So we enter the diet rest by faith. That doesn’t sound so hard. However, it must be hard because few find this place of rest from the struggles of dieting. Most people either keep on struggling—doing battle—or they quit altogether. Faith is simply trusting that what God says is true and best for us. It is believing that because Christ is in me I can do all things. All means all. That means I can diet. I can diet through Christ who strengthens me. He gives me the power to do it. “I can” carries the meaning that I have the ability or I have the might and physical strength to do it and “strengthens” means I have the dynamite power of God to do it. I can’t do it in myself, but I can do it through Christ who is in me giving me the power to do the diet. In myself I have no power or strength. That’s where most people live. But Christ in you is the grace sufficient for overcoming the battle of the bulge.
