I read those words and they just pierced my spirit! I hate the devil. He had tried to destroy my family with drugs and alcohol. I had never thought about the fact that he was trying to kill, steal and destroy my life with food.
Why not food? It worked so well in the garden, of course he would use the same lie. Food, what we need for survival, he has used to deceive us into believing that it will bring comfort to our lives.
Don’t get me wrong, there is no sin in enjoying good food and I have found that you can eat good and lose weight! The enemy tempts us with food and then he tries to get us to starve ourselves to lose weight.
I thank God for the 70 pounds I have lost and I feel the biggest change came when I began to read and study about my body and food that was to nourish my body! Hosea 4:6 says, “My people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge….” That is true in the spirit and the natural. Knowledge is a way of escape.
Until we understand that this is a spiritual problem we will continue to make the diet programs of
the world rich and still stay angry!
The answer is in the Word of God! Study to show yourself approved! The devil is a liar. God’s Word is truth and the truth will set you free.
