What if hidden in PLAIN sight were the answers to your weight loss problems? I NEVER knew that all of the answers for my weight loss questions were found in the Bible. Doesn't that SOUND crazy? It's crazy because it's just not conventional.
If you are a client of mine, in my weight loss program called, The Seeker's Method for weight loss, you KNOW that I love to share how scripture teaches about life AND WEIGHT LOSS! Read this scripture:
1 Peter 4:1-3 says, "Since Christ has suffered in His body, we must be ready to suffer also. Suffering puts an end to sin.2 You should no longer spend the rest of your life giving in to the sinful desires of the flesh. But do what God wants as long as you live in this world.3 In the past you gave enough of your life over to living like the people who do not know God. You gave your life to sex sins and to sinful desires. You got drunk and went to wild parties and to drinking parties and you worshiped false gods."
These scriptures TELL us to expect suffering and our weight loss is not exempt. The Scripture says that if you’ve suffered physically for Christ you have finished with sin. How true is this in your life? If you perpetually suffer in your flesh around the temptation that you so desire, have you begun yet to find that you no longer or tempted by it? And if you’re not there yet, get excited because that is in your future if you keep fighting your flesh. Verse two says that you won’t spend the rest of your life chasing your own desires, but you will be anxious to do the will of God. And you know that I add to that, even in weight loss. Soon you will begin to be led in the spirit. And when you are leading in the spirit, you will make the connection between your food & your faith. You will no longer seek to lose weight as much as you will desire to gain God! Soon enough your denial of temptation and foods that just don’t work for you in this season of life, will be about the work that God is doing in your life. In your heart. You will begin to see that he is transferring your faith from just knowledge, to a knowing in your heart. And once that transfer has happened, once you have true heart faith even in the kitchen, you will be stronger. Because you will be able to see the truth in verse three which says that you have had enough in the past of the evil things that godless people enjoy, their immorality and lust, their feasting and drunkenness and wild parties, and their terrible worship of idols. You will be able to see the role that food used to have in your life, relative to the role it has now. Very soon, you will start living for God even in your food choices. Because once you step into the clarity & discernment Of God’s voice in your life, there will be nothing that taste so good that you would be willing to sacrifice hearing him. So be encouraged! And see your suffering as suffering for Christ. Be finished with sin and allow yourself to see your suffering as how you practice releasing the strongholds of this world.
