GETTING RID OF BELLY FAT

GETTING RID OF BELLY FAT

Okay. Before I give you the skinny of how to lose that pesky belly fat, everything I am about to say is dwarfed by this one Big Truth:

For, as I have often told you before and now tell you again even with tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ.Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their shame. Their mind is set on earthly things.

Philippians 3:18-19

If your mind is on your belly fat more than on God, no one will ever be able to truly help you, you will never be pleased, and you will never be free. Your god is whatever you spend yourself on or whomever you trust with your peace.

Do me a favor..don’t read any further. Take a moment. Shut the distractions down. Get quiet. Ask Yahweh, the One True God, “Is my stomach my god?”

Truth brings freedom.

If your honest answer to that question is “Yes”, then your response to that question must not be tied up to guilt, condemnation or shame. Your response is to kick belly fat in the stomach by kicking belly fat off the throne of your heart!

Okay. Now we can proceed and get to work on what we can do to partner with God to live healthy & whole lives.

QUESTION: What’s the best way to rid belly fat?

ANSWER:

  1. Plenty of rest (6-8 hours a night). Cortisol is your body’s God-given hormone response to stress. It’s your flight or fight hormone. The more stress in your life, the more cortisol in your system. The more cortisol in your system. The more belly fat. Noticed I said 6-8 hours of rest and not sleep. For Americans, sleep is often  “I am laying down, but my mind keeps running.” We need sleep that is deep, restful and restorative. That kind of sleep requires PEACE. And we know where that kind of peace only comes from. So good news friends! If you are not getting adequate rest…repent! Go to your God and break your agreements you are making with worry, anxiety, fear, and unbelief. Celebrate that God is showing you more areas in your life where He is bringing you freedom. Then get in and do the work of dying to your old self and making peace with your new! Even if you have to do it 80x a day to start. Oh…and USE YOUR MOUTH AND VOICE when you repent and break those agreements. The gates of hell fall of their hinges when God’s people speak and proclaim His sovereignty over our lives. Use your words to bring life and peace.
  2. Move your body 4-6 days a week, for at least 30 minutes. because it’s a get to and not a have to. Move because your body gets stronger or stays strong. Move because God wants to do a mighty work through you and the less afraid of discomfort you are, the more of a world changer you are becoming.
  3. Eat more whole foods. Whole foods are foods that will spoil in 3-4 days. This means the foods you primarily eat have LIFE coursing through their cellular makeup and when you bite into them, LIFE is injected into your bloodstream. His word says He sets before us life and death…choose life!
  4. Almost always drink beverages that still allow you to operate heavy machinery. Nuff said!

In the end friends, He is a lot better than your belly fat, to fix your eyes on. He is also a lot more beautiful.

Fix your eyes on Him, set your ears to hear from Him, and walk the road He sets before you each day and bye-bye belly fat.
