My mom had so many sayings. Although she has been dead for years, I can still hear her voice. Last night was one of those times. I was feeling tempted to overeat and lamenting to myself about the struggle of doing right and not seeing any results.
All of a sudden I heard that still small voice say, "The devil is liar, I will not go back".
I knew that voice, I recognized that conviction. That was the Spirit of God within me which sustains me. '
He is the reason why I live breathe and have my being in Him. Nothing and no one has any power over me. No food or emotion has reign over my body and soul.
This earthen vessel in which my spirit dwells is in the hands of The Potter, the everliving God, the creator of the universe, my Father.
I knew then that my course was set and that failure and giving up was not an option. Whenever I am close to victory, the devil gets busy trying to play games with my mind and emotions.
Enough is enough, Victory is Mine, In Jesus Name!
