Let's start taking our God given lives back to reality and Spiritualy. First we need to get in touch with our feelings, our true emotions of "Why" we over eat in the first place. Then maybe we can begin to understand exactly why we feel the need to turn to food instead of God. What do you think?
I think we can do both through open discussion and prayer, alot of prayer. Start by reading
(Ephesians 6:12)The Full Armor of God
…11Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. 12For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.…"
I believe that as we fight our own emotions we are also in a fight with ourselves spiritually. That age old enemy that has controlled us all along is trying to control us still. Trying to keep our emotions in turmoil, to keep us locked in the past, keep us locked in the pain that causes us to turn to food, alcohol, sex or even drugs.
So when we turn to our comfort foods and tend to over eat, we are trying to soothe those hurts, those unbearable emotions. That is why it is critical that we turn to Christ on a daily basis. We must never loose site of this.
We must first secure ourselves with the complete truth and face it and to do this, We have to accept the absolute truth: Jesus Christ and we need to put on the complete Amour that God has Provided us with. Next read "If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free" (John 8:31-32)."
Become secure in your Lord and Saviour, Gird yourself with the full armour of God in order to win this Spiritual Battle.
Our emotions and what we tell ourselves about ourselves is what conforms us and our images. It is what we tend to believe about ourselves. And sometimes we lie to ourselves, like after overeating, we might call ourselves a pig or tell ourself that we deserve to be over weight. And that is just not true. No one deserves to be over weight and no one is related to a swine. This is just what we tell ourselves when we are feeling low and bad about our actions. But now it is time to learn about forgiveness and healing. Learning to let go of the past because you are now reborn in Christ.
Remember how much Christ loved you and what He did for you, me and the whole world. And if He is willing to do that just think How willing He is to work with us on our health and weight.
And all we have to do is ask, make it known to Him through daily prayer and spiritual studies.
