Trust and obey, Child. To begin your new year, I want you to focus and listen for My guidance. For I will lead you as you seek My will. Then determine to trust and obey My will, for there is no other way to your victory.
Yes Sir. Just help me.
Child, I will. I am here for you and I will lead you as you go. Just as the priest entered the Jordan, I will lead you. But you must go forward and put in your feet. You must move first toward your goal.
And I will make a way as you go forward. I will part the Red Sea for you, but you must take the first step forward and keep on, keeping on. Keep going, do not stop. Rather keep on. Read My Word, Child. That will feed your spirit and make you strong.
Child, you’re trying to figure out how. Have you heard, “Pray without ceasing?” Prayer should not be just routine words. Instead of saying words, I want you to focus on hearing, trusting, and obeying My guidance. I’m not interested in “rule followers”. But I am interested in “heart followers”.
Yes Sir. I want to be a heart follower. Help me.
Child, I am. . .
Lord, I know when I overeat it interferes with the sweetness of Your Presence. But when I focus on the rules of a diet, I get overwhelmed and blogged down in achieving those rules. When I begin a new diet, I focus on following those rules for losing weight. But eventually I fail trying to maintain those rules. So Lord, what do I do now?
His New Instructions for Eating
You will know it is Me by My Presence with you. For My children know My voice. You will have a peace about the food of My will whether it is a salad or a dessert. You will know it is from Me. Part of your prayer before a meal is to seek My advice, and My will about what you are to eat.
Yes Sir. Your instructions are: First, I wait until hunger comes. Second I seek Your will about my food choice and wait for Your guidance. Overall, I trust and obey through it all.
Another thing, you do know how to stop eating before you’re full? Never get full for I want to fill you with Myself and My Presence. I want to fill you with My Holy spirit, not your pleasure food.
Yes Sir. Do I begin another 40 days of no desserts?
Child, you can focus on 40 days of : 1.Wait for hunger. 2.Seek My will for your food choice. 3. Trust and obey My food will for you. 4. Stop eating before full.
Lord, I think following diet rules would be easier to follow.
Child, I will help you. Trust Me. I will guide you and lead you to your own victory. Victory over self is the greatest achievement of a lifetime. Look to Me for your victory. Come to Me for your victory for I hold it in MY hand. I AM your victory.
Yes Sir. Thank you Sir. I will need Your help. I can’t do this on my own.
Child, know I AM with you. I will provide all the strength you need to accomplish My goals for you. After all, I have a plan for you, a plan to give you a hope and a future, not to harm you, but to prosper you. Trust Me.
