I want to imagine you are remodeling your house. Before you begin on your remodel, would you put some thought into it? Maybe some prayer? Would you ask God to bless your every choice? Would you pray for the finances for the building materials and most importantly, the wisdom to use them properly? With a decision as important as your home, I am certain thoughtful prayer and godly counsel would be paramount.
It is the same when you begin a weight loss journey. You are remodeling your body, soul, and spirit. It takes thought, prayer, and wisdom gleaned from the Lord. You cannot do it alone. You must have the Lord’s wisdom.
“To God belong wisdom and power; counsel and understanding are his,” (Job 12:13).
Start now, if you haven’t already, and consult the Lord on your next move towards a healthy life. Pray for wisdom. Pray for direction that is fruitful and God honoring. We all want a foundation that is sturdy on this weight loss journey. One that is built upon wisdom and power. That only comes from the Lord, not our own understanding. That is the only foundation that will sustain the world.
Pray for wisdom, friend. He will give it. He always does.
“But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere,” (James 3:17).
