Trust Me Child in blind faith. As you yield yourself to me, I’ll set you free from all your bondages, overeating, scales, and especially the bondage of performance based self-approval.
Yes, you only approve of yourself when you perceive yourself doing all things right. Therefore you only approve of yourself on those days you succeed at following all your self-created rules of performance.
Then on other days when you don’t succeed at following your own rules, you perceive yourself a failure. But none of My children are failures. Of course they are all strugglers and learners, but never failures.
It’s because I’m holding on to and teaching each one just as I am teaching you now. And each one will gain their victory just as you will gain your victory too.
Cease striving and know that I am God . . . Psalms 46:10 NASB
For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, “Do not fear; I will help you.” Isaiah 41:13
When you depend on yourself-inflicted rules, you fail. Because you’ll never achieve perfection in life, in obedience, or even in your food choices. But when you depend on My guidance, then I can lead you to inner peace and victory.
As a matter of fact, I can take your so-called failures and turn them around for your good and My glory. Now to begin this victory journey, read My Word for encouragement and instructions. Then you can see what I speak to you Myself through My words.
God, the Master, the Holy One of Israel, has this solemn counsel: “Your salvation requires you to turn back to Me and stop your silly efforts to save yourselves. Your strength will come from settling down in complete dependence on Me- the very thing you’ve been willing to do. . . . Isaiah 30:15 Message
In great trouble I cried to the Lord and He answered me; from the depths of death, I called, and Lord, You heard me! Jonah 2:2 TLB
Lord, Jonah was trapped in that fish. Now I’m trapped in this food addiction and I’m crying out to You. Help me! Would you deliver me from Myself?
Yes Child, I’m here for you. And I’ll help you. In fact, I’m helping you now. And you’re going to break free from this, for I have ordained it. I’m here to set you free.
“Victory is Mine,” saith the Lord. And I intend for you to have victory as well. In fact, I intend for all of Mine to walk in victory, for I am victory. Therefore victory is yours too. So you will never be a failure to Me.
Now go forth and walk in your victory today.
Yes Sir. Thank you Lord. Help me to follow and obey Your will in all things, in all ways, my actions, words, and thoughts, even to what I eat.
Renew my mind. Make it Yours. Create in me a clean heart and a steadfast spirit. I want to be steadfast to follow Your will in all things
Then the Lord ordered the fish to spit Jonah out onto the beach. Jonah 2:2
Without a doubt Child, you’re going to be free from your trap of self-inflicted bondage too, for I have ordered it to release you as well. Now watch and see how I work out all things for your good and My glory. So trust Me Child.
“Jesus loves me. This I know, for the Bible tells me so. Little ones to Him belong. They are weak, but He is strong.”
Lord, the USA needs You. We need righteous leaders who will rule us with wisdom, justice, and cause righteousness to prevail throughout this land.
Without righteousness leaders to lead us, we have no hope. For presently our government is full of evil leaders who only care about their own evil agendas and their own pockets.
Lord, deliver us from the evil that now rules our land. Have mercy on us and our USA too. May Your kingdom come to this land and may Your will be done throughout this land. In fact, Lord, without You we have no hope.
Lord, I need You. I need You to guide me and lead me for I have lost my own personal victory. And then I look at what is happening in our nation. It seems as “Victory in Jesus” has lost.
Child of Mine, “Victory is Jesus” has not lost. In fact, Victory in Jesus is here now. Child, I am here for you and I have already provided for you complete deliverance and freedom.
All you have to do is come to Me. Submit your will and your desires to Me. Then I will be able to set you free. It is through your submission that your victory comes forth. I know this is not logical to you, but it is truth. It is only through surrender that you gain freedom. And I will set you free.
Child, praise Me for your victory. Your words of praise will become your victory song.
Lord, what is my victory song?
“Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so. Little ones to Him belong; they are weak but He is strong.
Yes, Jesus loves me! Yes Jesus loves Me! Yes, Jesus loves me! The Bible tells me so.
Jesus loves me, He who died, heaven’s gate to open wide. He will wash away my sin, let His little child come in.
Jesus loves me, this I know, as he loved so long ago, taking children on His knee, saying, “Let them come to Me.”
More Words of Victory:
Child, that is your victory song, for it is My love for you that gives you victory. Now go forth in your victory, for I have created a victory just for you.
As a matter of fact, I have created a personal victory for each one of My children. So go forth, My child, in your victory today.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. John 3: 16,17
Child, today is a day of victory and rejoicing. (The following was hand-written in my journal on Resurrection Day.)
Good morning Lord. So how are You today?
Indeed, I am fantastic, great, and glorious! Today, the world, or at least those who know Me will celebrate My victory over death.
They will sing, they will preach, and they will celebrate My victory. Because it gives them hope for their own victory. And you know what?
