WHAT MAKES ME OVEREAT?

What makes me overeat?
What makes me overeat? Will I ever lose weight and gain victory?

Lord, what makes me overeat?

Child, it’s your spirit that’s hungry. But you’ve been feeding yourself. The real issue is that you hunger for My Presence, but you’re going to food instead of Me.

So Lord, what am I to do? How can I defeat these cravings that drive me crazy? What makes me overeat like I do?

Also I feel ashamed of talking to You about my food when there’s so much suffering and heartache in the world. But what am I to do?

Child, go back to the original plan I gave you. Back then during your first 40 days of eating according to My instructions, you were very careful to eat half portions.

Know that it’s not half your food I desire, it’s your submissive heart before Me I desire. As long as you’re holding on to food in your hand, you can’t receive your victory that I’m holding in My hand.

Why you ask? I’ll tell you why. Back then you believed. Now you expect defeat and failure.

Back then when I first told you what to do, your thought was, “I can do this.” Now your thought is “I can’t do this.” That’s your main issue, your belief.

If you think you can’t, you’re right. You can’t.

But you forget, “I can.”

But Lord, are you going to take the food out of my hand?

No, I’m going to take the desire out of your heart.

I don’t see that happening.

Don’t sass Me. Trust Me instead. As it is said, “You’re on thin ice.”

Yes Sir. But . . . it’s just I don’t know what to do.

Do exactly as I’ve instructed you. As you follow and obey My instructions, then you will see victory.

But Lord, what makes me overeat like this? I can’t control myself. Why?

Overall it’s your heart that’s the problem. You love food pleasure more than Me.

Oh Lord, I’m so sorry. How can I change?

Child, you can’t. But I can. It’s time for you to have heart surgery- a circumcised  heart before Me. As you submit yourself to Me, I will cut away portions of food-love from your heart.

But you must come to Me daily (sometimes by the minute) for your heart circumcise surgery. As you come to Me, I will remove the part of your heart that loves food. And I will fill your heart with love for Me and others too.

Carry a small notebook with you. When you want to eat, write prayers to Me and for others. So you’ll replace food pleasure with intercession for others. This will fulfill two needs, the needs of others for prayer and the need of you to resist temptation for food pleasure.

My original plan for fasting was to change hearts and replace food consumption with God interaction.

So you’ll replace food consumption with intercession for others. This is a good plan, for it will fulfill two needs, the needs of others and your need to resist temptation.

Instead of your time being used eating, you will now be using time for intercession. This is a good plan.

Also be careful about your portions. That’s a visual of your submission heart, not a greedy heart wanting it all. It’s your submissive heart I desire. It’s your love I desire most of all. I’m not a controlling God that demands obedience. No, I am a God that longs for your love above all else.

It’s the love of food that destroys, robs you of your victory

It will be My love that grants you victory.

Feed On This

The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, And He delights in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down; For the Lord upholds him with His hand. Psalms 37:23‭-‬24 NKJV

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

And because you belong to Him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin (food compulsion) that leads to death. (Guilt, weight gain) Romans 8:2 NLT

Change Your Self-Talk 2

Change your self-talk to “I am a child of the King. I’m strong and delivered. His blood is in my soul. Therefore I am strong and victorious. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” 

______________________________________

Thank you Lord for this weight loss, even though last night right before bedtime I binged on No Sugar Fudgesicles and satsumas.

Change your self-talk to “I am strong. These have no power over me.”

 

Change your self-talk to, “I’m stronger than these.”

 

First thing this morning, I woke up with self-talk, “I’m so stupid. Why did I do that? I know better. Why am I so stupid?”

Then when I stood on the scales, there was a weight loss. What? . . . How can it be? But there it was, even after standing on twice, still a lower number.

Again more self-talk, “It would have been more weight loss if I hadn’t ate all that before bed. Why did I do it again? Why? I’m so stupid.”

Then the Lord spoke to my heart: “No, you’re not stupid. Change your self-talk. From now on, say to yourself- ‘I am strong. I am delivered and set free.’ This is what you say from now on for you are Mine.

