Most ladies who struggle with compulsive overeating and binge eating have literally tried everything you can think of to lose weight. They’ve tried fad diets, healthy food plans, diet pills, and other dangerous methods of purging, without success. They’ve tried to eat only when hungry, count points, prayer, counseling, and yes, many have tried my program… without success.
How can it be that after you’ve tried EVERYTHING, you are still dealing with the same stuff?
Like I’ve said, I know the feeling, and this is the conclusion I’ve come to in my own life:
I DID NOT DO EVERYTHING I COULD!
It was the only logical explanation, and it might be for you too.
When I stopped denying the truth I had to admit that there was ONE thing I didn’t do: OBEY
Now please don’t stop reading just yet.
I know nobody likes to hear about obedience. Obedience is not easy and not much fun (just ask your kids), BUT IT’S THE ONLY WAY TO TRULY LIVE IN FREEDOM. If we disobey God and think we’re bossing ourselves, we’re fooling ourselves. The Bible clearly says that we are being ruled by the enemy if we’re not under God’s rule (Romans 6)
It’s the one or the other, there’s no neutral ground.
Have you tried obedience yet? I’m talking about wholehearted obedience to the Word of God and the voice of the Holy Spirit. Only you can answer this…
There are so many advantages to obedience. According to the Bible we remain in God’s love and joy if we obey Him.
John 15: 10-11
If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father’s commands and remain in his love. I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.
I dare you to start obeying the voice of the Holy Spirit today, it can be done, millions of people obey Him daily, you can too my friend!
- When He calls you into His presence – OBEY Him and find a quiet place
- When He nudges you to get some exercise – OBEY Him and ignore all the excuses
- When He urges you to step out of your comfort zone and follow your dreams – OBEY…
The more you obey God the more you will be able to resist the enemy’s temptations (James 4:7)
In my humble opinion (gained through trail and error): ONLY DAILY TIME WITH GOD AND EXERCISE WILL GET YOU IN TOUCH WITH YOUR SPIRIT AND BODY AND OUT OF THE DOWNWARD SPIRAL OF EATING DISORDERS
There is one thing you might not have tried and the one thing that will bring peace and joy back into your life: OBEDIENCE
It’s so hard to get this flesh under God’s control especially if you’ve been doing your own thing for so many years, I know. It may be painful and you might cry many tears of frustration, but I beg you to OBEY anyway. It will be worth every tear you cry.
Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy.
YOU CAN DO IT GIRL!