Those who seek Me will find Me and I will give each one their own victory. In fact, I will give you victory too. Indeed today is a day of celebrating.
Victory over death, over Satan, over sin and defeat is celebrated today, It’s a great day of celebration, both in Heaven and on Earth.
So yes, I am ecstatic with joy as My people celebrate, “Victory in Jesus”.
And, child of Mine, I’m saving your USA and Israel too. For I will not let USA die. She will be a shining light on the hill and I will give her victory as well.
To you, everything looks hopeless. But child of Mine, the day of resurrection is coming. In fact, it is here now.
So today, celebrate, both My victory and yours too, for I AM victory. Celebrate with Me. Rejoice with Me. Look up, for your redemption draws nigh.
Celebrate My victory and yours too. It’s My victory that gives you victory. So celebrate, My child, celebrate.
Thank you Lord for these words. Lord, forgive me for I have made a lot of stupid choices.
This I know, My child. But if you’re willing to come unto Me and allow Me to lead you, then I will lead you. Above all,seek My wisdom over all your choices, trust My guidance, and follow My will.
Remember the song, “Trust and Obey. For there is no other way. Trust and obey”? That little song is truth. So trust Me and obey My will guiding you, for then your life will be a life of victory. Now celebrate this day.
Yes Sir. Thank you for talking with me this morning.
In fact I’m glad to talk to all My children all the time. Now read My Word today. For therein, you will find My promises and your encouragement. Therein, you will find words of victory, both Mine and yours too.
Words of Victory
Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has become a child of God. . . For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith. And who can win this battle against the world? Only those who believe that Jesus is the son of God. 1John 5:1, 4-5 NLT
And we know that the son of God has come, and He has given us understanding so that we can know the true God. And now we live in fellowship with the true God because we live in fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ. He is the only true God, and He is eternal life. 1John 5: 20 NLT
But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1Corinthians 15:57 NKJV
My child, I am for you. I have always been here for you this whole time. All throughout your life, I have been with you. From your youngest memory, even before that I’ve been here for you.
I created you. Therefore I already know your weaknesses and I know your strengths too. In fact, I know all of your heart and it is good. You’re funny and you mess up a lot, but I know your heart and it is good. After all, I live inside your heart because you invited Me.
Thank you Lord. You are good too. And I know Your heart is full of love for all, especially for those who struggle, who are in pain, and those who are being persecuted and suffering.
Yes My child, My heart grieves for them. But I do hold them in My arms and gather them into Heaven with me or I lead them to their victory here on earth.
Mankind can be so cruel and heartless without any compassion for others. All of this is due to the influence of Satan and his evil .
But My power is greater and those who suffer because of Me will be greatly rewarded. I snatch them away into paradise and peace.
But those who are consumed with evil will be consumed by evil themselves and suffer for eternity.
So the suffering you behold of those who are Mine will only be temporary. But those who are evil will suffer for eternity, throughout eternity.
My Child, don’t worry so much about what you see and hear on your so-called news for I have breaking news for them. I WIN! I AM the Winner! And those who are Mine also win.
They are overcomers for I provide unto them supernatural strength, My strength.
My Child, you are a winner too. You are an overcomer too.
Lord, I don’t feel like an overcomer at all. In fact, I feel like a failure most of the time, like a full bloated failure.
Child, this race journey is not over yet. And if I say you are a winner, then it is so. Don’t argue with Me for I am God and you are not.
But Lord, look at me.
Child, I do look at you. And I love what I see in you, My reflection.
Lord, I don’t see that at all. I see an overweight, frumpy, wrinkled person.
Child, I see My beautiful child, full of joy and love and compassion for others. Therefore I look at My creation and say, “It is good.”
Lord, help me to see what You see. So I won’t feel so defeated all the time. But I don’t want to be egotistical. I do want to to serve You and bring You honor and glory.
My Child, you do and you are and you will for I have ordained it to be so. Because I love you and you are Mine. I am for you. Never forget that. Never give up for you are Mine.
I Am For You
We love Him because He first loved us. 1John 4:19 NKJV
Do not be afraid or discouraged. for the Lord your God is with you whenever you go. Joshua 1:9 NLT

For this is how God loved the world. He gave His one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16 NLT
My child, choose Me-love Me with all your heart. Let go of your overabundant pleasure food. Trust Me. Commune with Me. Then watch and see how I set you free from all that holds you in entrapped.
Now look at Me, not what you see.
Lord, do I go weigh myself now for a starting point?
No, trust Me, not that box you stand on.
Lord there are so many hurting, so many suffering, even death because they choose You. Yet, here I am full and bloated because I choose pleasure food.
Child, if you will lean unto Me, then I will teach you how to succeed and prosper in your victory. I’ve planned victory for you all along.