None of Mine are defeated for I AM victorious in all things. So confess who you really are. 

Change your self-talk to “I am a child of the King. I am strong and delivered. His blood is in my soul. Therefore I am strong and victorious. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” 

Yes Sir.

Old Lies or Truth

Old lies or truth, what do you listen to? Specifically what do you speak in self-talk, old lies or truth? (Note: This is a repost from earlier this year, but I need to hear it again. How about you?)

Here’s some examples of old lies and truths I’ve heard:

1. Old Lie: “You’re fat and ugly too.” This was the #1 lie I’ve heard throughout my life, a lie from Satan.                                       This picture was made in May 2013.

Truth: You’re created in God’s image. So you’re beautiful. After all, God don’t make ugly. In fact He delights in you just as you are. And He sings over you too.

The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in His love, He will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing. Zephaniah 3:17 NKJV

2. Old Lie: “You’re a failure. You can’t stick to a diet. You can’t do anything right. Even if you lost weight, you’ll just gain it back.” This lie competes with #1 for first place.Romans 8:28 and trust

Truth: With God on your side, you’re guaranteed victory. “Never a failure. Always a lesson.”

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

But thanks be to God, who gives us victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:57 NKJV 

3. Old Lie : You’re older now, so its harder to lose weight. After all, your metabolism has slowed down to nothing. So why try? Just quit. Eat all you want and enjoy life.

Truth: Eating, although pleasurable, is not the source of joy in life. Living in God’s Presence is the ultimate source of joy. And He will fill you with His joy, true joy unspeakable.

You have made known to me the ways of life; You will make me full of joy in Your Presence. Acts 2:28 NKJV

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

Old lie or Truth Does life feel like this? It’s an old lie that food will make you feel better. It’s truth that seeking God’s advice will bring peace.

4. Old Lie: Everything’s going wrong today. It seems the world is going crazy. So go ahead, eat some comfort food. Then you’ll feel better. Food is comfort and pleasure. After all, you’re under a lot of stress. So get a treat.

Truth: Overeating causes more stress. When your clothes get tight, the scales go up, and shame comes due to overeating, you have more stress.

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6 NKJV

God’s Presence brings peace and victory. So what do you listen to, old lies or truth? You get to choose.

Old lies or truth This is the truth. We have victory because of Jesus.

I Can Do All Things.

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

Lord, I’m sorry about my overeating.

Child, I love you. 

But Lord, what about him, her, or all of them?

I love them too.

Child, yesterday you asked for a scripture to hold on to – to claim as a promise- to believe in. Here it is:

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

I AM on your side and I will help you because I love you. Now repeat after Me-

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

 But Lord, what do You want me to do?

i can do all things
40 Days of Victory
Day 2

To repeat what I’ve told  you many times already. 1. Seek My will in all you do, even to what you eat. 2. Listen as I speak to your heart. 3. Follow My guidance. 4. Obey My words. 5. Trust Me for I work out all things for your good. 

But Lord, even this weight gain?

Yes Child. for this weight that so easily attaches itself to you causes you to seek Me. Therefore I am working it out for your good. 

Although I intend for you to have victory over this food addiction. Also know that it’s not My desire that this freedom process take you 40 years. Of course, you make that choice by your actions. 

Oh Lord, the worst part is I feel that I have sinned and embarrassed You by my weight gain. I can do all things

Child, I will never give up on you. I never give up on any of My children. Rather I’m always drawing on their hearts, calling them unto Myself. 

As a matter of fact, I’m calling on many hearts now to turn to Me for their victory.

My peace is their victory. I offer unto all peace of heart and peace of mind.

After all, My Love is their victory. And I offer unto all a love that cannot be erased. Therefore I will never reject or abandon them no matter what they do or say. In spite of their failures, I’ll always love them. In fact I’ll forever call on their hearts with words of My love. 

Strength I offer them, not physical strength to move boulders. Instead I offer strong inner strength to withstand the pressures of life, especially when it feels overwhelming. Indeed, I am always by their side holding them up in My strength.
