“His divine power has given us everything we need for life…” (2 Peter 1:3). God has already through the finished work of Jesus given us all things we need to get through life. Already! That means we have to appropriate it some way if we are not already experiencing what we need. This includes dieting as well. That means God has given each believer divine power to accomplish what we need to do and in this case—loss weight. The word Peter uses here for power is the same word we get dynamite from. It means miracle-working power. I know some of you are thinking it would take a miracle for me to lose weight. Well, you are most fortunate and blessed. God’s miracle working power is already in you ready to burst forth. You already have the power within you to complete the weight loss journey successfully. Since that power is always available you can call on it in faith to help you when you need it. When you reach for a cookie or a donut in the break room then call on the power of God to resist that knowing it won’t help you lose the weight you want and need to lose. Call on the name of the Lord and He will save you from all diet obstacles.
