I know so many of you are frustrated because you don’t SEE what you long for. You were certain that God called you to exercise your spirit of self-control partnered with your sound mind. But still, things don’t seem to be happening the way you had hoped. What if God is trying to raise your faith rather than help you drop weight? As long as I have known Him He has never proven himself to be my genie in a bottle. He wants to be King of my heart- to know Him as Yahweh, the ONE True God.
When God doesn’t give us a shortcut, or a workaround, it’s because we are equipped and able to forge ahead through the battle in front of us. This word is tested and true:
“Then David said to the Philistine, “You come to me with a sword and with a spear and with a javelin, but I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied…for the battle is the Lord’s, and he will give you into our hand.”- 1 Samuel 17:45,47
All we need is the name Jesus and our belief that His name is higher than any other. Confidence in who God is, is our the right to reign and rule in any land of opposition. All the giants in the land of food, fitness and body assessments must submit to this King.
The last week of the #boldinthesoul challenge has rocked our socks off! If want to see what it looks like to fight the giants in the land of health and fitness, just go to facebook or Instagram and search #boldinthesoul. It’s jaw dropping to see how words, on display for all to see, is setting so many captives free. And it’s so very contagious! Man..we make the gospel so complicated, don’t we? It all boils down to this: God is love. His love overcomes all our fears. Fears are birthed out of lies we believe because of wounds we have received. We combat all fears and heal our wounds with TRUTH! God’s truth! The truth that God IS love and those who believe in His Son Jesus, He calls BELOVED and He clothes them in love. God’s love in us and upon us turns all our mess into His revelation symphony.
Let God’s love tell you who you are in every moment, of every day, especially when you forget and you find yourself losing ground and falling down into the pit of fear. THAT’S being bold in the soul!
