His Grace Is Sufficient

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."

The mouth, unchecked, can do much damage to a person's inner image by creating destructive habits, like overeating.

Below I have created a block of statements based on Philippians 4:13. You will speak this scripture-based declaration out loud before each meal.

Here is your faith declaration to speak and declare before each meal:

Weight-Loss Declaration

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me, therefore I eat correctly and moderately. I refuse to overeat. I command you body and soul in Jesus’ name to get in line with God’s Word and eat moderately. I command you body in Jesus’ name to be healthy, slim and trim. I command all unnecessary weight to leave me now. I command all desires to overeat and all desires to eat improper foods to leave me now. I’m constantly filled with great faith and explosive expectancy that I have lost all unnecessary weight and I look great. My desire to eat right and live right is increasing day by day. My steps are ordered by the Lord and everything I do is inspired by the Holy Spirit. Thank you God for giving me the grace to lose weight and live a holy and healthy life pleasing to you.

Immediately after you speak this faith declaration you will thank God for giving you victory concerning your eating habits. Thanking God with sincerity releases your faith in God to cause your faith declaration to come to pass. Then, thank God the Father for your food and ask God the Father in Jesus' name to bless your food and go ahead and eat.

And of course, make sure your doctor sanctions your after eating exercise.

If you will do this consistently and in faith and be patient, you will lose unwanted pounds. Why am I so sure? Because God and His Word never fails. Enjoy your new and healthy life!

Scriptures used: Philippians 4:13; Psalm 37:23; 2 Corinthians 9:8.

Want Mountain Moving Faith?

The Lord gave the following words to a Christian to speak out loud. The Lord encouraged the Christian to declare these words often until they became a reality in his heart. And of course the more time you spend declaring these powerful words,the quicker the results.

"There is no lack of faith with me. If I were to come to the end of my faith, then the Father gives me the very faith of Christ and it is impossible for me not to believe."

Thank God for Everything?
Good and Bad?

I had been trusting in many of God's promises for losing weight, healing, renewed youth, wisdom, success in life, financial prosperity, victory over sin, peace, a Christian spouse, confidence, great faith in God's word, correct eating habits, power to heal the sick, power to successfully witness to the lost as well as a myriad of other things, but the manifestation of the promises of God coming to pass in my life seemed very slow, very slow indeed.

One day I asked God what would be the most holy, righteous and quickest way to see God's promises come to pass in my life. In other words, what was the quickest way to get rid of the doubt and unbelief in my heart so God's promises would manifest and become a reality in my life. I believe He gave me the answer.

The Lord had me read Merlin Carother's book Prison to Praise. In this anointed book I learned from Romans 8:28 and Ephesians 5:20 that through thanking and praising God for both good and bad things in our lives we release the power and ability of God to change and perfect those things (Psalm 138:8) in our lives for the better, including getting rid of doubt and unbelief.

It might sound stupid, even blasphemous for you to thank God for the bad things (sickness, fear, poverty, being overweight, bondage to sin etc.) that happen in your life, but God is sovereign and nothing happens in your life unless He gives the okay. So why does He allow bad things in your life? He loves you and has a purpose for your life and He allows good and seemingly bad things in your life to help fulfill His will for your glorious destiny. He tells you in 3 John 2 He wants you to "prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth."

Again, I emphasize that when you thank and praise God for both good and bad things then His power is released to perfect those things in your life. Here is a testimony I will share with you to help you understand how this works:

A very distraught soldier came to Merlin Carothers when Merlin was still a chaplain in the Army. Crying, the soldier said his wife wanted to divorce him. Chaplain Carothers had the soldier kneel with him in prayer and thank God his wife wanted to divorce him. Shortly afterwards, the soldier got a phone call from his wife and she apologized and said she was not going to divorce him. Praise the Lord for His faithfulness to transform the worst situations into something beautiful.

Here is a testimony of my own. One day after learning about the power of thanking and praising God for both the good and bad things in my life, my computer would not connect with the internet and my printer would not work. Instead of grumbling and complaining (God hates grumbling and complaining), I lifted my hands and thanked God that my computer would not connect to the internet and that my printer would not work. What happened? My computer connected to the internet and my printer started spitting out copies it would not print before. God specializes in miracles.

So start thanking and praising the Lord for both the good and bad things in your life. God is faithful and He will begin immediately to release His power and ability in your life to perfect those areas in your life that need perfecting. God bless you as you refuse to grumble and complain, but give praise and thanksgiving to a loving and faithful God.

Send me, Philip, your testimonies to Thank you.
