Devotional for Dieters

Saturday, August 01, 2015

Dear God, help me walk through my fears by facing them instead of being paralyzed by them. I want to take Your hand and trust Your heart with all that is within me. Give me courage today to take the first step. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Aren't we all afraid to take that first step. The first step we need to change our lives even if it is for own good, say for instance we need to move to a new town because of a divorce, or start a new diet , because we have high blood pressure.

We know that we need to take that first step. But why are we so afraid of the change? Maybe it is because we think people won't like us if we are not the big jolly people we supposed to be. Or we don't make all the dessert's for the church parties anymore. Well that's okay, if that is what it took for them to like us, then they really weren't our friends to begin with.

We need to take that first step and take Jesus' hand and step out with Him and change for ourselves. Learn a whole new way to look at ourselves in the mirror and on the inside. It is then we will start to love ourselves and want to change the way we look at food and exercise.

This will be our defining moment when we will no longer be afraid of Change.

Psalm 34:4, "I sought the LORD, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears."

    Fear is one of Satan's greatest tools against us. It keeps us from loving ourselves as Jesus loves us. Arm yourself daily with prayer and the love of God!

    This makes so much sense an applies to other areas of my life. I cant get over the fear of how much things will change and I dont know if I will like what changes. But he is for us and not against us.
