Daily Devotion for Healthy Living

Let no man say when he is tempted, 'I am tempted of God:' for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man.
A woman I knew once told me, 'If God wants me thin, He'll make me thin. Besides, He wouldn't have made so many tempting things if He didn't want me to eat them. The poor woman took no personal responsibility for herself, and within a year of our conversation, she was dead. Her heart just couldn't take the strain anymore. This woman was my sister in law Mary. Mary died weighing 447 pounds. She had a host of health problems, asthma, sleep apnea, diabetes type 2, heart palpitations and on top of all this she suffered from severe depression. God will be faithful to help us, He will not do it all Himself. He does not tempt us, nor does He cruelly tease us. He wants only to help us, but we must want to help ourselves.
Today's thought: God is not the source of temptation, but the solution!
