God Has An Answer To Being Overweight
Whole Life Ministry
By: Phil Proctor
I have great news for you. God has an answer for being overweight. He knows why you are overweight and would love to help you lose those extra pounds. He is simply waiting for you to give him a chance.
Contrary to what many may teach, nothing happens in this world by chance. There is a reason and cause for everything. If you are overweight there is a reason for it. It is often a lot more complicated than just how much and what you eat. When it is all said and done it is what we believe that determines what we eat and what you weigh.
In the world we live in today there is an enormous amount of information about different ways to lose weight. There are all kinds of fad diets. The question is what is the truth.
Regardless to what you believe about God as the Creator, it has no bearing whatsoever on the fact that He is the Creator. Evil has gone to great lengths to discredit God as the Creator. The misinformation that evil puts out are all lies. When you buy into these deceptions you will reap the consequences of error as surely as if you were to attempt to defy gravity. God is well aware of exactly how you have been deceived. There is nothing that would please Him more than to set you free of deceptive beliefs. Secular science is able to tell you why you are overweight and give you all sorts of information about it, but is powerless in helping you to lose weight. When God reveals to you why you are overweight He will empower you to make right choices and correct false beliefs.
False beliefs can come from all kinds of places. Your reality of truth is a composite of your life experiences. Your perception of truth is truth to you. If your perception is incorrect then what you believe to be truth is also incorrect. Our perceptions can come from friends, family, work, school, and our church.
So then how do you get God to reveal truth to you. The Bible tells us that no sincere cry for help will ever go unanswered. God says that his word is truth. That implies that the in the Bible we will find the answer. The answer will be of no value unless you are willing to act on it. There is a common myth in Christianity that as long as you asked for forgiveness you can do anything you want to. Obedience to God’s natural laws are essential to success. The problem is, that in our own strength, we are not able to obey. The good news is that through the indwelling presence of his spirit and strength we are able to obey. I find it very interesting how few people ever read the preamble to the 10 Commandments. God himself says that He brought you out of bondage and because of that you will demonstrate the 10 attributes of his character.
God will never leave you without help. He will often use people, dedicated to Him, to assist you. It is not an easy thing to give up cherished false beliefs. If the Holy Spirit is convicting you of the need to lose weight, then He will give you the power to have victory. Not just a temporary weight loss, but permanent victory. A Christian lifestyle coach can be very helpful in helping you identify false beliefs that are limiting your success.
