Temptation, Lord Help Me

TemptationsTemptation, everywhere I look. Lord help me. Forgive my stupid sins. Help me to please You in all I do, don’t do, say, don’t say, eat, don’t eat, and even what I think, or don’t think. Fill me with a greater desire for You versus anything else, even my food. Let me feed on You Presence. Thanks for loving me even though I don’t deserve it.

Uh Lord, . . . were You ever tempted by food?

Yes Child, I was tempted to overeat many times. Why do you think the Pharisees accused Me of being with gluttons and drunkards? Because I was in the midst of it, excessive food and drinks. Others around Me were eating and drinking excessively but not Me. I was busy ministering to those around Me.

The temptation was overwhelming, but with My Father’s help I resisted. So I do understand when the urge to eat is excessively overwhelming. Yet I resisted and overcame. You will too.

For I will help you overcome this temptation. You are an overcomer because of My blood, shed in victory. The world presumed it was defeat. But instead, it was My victory!

Now you’re an overcomer because of My blood. My DNA is all through you. My blood is running through your body, spirit, and soul. Believe My Child. Then watch and see what I will do. Believe. 

Thank you Lord for Your love and encouragement. You understand exactly how I feel. You know how I love food. It’s so tempting and it’s been defeating me too. Thank you for making a way of deliverance and victory for me. Oh, and thanks for the weigh loss this week too.

Lord, You’ve never failed me. It is I who has failed You, many, many times. Please forgive me and help me to please You.

Child, every time you choose Me, you please Me. I have not and will never give up on you.
