innocent. I delight in the cleansing of hearts and hands with MY Holy Spirit, the refreshing deliverance of sin.”

“Yes Sir. Thank you my Lord for these kind words of encouragement. Thank you for the pleasure of Your Presence. Help me Lord, I ask for strength to resist temptation and to walk in Your Presence. Let me find that Your Presence is sweeter than any ‘pleasure food’. Let me find my pleasure in You!”

“My child, today you will have the pleasure of My Presence. Walk with Me, I will show you the path of freedom.”

“Yes Sir.”
