nutritionweightlossOne of the greatest sins in this country is idolatry—idolatry regarding food. From gluttony to anorexia, food has become the god of millions. Many sicknesses plaguing people today stem from unhealthy eating habits and a lack of exercise.

Having the right attitude about food, eating properly, and getting the right amount of physical exercise are essential to being a healthy and whole person. To serve the Lord to the best of our ability, we need bodies that function in the way that God designed for them to function.

If you are overweight as a result of overeating, or if you have been starving yourself or purging in an attempt to meet some unrealistic physical image—seek the Lord for help; He will not fail you. He will give you the strength to overcome gluttony, anorexia, bulimia, or poor overall eating habits.

In addition, research what the Word has to say about nutrition and temple maintenance to create a positive inner image of yourself.

To develop discipline and self-control in the areas of diet and exercise, make the following confessions:

In the name of Jesus, I declare that I cultivate temperance by subjecting my mind and body to God's Word. I cast down every negative thought about my appearance that attempts to exalt itself against the knowledge of God and His will for my life.

I exhibit self-control, diligence, wisdom, and patience regarding my exercise regimen and what I eat. I walk in the Spirit and not in the flesh. I put to death the unhealthy desires of my body. Jesus is Lord over my eating habits. I am more than a conqueror, and I can do all things through Christ Who empowers me.

I release most holy faith to bring these things to pass in my life and charge my angels to carry out each assignment. My words have creative ability, and in the name of Jesus, I have what I say. Amen!