It’s when your eyes look along at the pleasures of the wayside that you get sidetracked. So look at Me. Keep your eyes on Me. And I will lead you to your victory.
Today is a new day with a new victory, learning to walk, talk, and eat in My Presence. So allow Me to lead you in total dependence on Me. Seek My will, My guidance, and My wisdom in all things.
This also includes what you eat, where you go, what you buy or sell. My desire is to lead you to total victory- for I AM victory.
Yes Lord, I do want to bring You honor and glory. But it seems I am weak.
Child, I AM strong. Let the weak say I am strong.
Lord, when the thought comes, “Get something sweet” or “Get more”, I don’t even stop to think long enough to even seek Your help. In fact, I just go for the sweet junk food or I just eat everything blindly without seeking Your advice.
Please forgive my selfishness. Also would You forgive all my failures to obey You in all things, especially what I eat. Because I have loved my pleasure food more than you. So Lord, help me treasure you more than my necessary food.
Yes, I do want to obey You in all things and achieve the goal of victory You have planned for me. Help me do so.
Child, you can. Remember, you can do all things through My strength which I freely give to you. I’ll give you strength to win all your struggles and all your battles.
Choose Me-love Me, and I’ll set you free from this self-inflicted bondage.
Choose Me-Love Me

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Matthew 6:21 NKJV

. . . Let the weak say, “I am strong.” Joel 3:10 NKJV
My Child, you will learn. But know all throughout your life you’ll be learning. Because life is a process of learning.
So come into My Presence now and I’ll teach you for I am the best teacher. And you will learn. Also know I love you and I gave My life for you. That, My Child, is true love-“Giving”.
As a matter of fact, it’s through giving that true love is expressed. So learn that.
Now give yourself, your will, and your dreams to Me. Then watch and see what I bring about in your life, your victory. After all, the victory I give is the sweetest dessert ever.
Yes Sir, Here I am. I give myself to thee.
Child, you’ll learn life’s not about your pleasure. But instead real life is about My pleasure in loving you. It gives Me great pleasure to love and guide all My children to their personal victory.
In fact, I enjoy watching each one succeed in their individual, personal victories. After all, I created each child to be a winner. You’re one of My winners too. And I give unto you victory over all that comes your way.
Above all else, I want good conversation with you, not your “God-do” list. You feel guilt if you don’t get all your list prayed over. But I feel used when you only talk to Me about your “God-do” list.
My child, prayer is not your list. But rather real prayer is you and I talking together about everything in your life. Together we can talk about the needs of others you are concerned about and your needs as well.
But I also enjoy talking with you about all the events of your life. I enjoy hearing your opinions and thoughts too. What about the weather? I enjoy hearing about all your plans and your dreams too.
Yes, I want one to one, intimate conversation with you. But most of all, what I desire is true, honest conversation between you and I, not just your prayer list.
What I desire is conversation as one who is loved by another who is loved. Overall, I long for real, true conversation with all MY children. Most of the time, I just get their “God-do” lists.
My child, I’m doing something new in your life. So be filled with excitement and anticipation of what I am doing for this is a different adventure, full of wonder and victory.
So walk with Me. Talk with Me. You’ve heard, “It’s all about relationship.” That’s My truth. It’s My desire to have a deep intimate relationship with each one of Mine. In fact, I want this with all My children, each and every single one.
So Lord, what do You want me to do now?
Rest. For now rest in My Presence. Bask in My love. Share My love with others.

Despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us. And I am convinced that nothing can separate us from God’s love. Romans 8:37, 38 NLT
Child, I’ll give you victory if only you’ll listen and obey as I lead you.
Lord, help me.
Indeed I am helping you. But you must be willing to let go. Satan doesn’t want you to win your victory. He doesn’t want any of Mine to have victory. In fact, he wants all of Mine defeated in their weakness.
But I win. As you yield yourself to Me, I win and you win too.
Lord, I turn stupid at night.
Child, I will give you victory. If you’ll talk to Me before eating, then I will fill you with strength and wisdom. Because I intend for you to have victory and for you to be one of My “trophy children”.
So come to Me, first and foremost, before eating more than your body needs.
Lord, help me.
Child, if you’d come to Me, then you would be given new strength and new wisdom. Quit trying to do this in your own power. For I’ll give you victory.
The overwhelming compulsion to overeat would leave. Satan never wins over My Presence. Because I always win. I AM victory. So come to Me for Your victory.
Lord, help me manage my time correctly.
Child, you had time for Me last night.
Yes Sir. I know.
Child, if you would come to Me, I would lead you. For I am in charge of time.
Lord, help me.
Child, I am and I will. Just come to Me for all you need for I AM all you need. After all, I AM your provider.
Child, don’t think of yourself as a failure, for you are My “Victory trophy”. You are. Believe it.
