Are you ever tempted to overeat? If so, fill up on truth before bringing food to your mouth.
Jesus Christ said, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God” (Matt. 4:4, NKJV).
It’s spiritual truth that satisfies, nourishes, and brings genuine contentment.
A consciousness of spiritual truth is peaceful and calm, rational and reasonable. It makes intelligent decisions that bring good results. It does not seek happiness in something material, like food. It finds happiness in knowing spiritual reality and identifying with it.
In Truth, you are a happy, well-adjusted, satisfied and content immortal being. There is no lack in your Life. It is whole and complete the way God made it and maintains it. There isn’t anything you can consume that improves on what God has already created.
The belief that you need to keep eating beyond what is appropriate is error. The belief that you are a mindless mortal enslaved to appetite is error. The belief that you have no control over your eating decisions is error. The remedy for error is truth!
Know the truth about who you are as a satisfied, happy, and content child of God. Know it before you sit down to eat!
When you fill thought with truth, there is no room for error to occupy.
Fill up on truth and demonstrate your God-given dominion over food.
