But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. Matthew 4:4 (KJV)
Is it possible that we turn to food sometimes to fill a void in our lives and deal with situations only God can resolve? This may be the case. When we feel stressed or overwhelmed, and our hormones become dysregulated, we may feel the urge to turn to food instead of God. Matthew 4:4 reminds us that food alone cannot give us life or satisfy the hunger we feel. God’s Word is the food for our spirit and soul, and we can find supernatural hormonal regulation in God.
Turning to God’s Word instead of turning to food is a strategy for mastering your body and overcoming gluttony.
I designed the following to help you hold God in mind as you aim to master your body and overcome unhealthy habits that sabotage your physical well-being. Print and place in your kitchen, office space, pantry, or anywhere you prefer.
If today was your last day on earth, do you know where you will spend eternity? Are you sure you will make it to heaven? If you are not sure, you need to give your life to Jesus Christ. Please say the prayer below and let me know about it here.
Say this: Heavenly Father,
I acknowledge that I am a sinner. I believe you exist and you sent Jesus to die for me. I receive your love and forgiveness. Reveal yourself to me. I accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior. Amen
Welcome to God’s family!
