Have you been fighting the battle of the bulge? How’s that been going? We really weren’t meant to fight diet battles. “For the battle is the LORD’S” (1 Samuel 17:47). You rest; He fights for you. Actually, He has already fought for you and won. “In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33). Jesus already fought the battle and overcame. All we have to do is stand in Him. “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me” (Galatians 2:20). We still live in the flesh, but we do so now by faith. We still have the problems of dieting such as cravings and emotional highs and lows, but we live a new life because Jesus lives in us. We are not alone thrashing around in the diet madness of life. We are seated with Jesus far above this diet battle and are simply watching Him bring us overcoming victory.
