Spiritual Warfare in Weight Loss, Part 2

My flesh and my heart fail; But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever (Psalm 73:26).”

Have you ever woke up feeling tired? I did this morning. I prayed, exercised, and then sat down at my computer to write as usual. But this morning, the words would not come.

And when that happens, I know there is no point in trying to force it. So I just wrote the following words that were on my heart to the Lord:

My agenda says that I must write Spiritual Warfare Part 2. But what do you say? I need rest and stillness in You. I need times of refreshing in You. I need reminding of who I am in You and who You are to me!”

I’ve learned from experience that whenever I don’t like the output of my life, I need to step back and look at the input. Proverbs 4:23 confirms this approach:

Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life.”

So this leads to the second piece of Spiritual armor:

Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God (Ephesians 6:14-17);”

The breastplate of righteousness means guarding your heart through first affirming your true identity in Jesus Christ:

“For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him (2 Corinthians 5:21).”

Next, you need to remind yourself of who your Lord is to you. This is a living faith that you have. You experience different circumstances and seasons. Some days you feel Spiritually strong and feel as if you can take on the world. Other days, you feel like you can’t win the victory over a brownie!

When that happens, check and control your input through what you allow yourself to see, hear, and meditate upon.

The following songs were the things I used as input to help refresh my Spirit today. By the time I finished listening to all of these, I felt so much stronger! Check them out and then consider what songs and messages refresh you:

Very Same Power by Ricardo Sanchez

Fresh Fire by Anthony Shepherd and the Roar

Spiritual uplifting music and messages are weapons of Spiritual warfare. Use them daily!

Be blessed in health, healing, and wholeness,

P.S. I taught a Webinar recently called ‘Change your Mind, Change your Body’ and we discussed why certain foods hijack your brain and make you more vulnerable to food cravings.

Although the Webinar is over, I created an audio of the content and a summary sheet that you can download Free.

    Thank you Kimberly. I am sitting here in a conference in a bad mood. I don’t ‘feel’ spiritually strong but I am going to guard my mouth and see things how God sees things, not how my bad mood wants me to act.
