Victory Comes When It’s Expected

Your victory comes. But child, you’re still trying to obey your own self-conceived rules for weight loss victory. You can’t do this without Me. I gave you victory once before and I will again.

Lord, please forgive me yet another time. Yesterday was a family Thanksgiving feast. When will I ever get this “food issue”right?

Child, in your own strength you never will, but I have already won. And Your victory comes. In fact it’s already been achieved in My Name, written and assured by My Blood. 

Lord, I’m so messed up.

Child, I specialize in mess-ups. If you had stopped before eating yesterday and sought Me, then you would have maintained your victory. But you didn’t seek My guidance, therefore you had defeat instead.

Lord, what do I do? How do I eat?

Child, try thanking Me for helping you make good choices with your food, with your “to do” list, and with your interactions with others. Focus on praising Me for the victories I give unto you, even before they come.

Instead of looking at food as overwhelming temptations, see food as opportunities for upcoming victories. Anticipate and praise Me for the victory ahead. Victory  comes when it is expected. Instead of going to family gatherings with an attitude of anxiousness over abundant food expecting temptation and thereby defeat, choose to expect victory. Victory comes when it’s expected. You’ve heard, “Choose this day whom you will serve.” I say this day, choose to praise Me in advance for your victories, food or otherwise. 

Instead of worrying over money, or rather lack of, choose to praise Me for your upcoming victories. Instead of worrying about your body, either how it looks or how it functions, praise Me. Then look for and note your victories, the victories I send to you everyday. Instead of judging yourself for your failures and beating yourself up mentally, start focusing on praising Me and expecting victories. Everyday there will be battles of one kind or another, but if you focus on praising Me in advance for your victories, you will discover that your day will become full of victories.

You asked Me to renew your mind. This is how I will renew your mind. Through My Presence and through your praise we will change your mind. You choose this day whom you will serve. You can’t win through following rules of “don’t touch” or “don’t eat” that. But you will win total victory achieved only through Me.

My child, how easily you become distracted. Keep your eyes focused on Me and I will bring about your victory. You’ve heard “Rejoice Always”. As you focus on rejoicing, victory becomes attracted to you.  Your victory will come. 

Yes Sir. Thank you Sir.

  1. Oh Debbie,
    I loved this post- pray in anticipation of victory. I am going to follow this. I am glad you didn’t over indulge during Thanksgiving.
    I created accounts for Walmart, Wayfair and Bass Pro shops- none of them ship outside the US. Please write about some retailers that do.

    1. Susie I will have to check to see- I’m so glad you liked the post. I actually was missing you yesterday wondering if you were at home or at US visiting family.

                1. It usually does not snow here. Today it was cloudy but no rain or snow. Our high temp was in the 60’s. Too warm for snow .

What do you think?
