Yesterday we saw Jesus as the teacher. He will help us through the technicalities of dieting and of overcoming every obstacle. Back to Matthew 11:29: “Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” Next, look at “gentle and lowly of heart.” Another word might be meek and humble in heart. Neither of these words are about behavior but about a grace of the soul. It regulates emotions and feeling. It isn’t weakness and timidity, but an inner strength knowing that all of the power of God is available to us. It is saying I can’t do it, but with Jesus I can to all things. When emotions begin to sabotage your diet, that inner strength begins to rise up big in your heart and you overcome the obstacle. The more we see Jesus, the more we become like Him.
