You Have Everything You Need In You ~ Sunday Devotional

…He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. 1 John 4:4 (NKJV)

You have everything you need in you. 

When you choose to follow Christ, He gifts you with all that you need in this life. 

During all those years that I chased diet after diet to gain peace of mind and confidence in my body, I had everything I needed in me. 

I had Christ, the one who created my body. I had His Holy Spirit, the one who provides peace of mind and confidence in who I am. 

Things of the world tried to pull me in. Messages about how I needed to look a certain way to be liked and accepted convinced me on numerous occasions to sign up for a diet or buy a product that only dragged me farther from my true identity in Christ. 

But God in me was greater. And God in you is greater. He’s greater than all the messages that are bombarding you. He’s greater than all the distractions. He’s greater than your weight loss struggles. 

But He won’t force you. It’s time for you to shut down those outside noises and stop looking and searching and allowing them to draw you in.

You have everything you need in you. 

Christ in you will guide you. He will show you how to care for the body He’s entrusted to you. You have to choose to listen to Him and to your body. Your body is an amazing creation, and it will tell you what’s beneficial – you don’t need a diet to do that. That diet and the person behind it doesn’t know you the way Christ does. 

Save time. Save money. Save yourself frustration and confusion. Stop looking on the outside and turn inward to find everything you need. I’m here to tell you that you can have peace and freedom and feel good in your body without a diet. Now it’s your turn to start living like that too – fit and free!

Happy Sunday!
