Took a little side trip so need to get back to diet rest. First, we saw that Jesus is the place of rest. He said come to Him to find rest. As we look at that in terms of dieting, we see that the diet rest is a place where we quit struggling on our diet. Most people will say that dieting is a struggle. If you do a search on dieting struggles, you will find 561,000 hits. That’s a lot of struggling. So how do we move from struggling to resting? “For we which have believed do enter into rest” (Hebrews 4:3). We enter the rest by right believing—or faith. We receive everything from God by grace through faith. In other words, the grace to diet comes through faith in the word of grace. Instead of struggling, which is saying I can’t do this, we rest in God’s promises that we can do this. “Is anything too hard for the LORD?” (Genesis 18:14). “Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there anything too hard for me?” (Jeremiah 32:27). Anything means anything. That includes helping you on your weight loss journey.
