We have been talking about the diet rest. By the way, dieting is almost a metaphor for living in general. What applies here to dieting applies to life. So this is a duel focus where here we are primarily talking about dieting. I think if you can overcome in the dieting realm, you can overcome in any area of your life. For overweight and obese people, dieting is a major struggle. I would say that most people in this category just quit trying. Actually that is what resting is—quit trying to do something that is impossible for you to do in your own strength and will power. The flesh is weak. It is hard to overcome anything by trying to do so in the flesh. The flesh is that part of you that attempts to do things apart from God’s help. It involves your thinking, willing, and emotional parts of you that are mostly anti-diet.
