stop binge eating with faith in God and prayer
Do you feel find yourself binge eating after 7pm and binge eating seems to be controlling you? Well I want to share how my faith in God's word gives us encouragement and determination to keep the faith and develop a stronger mindset! When you focus on spiritual insight you learn how God's wisdom helps to control your binge eating habits so that God's transforming power creates a right spirit in YOU! It's time to think...
In Psalm 61:1-2 We see the prayer of David asking God to hear his prayer. His heart is calling out to God even though he is feeling doubtful and desperate. We see David is turning to the Lord asking Him to lead him to higher ground because he does not want to stay stuck feeling lowly.
Faith means as Christians we need to believe that if we keep asking for strength we will be filled with the POWER of the Holy Spirit to think differently. Soon we will learn better options and choices that make more sense then the way we think in the midst of our struggle to control eating.
control eating quotes from the bible
When you are determined to take your binge eating problem to God in prayer you first need to humbly ask God to help you find out why you keep losing ground when you give into temptation even though you know what the consequences will be. Believe that God has a way of escape for you. Temptation doesn’t become sin until you agree with it, so the way of resistance is the way of escape.
If you have family members or friends that seem to tempt you then you need to be prepared to have something healthy to replace it or have a plan in place to know what to do in advance. This is something you may want to pray about. If you feel guilty for not eating like everyone else then you need to put your priorities into perspective and think about what God wants for you and know he wants the best for you.
Sometimes we feel tempted to eat by others because they have addictions of their own and they want you to join them. So think about if they have any interest in taking care of their health. If they have a remark that makes you feel funny for not eating the junk food then just let it go and remember the truth of how good you will feel by staying away from food that makes you lose control.
Resisting temptation is impossible if we keep food around that we know we have a hard time to control. So you may have to stop bringing certain foods into the house that you cannot get off your mind. Start talking to God about it and He will bless you with wisdom and inner-peace.
In 1 Corinthians 10:13 we read that no temptation has overtaken you expect such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.
The truth is when we lose control over food we end up suffering in countless ways and it is only by praying to God and making a daily action plan to examine our thought process that we can learn by our mistakes.
Learn how God's wisdom helps control binge eating and weight loss
As Christians we know at some point in life we need to create boundaries to create a safe zone and eat with peace of mind. We make the choice to die to our own selfish desires and trust in the guidance of the Holy Spirit to create new ways of eating in any given situation. Remember God sacrificed his life for you and we can come to the table of God's grace and present to God our willingness to sacrifice our desire for food so that we have the blessing to be making choices that are pleasing and acceptable in His sight.
Listen to this brief teaching to stop binge eating by not letting yourself be controlled by your emotions and putting your faith in action.
The more we wait to control binge eating, the more we miss out on God's gift of wisdom. God truly does not want anything to control us, but he wants our actions to be because of our commitment to Him. God is the good shepherd and we are to follow His ways. We have a way of keeping our eyes are stuck on the flesh (the food, the wants and our self-pity) and until we make a decision to seek after God in prayer we miss the opportunity of healing.Why? Because God wants us to get REAL with Him!
