christian weight loss programs | healing scripture for health
Hi, I’m Renee Dumont, founder of Christian Weight Loss programs called the Real Food Real Faith Christian Lifestyle program. Today I want to talk about letting God teach us and speak to our hearts through prayer, worship and scripture. God blessed us with scripture for healing and health but we need to do our part to make it part of our life.
The spiritual practices have helped me to change my focus from my body to my soul. I struggled for years with my own life trials and triumphs as I was striving to overcome sugar addiction. My problem with food started young at age 12 weighing 180lbs and mentally I was a mess due to bullying and much ridicule.
My weight loss journey had many up’s and down’s with my battle with food and depression but God healed me once I learned how to pray and developed daily routines as I devoted my life to Him. I was fortunate to find that the only program I needed to lose weight was gonna be a program designed for Christians.
prayer sets you free
The very presence of God in prayer sets you free from thinking about destructive thoughts that make us eat in unhealthy ways. We are taken from focusing only on weight loss to focusing on someone outside of ourselves. Without God we are nothing and can do nothing to heal ourselves, but God can heal us when we bring our needs to Him. As for dieting without applying our Christian faith, by contrast when we eat physical food we are only thinking about satisfying a temporary need and it's our own need.
I find it interesting that God refers to himself as food, don't you? In today's world we see how the process of man is destroying one of our most common foods, BREAD. As a results people are getting sick from high blood sugar and all sorts of digestive problems. The good news is there are many options we just have to seek the Holy Spirit for guidance in this area.
Below you will read how Jesus is using a natural human idea to convey a spiritual thought. He’s saying to us that what bread (or food) is to the body, the Word of God is to the spirit, or the heart, of man. In John 6:51 "I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world."
In Isaiah 55:2 " we read how physical bread leaves us unsatisfied.
Wherefore do ye spend money for [that which is] not bread? and your labor for [that which] satisfies not? Hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye [that which is] good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness."
“Not bread”: This is the “bread of deceit or self-satisfaction” (Prov. 20:17),
scripture for health
In John 6:41 Jesus say's "I am the bread that came down from heaven" The bread, spoken of here, is that bread which is the flesh of Jesus. Did you know he was the Manna that fell from heaven when the people crossing the desert complained and murmured at God, because he said, I am the bread which came down from heaven." Complaining is a big defect of sinners. Complaining and having a negative attitude is part of man’s sinful condition. We grumble about everything like, the weather, standing in lines, gas prices and so on. In the book of Numbers, the Israelites murmured and complained against God until they pushed Him to the point that He threatened to destroy them. Yet God remained faithful to them, as He remains faithful to us, despite His judgment of their sin.
The natural bread feeds your body of flesh. What we learn as Christian in our weight loss program is that God's Bread fills our soul and spirit. The very presence of God in prayer sets you free from thinking about destructive thoughts. We are taken from focusing only on ourselves to focusing on someone outside of ourselves. By contrast when we eat physical food we are only thinking about satisfying a temporary need and it's our own need.
We do not need to over feed our bodies, we need to prayerfully over feed our spirit until our heart (cup) overflows. As we grow in the Holy Spirit we will SEE REAL CHANGE. God will bless you abundantly in ways you could never imagine. Start Growing by consuming the "BREAD OF LIFE" and let God breathe "NEW LIFE" into your bones again!
