If You Listen


Child, if you listen and obey My instructions, then you will have success in your weight loss struggles. In fact, if you listen and follow My instructions, you will have victory in all areas of your life.
Today, with My help, My strength, and My power, you will gain your victory. After all with Me on your side, all things are possible.
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13
Child of Mine, you can eat less. You can even fast according to My instructions for you. Child, if you listen and follow My instructions, today will be a day of victory. And you get to choose.
“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
Child, when the thought to overeat first comes, resist the devil and he will flee.
“For the Lord is a sun and a shield, the Lord will give grace and glory. No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.” Psalms 84:11
Child, as long as you walk in My will I will be your shield. If you listen and follow My instructions, then I will provide to you all the strength you need to resist temptation.

With My power, you can resist the temptations of the devil and he will flee from you. Also, as you sing your praises unto Me, he will leave. He can’t stand to hear praises toward Me, so he leaves.
Resist the devil, and he will flee. You can win this battle for I am with you, and I am on your side. In fact I will guarantee your victory if you follow My instructions for I am on your side and I always win. Therefore, you win.
I guarantee you, if you listen and obey, you will have success. If you submit your food choices and your life choices too, then I will lead you to your life victory and success over defeat
“But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Corinthians 15:57

Here I am in a sinkhole of defeat. Lord, can you help me? Is there any more hope for me?

Child, I am your hope and your victory.  So follow My instructions in all things and in all your ways. Then you’ll be blessed and you will succeed in victory.

Lord, can You help me?

Yes My Child, watch and see what I will do. It’ll be surprising to you.

Lord, forgive my many failures. Overall I’ve failed You in so many ways, so many times. Help me follow Your will in all my ways, words, actions, what I eat, drink, and even what I think.

Furthermore, just renew my mind and make it Yours. Because I want to do right.

Child, I know. But you can do right. As you lean on Me, I’ll help you. It is in My power and My love that you will find strength. So, as you make Me a priority in your life, I will help you succeeed.

Indeed, I’m going to start a new chapter in your life. Today, I’m going to refill you and refresh you with My Holy Spirit. In fact, it’s not a new church you need, it’s a new re-filling of My Holy Spirit you need.

Today is a new day, another new beginning. Child, I am here for you. With My help, you can do all things. Just focus on this one day. Walk in My instructions. Walk in My will for you today.

Lord, help me.

Child, I will help you. In fact, I’m helping you now. I haven’t given up on you. So don’t you give up on you. As you look to Me, I will help you. As you obey My will for you, I will help you.

Lord, please don’t shut the door on me. Yesterday, I dreamed of a door shutting on me.

Child, when I shut a door, I always open a window. I have not shut the door on your dreams. But I have shut the door on your failures.

Now as you begin to walk in My will, you will walk in your victory today.
 In fact, those past failures are gone forever. As long as you keep your eyes on Me, you will walk in victory.

Lord, is this true?

Child, it is truth. As long as you look to Me, I’ll pull you out of this sinkhole of defeat you now find yourself in.

Look to Me for your victory. Because I hold both it and you in My hands. So look to Me. After all, My victory over the cross and death opens the road to your victory.

Yes Sir. Thank you Lord.

Child, never give up. Because I’ll never give up on you. So don’t you give up on you. After all I love you and I believe in you. Therefore, you can do this. Because with My help, you can do all things. So believe in Me and My power to save you from yourself.

Because I’m on your side, all things are possible, even your weight loss and a life of victory.

Yes Sir. Thank you Lord for not giving up on me.

Child, I never give up on Mine. Remember the story of the one lost lamb out of the ninety-nine. I’ll never give up. Because I will always look for and save those who realize they are lost and look for Me.

As they look for Me, I will be found by them and I will save them. Then I can pull them out of their sinkhole of defeat and misery too.

Thank you Lord.

Feed On This

But Jesus looked at them and said, “With men it is impossible, but not with
God; for with God all things are possible. Mark 10:27

What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he loses one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one which is lost until he finds it? . . . I say to you that likewise there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance. Luke 15:4,7 

Insteaqd, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes. Put on your new nature, created to be like God – truly righteous and holy. Ephesians 4:23-24

Say I am Strong

Say I am strongChild, let the weak say, “I am strong.”

Lord, I am weak.

Child, let the weak say, “I am strong.”

Lord, I can’t.

Child, you’re right. You can’t. But let the weak say, “I am strong.”

Lord, if I said, “I am strong”, then I’d be lying.

Child, did you invite Me into your heart?

Yes Sir. Say I am strong.

Then let the weak say, “I am strong”. For I Am strong and I Am in your heart. So let the weak say, “I am strong”.

Lord, I don’t know what to do. It seems I’ve failed at all my attempts for victory.

Child, you lost 90 pounds on My eating plan for you. Then you lost 40 pounds on your plan. I don’t call that failure. I call that success.

What was gained back I call struggle. My child, you are in a struggle and a fight.

But let the weak say, “I am strong”. Because of My power within you- you have all the strength you need to defeat this giant of food addiction in your life.

How do you think it looked to little David before the great giant? Let the weak say, “I am strong.”

Lord, I feel as though I am drowning in a sea of junk food.

Child, changing habits is hard. But I am with you.

Lord, I feel like such a wimp. So many are suffering so much. It looks so bad for so many, and here I am whining to You about my food issues.

Child, I see you. And I see them too. I see all. And I am helping each one with their struggles. Know that I care about each one no matter what level of struggle they are dealing with.  

To the greater need, I provide greater strength and peace. I surround them with My love and My Presence. But I do the same with you as well. 

Lord, I feel so stupid and insignificant.

Child, you are important to Me. I have a specific plan for you and your life. In fact I intend to help you fulfill and achieve victory. Yes, I have victory planned for you.

In fact, I have victory planned for each one of Mine. Some have greater victories. Some have smaller victories. But I have victories planned for each one. 

Lord, I don’t understand.

Child, it is not necessary that you understand. But it is necessary that you trust Me. Now, let the weak say, “I am strong”.

Alright Lord, I am strong.

Your Victory Planned

Say I Am Strong

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13 NKJV

He will keep you strong to the end so that you will be free from all blame on the day when our Lord Jesus Christ returns. 1 Corinthians 1:8 NLT
