Weight Loss and Self-control
Be the first to leave a comment.
All things are possible to me. I am a believer. I can do all things through the anointing, the burden removing, yoke destroying power of God. I am transformed by the Word of God. My body is the temple of the Holy Spirit Who lives in me. I was bought by the blood and death of Jesus on the Cross. I honor God and bring glory to God through my body. Like a boxer I handle my body roughly and with discipline. I will not be mastered by my body, but rather I master my body to bring glory to God. The Spirit of the Lord is in me and brings me liberty. I am free from the bondage of fleshly desires. I present my body as a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable, pleasing to God. This is my reasonable service and worship to God. I prove and demonstrate God's will by managing my body correctly. Patience is completing and perfecting me so that I lack nothing. My God is not my stomach. My mind is not on earthly things. I glorify God in my eating and drinking. God is for me and He is freely giving me every good thing. I love God with all of my heart, mind, and strength. I overwhelmingly conqueror through Jesus.
This confession was based on the following verses:
- Mark 9:23 (NASB) 23 And Jesus said to him, " 'If You can?' All things are possible to him who believes."
- Philippians 4:13 (KJV) 13 I can do all things through Christ (the anointed one and his anointing) which strengtheneth me.
- 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 (AMP) 19 Do you not know that your body is the temple (the very sanctuary) of the Holy Spirit Who lives within you, Whom you have received [as a Gift] from God? You are not your own, 20 You were bought with a price [purchased with a preciousness and paid for, made His own]. So then, honor God and bring glory to Him in your body.
- 1 Corinthians 9:27 (AMP) 27 But [like a boxer] I buffet my body [handle it roughly, discipline it by hardships] and subdue it, for fear that after proclaiming to others the Gospel and things pertaining to it, I myself should become unfit [not stand the test, be unapproved and rejected as a counterfeit].
- 1 Corinthians 6:12 (NASB) 12 All things are lawful for me, but not all things are profitable. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be mastered by anything.
- 2 Corinthians 3:17 (NASB) 17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
- Romans 12:1-2 (AMP) 1 I APPEAL to you therefore, brethren, and beg of you in view of [all] the mercies of God, to make a decisive dedication of your bodies [presenting all your members and faculties] as a living sacrifice, holy (devoted, consecrated) and well pleasing to God, which is your reasonable (rational, intelligent) service and spiritual worship. 2 Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you].
- James 1:4 (NASB) 4 And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
- Philippians 3:18-19 (NIV) 18 For, as I have often told you before and now say again even with tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ. 19 Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their shame. Their mind is on earthly things.
- 1 Corinthians 10:31 (NASB) 31 Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
- Romans 8:31-32 (NASB) 31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us?
32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things?
- Mark 12:29-30 (KJV) 29 And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: 30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
- Romans 8:37 (NASB) 37 But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us
