“Not only am I calling you to offer your body in submission, but also I’m calling you to serve others as well,” said my Lord. “In addition you should also seek My will about your food choices, when to eat, what to eat and how much to eat. Then your victory over food will come.”
Yes Lord, I do want to serve You. And I want to help others too.
Therefore, I urge you brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy, and pleasing to God. This is your true and proper worship. Romans 12:2 NIV
“So do it today, not tomorrow. In fact, start now living in the victory I’ve already planned for you. Don’t wait until tomorrow.”
Of course Lord, I want victory in my life. But what do You want from me?
“Specifically, . . . I want all of you,. . . your heart, your mind, and your body.”
But Lord, I’m pretty messed up. Why would You want me?
“Child, I want all of you because you are Mine, even the messed up parts. Overall, you are to seek Me about all things. Seek My advice, My wisdom, and My guidance one day at a time, one moment at a time. So ask and ye shall receive.”
All who listen to My instructions and follow them are wise, like a man who builds his house on solid rock. Matthew 7:24 TLB
“In fact Child, I have many plans for you. First and foremost, I’ve already planned your freedom and total deliverance from this bondage of compulsive overeating. So as you offer your body in submission to My will, I set you free. Also read My Word. Thereby feeding your spirit and not your body.”
Being confident of this very thing that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ. Philippians 1:6 NKJV
“Child, know that I always finish what I start.”
That you may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ, being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God. Philippians 1:10-11NKJV
“Child, as you offer your body, your heart, and your mind to Me, I’ll fill you full of the fruits of righteousness. I will fill you with My Holy Spirit which increases the fruits of righteousness in your life.”
. . . so Christ will be magnified in my body, whether by life or by death. Philippians 1:12 NKJV
“Yes Child, I’m using your weight struggles as a witness for My glory. I will be magnified in your body as you yield yourself in total submission to My will for you. This also includes your food choices.
Do you think failure and entrapment is what I have planned for you? No, what I have planned for you will give you a hope and a future. My plans are not to harm you, but to prosper you instead. And I plan to fill you with My Presence forevermore.”
