Okay, so it’s now July 1. Time is rolling by. Are you still on your diet? I’m getting closer and closer to that elusive goal weight. Actually I have lowered my goal weight as I really want to get the fat off for good. I talk about dieting being hard. In the natural it is hard. In the natural it does get easier as the pounds come off. Pounds lost is itself a reward and motivates me to keep going. Dieting is a challenge for sure, but by grace it’s possible. I once knew a person who was writing a course for dieters. This person did not need to diet and probably never had to diet. He didn’t know anything about the inner struggles of the dieter. His take was just lose the weight. But as all real dieters know, it is not that simple. There are forces at work to keep us from losing weight, including our own bodies and spiritual forces working against us. Remember Flip Wilson used the saying “the devil made me do it.” He was making fun of it, but he really may have been closer to the truth than he realized. The devil wants to kill, steal, and destroy. He doesn’t want you thin, he wants you fat where your life is destroyed and stolen from you. But through Jesus the devil is defeated and you can go on to weight loss victory.
