God's Weight-Loss Program
by Philip Jones
God has a weight-loss program second to none. His will for you is health, a life not hindered and shortened by unwanted weight gain. His desire for you is to be trim and healthy. The solution for your weight problem is found in His magnificent manual for healthy living, the Holy Bible. In the Word, God comes right to the point and exposes the root cause of most of our problems, that opening just below the nose, the mouth.
Proverbs 18:21a says, "Death and life are in the power of the tongue." So, to attack a deep rooted weight problem you need something very powerful. The Word of God. Hebrews 4:12 says it all, "For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."
