Weight-loss Scriptures

I have found some scriptures to help affirm and strengthen me on this journey of weight-loss! I hope it inspires you too!

Mark 8:34 Whosoever will come , after me, let him DENY HIMSELF, take up his cross, and follow me.

Proverbs 13:25 The righteous eateth to the satisfying of his soul: but the belly of the wicked shall want.

James 5:16 confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer availeth much.

Bind the spirit of Desire, /Indulgence, or Gluttony, in the name of Jesus Christ. Loose the spirit of Self-Discipline, Will-Power, or temperance in the name of Jesus Christ. Remember, to thank the lord and praise him daily for the overcoming power to resist the devil and thank him for the word being made flesh in your body and soul as you quote these scriptures! The enemy would like to ruin your body because it is the temple of the living God (2 Corinthians 6:16) Therefore, he is the culprit giving you the desires to eat the things which are weakening your body. When you are tired, sick, and unhealthy, you are not fit and available for God's use. So many Christians are heavier than they should be because the enemy is buffeting them in this way. Physical infirmities relating to obesity are not being criticized but can be healed also.
When you take heed to this exhortation, you are causing your spirit to reign in ascendancy over your soul. The desires of the flesh are in the soul area where the enmity of the flesh works to destroy the temple of the living God. The tools which our Lord gave us for this battle are found in binding and loosing, not deliverance. You are not being possessed when you cannot resist the temptation to eat in a gluttonous way, you are giving in to carnal desires. It is a battle in the flesh to overcome in this area; but when you do, the joy of the Lord is truly your strength, for you have resisted the enemy, so he must flee, because you have submitted unto God in obeying His word. May the Lord be with you in a mighty way and give you the overcoming power which you need to carry through!
