The day I threw away my scale and deleted my calorie app, I was terrified! Although I knew it was the right decision, I was afraid that I’d gain tons of weight. How was I supposed to know what and when to eat?! Still, those things had way too much control on my mind and my activities. I knew it was time to break free and start living the life God designed for me.
Don’t we go searching the internet for diets because we want help and advice on how to get healthy or lose weight? Well, you have a helper in the Holy Spirit. God provided Him to teach, lead, and guide you. You don’t have to go searching when you have what you need inside you. The Holy Spirit empowers you so that you have the wisdom and confidence to care for your body in the way that God intended. Because you are uniquely created, there is no one-size-fits-all way of caring for you. Stop wasting time searching and seeking when you have what you need inside you and in God’s Word.
Action Step: Are you allowing the Holy Spirit to help you care for your body? Have you even considered that He can be your helper in this area of your life? If not, ask Him to help you today. Put aside outside resources – the diet plan, the apps, etc. – for one day and invite the Holy Spirit to guide you throughout your day. When you do, you’ll start to experience peace and freedom that you didn’t know was possible.
