10 Reasons to start your year with a faith-based cleanse
You’ve tried it your way in the past and it didn’t work.
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. Romans 12:2
Let’s cut right to the chase. How many times have you tried and failed over the past few decades? Submitting your health totally to God starting with a faith-based cleanse could be the catalyst you need to finally achieve your goals. But it begins with a renewed MIND and the realization that you must give God every single area of your life - withholding nothing.
Changing your life requires changing EVERYTHING
"What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead." James 2:14, 17
As the saying goes, if you want something different you must do what? Something different! Leave no stone unturned. Examine every part of your life and decide what’s gotta go. If your faith in God is strong but your health is out of whack, that’s proof its an area of your life where God does not have dominion. And He wants it. He needs to SEE you believe by evidence of how you move in that direction. The two must work together. "So wait a minute God, you mean all my faith means nothing if I don’t apply action?” Pretty much - that’s exactly what He’s saying.
Faith gives power you just don’t have on your own.
“But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” 2 Corinthians 12:9
Quickly and simply, you’re workin too hard sis. That’s why you keep falling short of the goal. Take HIS yoke. It’s easy and His burden is light. The weaker you are on your own, the stronger you can be through Christ.
You finally realize you’re a food addict and need a power greater than yourself to overcome. “
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Ephesians 6:12
I’m not sure you realize this, but your health is WARFARE. The enemy only comes for three reasons: to steal, to kill, and to destroy. Period. You absolutely cannot fight this battle alone and expect to be victorious.
You’ve tried regular programs in the past but couldn’t be consistent. “
You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.” 1 John 4:4
As the gospel song goes, GOD is the plug. The key is He must actually be IN you, in EVERY single area of your life including your physical health and health choices. Success in your health journey requires you to stay connected to God and HE will provide the conviction necessary for you to be consistent.
God is telling you to do it.
Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.” 1 Corinthians 10:31
Real and lasting lifestyle change for the believer must be a CONVICTION if it's going to stick. You must accept that there’s absolutely NO area of our lives that should be off limits to God. You can be in rebellion against God in your diet just as easily as you can a sexual sin. Your body is a temple for the Holy Spirit to reside in, not a trash can.
Your faith is low and you’re struggling Spiritually. “
These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
Listen, I get it. You’ve got a lot going on. Much bigger problems than your diet. But did you know that getting control of your health can actually heal other areas of your life? It gives you discipline, strength of mind, and the literal power of God healing not just your body, but your spirit! How we do one thing is often how we do everything. Submit to God in this area and watch Him work throughout your life.
You’re ready to test God where your weight loss is concerned.
“Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.” Psalm 34:8
God is GOOD. And He desires GOOD things for His children. What could you do for God if you had total restoration where your health is concerned? What ministry could you be more active in? How could you inspire others in your family, your community, across the globe?
You realize now that structure, rooted in faith, is the missing piece.
“For God is not a God of disorder but of peace--as in all the congregations of the Lord's people.” 1 Corinthians 14:33
God desires us to follow His blueprint in all areas of our lives. And the blueprint for our diets is clearly outlined in His word if we hope for optimal health free of disease.
Failure isn’t an option at this point and you’re ready to try anything to get healthy. “
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” Matthew 6:33
It all starts with the right foundation. Every single move we make must begin with the right foundation. Build your health on the solid rock of Christ and you will be unmovable.
