“Do not destroy the work of God for the sake of food.” Romans 14:20a
Yesterday as I was continuing to read Romans, this verse jumped off the page at me. Literally before I ate anything yesterday, all I kept hearing was this verse over and over again “don’t destroy the work of God for the sake of food.” Is that not powerful?
If you’re trying to lose weight, before eating, say this verse. It will help you make better decisions. Allow God to transform your habits and don’t destroy His mighty work in your life for the sake of food.
Dear Heavenly Father, we thank You that Your Word is truth and meets us right where we’re at. I’m overwhelmed when I think that You are speaking directly to us! God, we confess there are times that we do destroy what You’re doing in our lives for something so meaningless as food. Please forgive our sin and change our habits. May we not go against Your will for something that is less satisfying in the long run. May we keep pressing on for You! We ask again that You make us healthy and thin for Your glory. We praise You and thank You. In Jesus’ Name, AMEN!