Child, come to Me before compulsive eating. Just 15 minutes, invest 15 minutes in yourself. Place yourself in My Presence. For it is My Presence that gives you victory, My Presence. Think about that.
My Presence is stronger than your compulsions. It’s My Presence that guarantees your victory,
“Victory is Mine”, saith the Lord, for I AM the winner. With Me on your side, you can’t lose in defeat for I always win over all. Yes, all.
Even when it looks as though all is lost, I AM victory. I AM. How many times do I have to tell you? “Don’t look at what you see. Instead look at Me.”
So don’t even look at yourself for you don’t see what I see in you. I see you as My “Victory trophy”. Come into My Presence so you can see what I see in you, My Child. Indeed you are one of My victory trophies.
As each of My children come into My Presence in complete surrender, I re-create them into a Victory trophy. So Child, come to Me for your victory. I am holding your victory in My hand.
After all, I AM victory. Therefore all of Mine are victory too. So come to Me for your victory. I’ll give you victory.
Today Lord, I give you My heart. Forgive my many failures. Lead me this day to Your will in all things. Above all else, I want to make You proud of me. Furthermore I want all the victories You have for me.

God wants a relationship with you. The greatest desire of His heart is to have a relationship with you. Yes, YOU.
Below is one of my early morning conversations with Him about our relationship.
But know this, what He speaks to my heart, He also means the same for you. In fact, He loves you more than you can ever know. And He will even use your own weight loss struggles to reach your heart.
Child, I’m calling you unto Myself. I’m calling you unto Me. Your relationship with Me is more important versus any “work” you could do for Me. What I desire most is your heart toward Me.
Yes Sir. Help me Lord to love You as You desire. Help me to obey You in all things.
Child, I will lead you as you seek Me.
Thank you Lord for the weight loss in spite of the cake I ate last night.
Child, you’re thinking too small. Just as the story of the lottery winner who said, “Now I can buy a double wide”, you’re thinking too small. Now come unto Me and I will fill your mind with possibilities.
I will renew your mind and make it Mine. So come to Me and let go of all that stubble. I’ll show you what’s most important. I will show you great and mighty things.
Yes Sir. Is my prayer list okay?
Yes, but I’d rather converse with you versus hearing your rote list. Although I do realize lists help you stay focused. So it’s alright. What’s most important to Me is our relationship together.
Yes Sir. Help me to please You in all my ways, actions, words, thoughts, and even my food choices.
Child, what you need is a vacation. But more than a trip, your mind needs to rest in My Presence. That’s where your strength comes from, My Presence. So come to Me for I have much to say to you.
And Child, My words will be more encouraging than any other words you could hear. Allow Me to speak to your heart and mind. Allow Me to fill you with My encouragement.
Obey Me in this and you’ll see a great turnaround in your life. Let go of all else and come to Me. Then watch and see what I do in your life. Because I do have great plans for you, plans for a hope and a future.
God Wants Relationship
The words He speaks to me also applies to you as well. In fact, God is no respecter of persons. What He means for one, goes the same for all His children. Seek His Presence today. You’ll never regret it. You will find joy and peace in His Presence.

Child, you were created for freedom. As you yield yourself to Me, I’ll set you free. Then I’ll fill you with power to say “No” to unnecessary and trigger foods as you yield yourself to Me.
In fact, I’ll grant you the power to say “No” to all temptations. I plan on making you strong. Not defeated, but strong. Moreover I will grant you victory in all areas of your life.
So let go of what you have and come to Me empty-handed. Then I can I will fill your heart, mind, and soul with Myself.
Oh Lord, that’s what I want. That’s what I really need, more of You.
Lord, settle my mind, and my spirit. Create in me, a new heart and a steadfast spirit. Holy Spirit, lead me to Your will.
Child, as you seek My will, I’ll lead you. But you must seek, trust, and obey as I lead. When you turn your own way, I stop leading for I will not force anyone to choose My way. It must be your choice, your free will, that chooses to follow Me.
So let go of what is in your hand, your abundant food, your pleasure food, and your night-time eating. Satan wants you in bondage, entrapped in defeat. But you were created you for freedom.
Let go of your plans, your dreams, and your desires. For I have more for you. And I want to give you more beyond your dreams, plans, or desires.
What I have for you is beyond your imagination. I want to give you more, but your hands are already too full of what you are holding on to.
I’ve come to give you an abundant life full of victory.
Lord, my sins are piled so high that I can’t see my way out. I’ve lost my courage, my confidence and my assurance.
But You, Lord God, are Almighty. Could you, would you reach down and pull me out of this mudhole I dug for myself?
Child, I love you. And yes, I will lift you up to victory, the one I have planned for you. Quit looking back and beating yourself up for your battles lost.
Instead, look up to Me, for I am holding your victory.
Thank you Lord. Your mercy endures forever.
