The Gluttony Monster

The Gluttony Monster

Lord, I think this gluttony monster comes to my house every evening. And when the compulsion from this monster hits, I don’t even stop to think. It consumes me.

I need more discipline, consistency, strength, and the power to say ‘No’ to this food obsession, this gluttony monster. I can’t change myself because I am powerless over myself.

But My Child, I have all the power you need.

Lord, My day starts out so good. I eat appropriate and sufficient. But then after supper, here comes this gluttony monster to consume my health.

Yes Child,  I see it all. My heart hurts for you. And I long to set you free. It is My will to set you free. 

So Lord, what can I do? I know You said to semi-fast for 40 days. But ever since that day, I’ve been invaded by this overwhelming compulsive to overeat. In fact, I’ve been eating like crazy.

I know You said, ‘Come to You’. But I haven’t stopped eating long enough to ‘come’ to You. Lord, I don’t know what to do.

I want to please You. I want to love You as I should. But here I am, all messed up.

I can pray words, “Create in me a clean heart and renew a steadfast spirit”. But they are only words, just words, unless I change.

Child, I have watched you and I’ve been waiting for you even as you fell. But I’m always waiting to catch you. I will help you, for I have the power.

You will win over this addiction, over this gluttony monster. You will defeat this compulsion for I created you to be a victor. I created you for victory.

So Lord, what do I do?

Pray without ceasing. Every hour of every day come to Me. Check it off your time schedule if you must. But you must come to Me.  

Lord, I do want You to create in me a clean heart. And I long for a steadfast spirit before You. Fill me with Your sweet Presence daily and forevermore.

Child, I intend to. You will win over this compulsive gluttony monster. For I am THE WINNER and I created you to be a winner too. Therefore expect victory.

Be strong in the Lord
There are no perfect people, but God has already planned for your victory.

Expect victory. You will have your victory for I have already designed it. I am holding it in My hand. And you are a winner. You will win.

It may look like defeat to you. But when I look at you, I see a winner. You are Mine. You are a winner for I have already declared it so. 

Now get up and wash your face. Go forth today marching in your victory

Thank you Lord for not giving up on me.

Child, I never give up on any of My children. 

FEED OH THIS

You have already won a victory . . . because the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world. 1John 4:4 NLT

For though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. 2 Corinthians 10: 3-4 ESV

Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. . . . James 4:7-8

Come To Me, My Child

Come to Me My Child

Come to Me first, My child, above all else and above all others. You’re listening to many others hoping they’ll say something to encourage you with hope.

But I want you to come to Me first and seek My words for your encouragement.

My child, it is I who gives wisdom and victory. It is I who give directions to those who are winners. And if you will seek My wisdom, I’ll lead you to your victory too.

Also My child, your debt is too fat. If you seek My wisdom, I’ll help you defeat that too.

For I am the winner above all else and above all others. Therefore if you come to Me and seek My wisdom, I’ll lead you to your victory. In fact, I will make you into a winner too.

So come to Me first above all else and all others for I am the Champion Winner. I am your source, I am your provider, and I am your winner. All who come to Me, I re-create into winners.

 

So come to Me, My child. Surrender, give yourself to Me. Seek My wisdom and follow My instructions. Then watch and see what I do with Your life.

Yes Sir. Lord, forgive me for all my diversions, for choosing my own way, and for seeking the words of others for encouragement. Forgive me Lord for I have failed in many ways.

But My child, you are Mine and none of Mine are failures. All of Mine are learners. You are a learner too. THEREFORE YOU ARE NEVER A FAILURE. But you are always a lesson. In fact you are My learner.

Now come to Me, come into My Presence and learn from Me, not others for they are only learners themselves. They are learning from Me.

So allow Me to teach you and then you can learn from Me. Seek My words, not the words of others.

Yes Sir. Thank you for taking your time to speak with me.

Child, it is My pleasure. I love you and I enjoy speaking to those I love.

Seeking Day

Seeking Day
Today is “Seeking Day”.

Today is your “seeking day”. Seek My will and seek My Presence. I know you’ll be talking to others, but focus on talking to Me today, all throughout your day. 

Lord, this is such a struggle. It’s an ongoing battle, a major struggle in my life. In fact, it seems I can’t ever win.

Child, victories only come through struggles and battles. There’s never a victory without a battle. 

But Lord, it seems like there’s a war inside of me and I can’t ever win.

My Child, you can win, for you are a winner. After all, you are Mine and all of Mine win. Because I always win. Therefore you win. 

But Lord, right now I feel like a loser, defeated before all to see, especially myself. I see myself as a loser.

So My child, quit looking at what you see. Now look to Me, so you can see what I see. For you, My Child, are strong and victorious.

But Lord, I start out my day strong. Then by night fall I’m weak and defeated.

Then change My child, change your pattern of life. 

How can I? When I wake up, the house is quiet and I can hear Your voice clearly. But in the evening I am tired, the TV is blaring, news is depressing and I fall asleep in my chair.  How can I change this pattern?

Child, make today your “Seeking Day”. You’ve been listening to many voices throughout your day. On this “seeking day”, shut off all other voices and settle yourself in. Seek My voice. Seek My Presence and you will have peace. When I am on your side, you are a winner. It is so for I have declared it so. 

seeking Day
Seek My Presence.

Promise Land of Victory

Your promise land of victory is just ahead. So Child, look to Me and keep going forth.

Promise Land of Victory

Know this Child, I’m helping you. I am with you on your side. And I’ll keep you wherever you go. I’ll always bring you back to your personal promise land of victory.

And I’ll not leave you until I have completed all in your life, until I have fulfilled all My promises to you and all My words. In fact, know this, I will never leave you. 

Even when you wandered off My chosen path for you, I never left your side. But I always gently guided you back to the path I designed just for you. 

Yes, I forgive your failures. But know this, you’re not a failure for you are Mine. In fact, none of Mine are failures for I have determined victory for all of Mine, My victory for each one.

Thank you Lord for Your mercy and Your forgiveness. Thank you for Your promises and Your love, especially Your love.

And thank you Lord, for never giving up on me.

Child, I’ll never give up on you. I never give up on any of Mine. I’ll never give up for I AM the WINNER over all, even you, My child.
