TWO KEYS TO VICTORY!

English: Sign for the Cross Keys A common sign in Christian heraldry, referring to St Peter, to whom Jesus said: ‘I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven’. The papal arms show show crossed keys, and they occur again in the arms of various bishops. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Lord Jesus, here I am again seeking Your guidance for this day. Thank you for yesterday being successful. Lord, I pray that Your “will” is complete in our lives today. Guide us all to Your will.

—- I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye. Psalm 32:8 NKJV

Forgive me Lord, for being so easily sidetracked.

(Yes My child, I am just waiting here for you.)

Forgive me, Lord.

—- And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness…”    2 Corinthians 12:9 NKJV

(This is for you too, My child. My grace is sufficient for you and My strength will increase within you as you surrender your weakness to Me and seek My will. Obey Me in all things and I will continue to lead you.)..

.. . . . Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.          2 Corinthians 12:9 NKJV

(It is through complete surrender and obedience that allows Me to increase My power in your life.)

. . . . . For when I am weak, then I am strong.       2 Corinthians 12:10 NKJV

( My child, when you admit your weaknesses and surrender your life completely to Me without reservations, then I will increase My strength within your soul. Focus on surrender, for it is one key to victory! Surrender and obedience are two keys that bring complete victory.)

—- And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.     Matthew 16:19 NKJV

(Two of those “kingdom keys”, the first of My keys, are surrender and obedience. As you gain experience in the complete use of these two keys, then you will be given more keys as you progress toward your final victory!)

Thanks you Lord, I praise thee, for granting me the use of these two keys of Your kingdom. Help me to use them wisely and completely with the boundaries of Your will.

—- Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.”      Matthew 16:24 NKJV

(Surrender and obedience are your keys to your victory, My child.)

—-“For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?  For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels and then He will reward each according to his works.”         Matthew 16:25-27 NKJV

(My child, your “work” is to completely  surrender your will  and keep up obedience to My will.  As you give up your “will ” to Me, I will reward you with total and complete victory. So, stay focused on these two goals,  “surrender and obedience” for there is your victory!)

Yes Sir!

OH, VICTORY IN JESUS!

Lord, so much has happened since I last wrote; we lost a dear friend, we lost a dear brother, and now we are caring for an elderly parent in our home. But praises be to you my dear Lord, for You are carrying us through it all!

Lord, I praise You for through all these stresses You have maintained me! You held me in Your arms of comfort. In the past during stressful times I would have turned to the comfort of food, but You Lord were my comfort through all of these events of the past several months. You Lord, are my source and for this I praise You! Continue reading OH, VICTORY IN JESUS!

YOU ARE MY ONLY HOPE! (Written on May 16,2013)

Lord, I bought the book, “Dairy of a Fat Housewife” because I have indeed fallen and I can’t get up!

(My child, I am here!)

Lord, I have had my face down in the feeding trough! I now come before You with the crumbs still on my face and my belly swollen to its fullest capacity. I have run to my sin eagerly and with only a sight hesitation. Previously, I made a vow to fast and eat only one meal a day for two weeks. Now, what have I actually done? I put my face down in the feeding trough, then when I get out of the trough I graze in the field of pleasure foods. Lord, we have talked about this so many times. I have confessed my sins over and over. I have begged for forgiveness, then I just run to consume even more and more of my sins. Lord, I truly feel that there is no hope for me, that maybe I should just give up and accept this fat, plumb woman with the fat plumb cheeks that I am!

(My child, I am Your only hope! I AM!) Continue reading YOU ARE MY ONLY HOPE! (Written on May 16,2013)

GOD's GASTRIC BYPASS

Lord, I saw that girl, she is so skinny! She told us that she is now a size 6! Wow! The last time I saw her, a year ago, she was really pudgy. She had a gastric bypass.

Lord, I want a gastric bypass, but I do not want to go to a doctor for surgery. Lord, I want You, or rather I am asking You to perform a gastric bypass. Lord, would You be My doctor and perform a gastric bypass on me?

Continue reading GOD's GASTRIC BYPASS

BACK TO START AGAIN!!

“Well Lord, here I am again! Right back where I started! Lord, after a whole week of obedience, I blow it big time! I ate some cookies before bed, then after being asleep for a few hours, I woke up and finished the leftover chicken salad with some crackers! Now, here I am again, in Your Presence Lord, with crumbs from my sin all over my face! When will it ever stop? Is there any hope for me?” Continue reading BACK TO START AGAIN!!

LORD-GIVEN FREEDOM

“Lord, I want to do Your will! Thank you for helping me yesterday, helping me not get that extra piece of chicken and that second piece of cake. Thank you Lord, for only You could stop me from eating too much. Thank you for convicting me as soon as the food was in my hand. Because of Your conviction I dropped the chicken and put the second piece of cake back, thank you Lord. Continue reading LORD-GIVEN FREEDOM

THE PATH OF FREEDOM

“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.”

Continue reading THE PATH OF FREEDOM

HERE I GO AGAIN- STARTING OVER AGAIN

“Lord, how wonderful it is! How thankful I am! Lord, I am bowing before You again. You Lord, have mercy for me yet again. For this, I offer praise unto You!”

At age 601/2, I am finally going to defeat this enemy of the extra weight that so easily besets me. Yep, the saddlebags  and the bondage of overeating banished forever through the power of the Holy Spirit!

“Lord, I know You are my only hope of freedom! Diets don’t work, not for me! I either won’t or rather don’t stick to a diet or an exercise program. Lord, You are my only hope. I am coming before You, laying down the sacrifice of all my extra snacks and sweets on Your holy altar as my ‘sin’ offering.”

( “My child, I gave My life already as a sacrifice for your sins. Sacrifice is not required from you, My child, what I desire from you is your love and your obedience.”)

1 Samuel 15:22 NKJV:  So Samuel said, “Has the Lord as great delight  in burnt offerings  and sacrifices, as in obeying  the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed than the fat of rams.
