In the midst of studying 3 “diet” and “nutrition” books (including the “Spark”). The more I study alongside my Bible, the more I see how much God has His almighty hand in our struggles to overcome whatever addiction we are battling. For us, it is food. God gently reminds us that we are to put our trust and reliance in Him. The more we battle food, the desire to exercise, and the like in our own hands, we will continue to fail. Relaying on God for our strength in EVERY circumstance makes us victorious!
If you’d like specific scriptures that can help you walk through those temptations, whatever they may be, let me know – have compiled a list!
O gracious and mighty God, please strengthen me and help me not stumble in my time of temptation. In the name of the One who conquered temptation and sin, Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen.
