WEIGHT - IT'S NOT JUST A PHYSCIAL ISSUE!
Updated: Oct 3, 2022
Weight isn't just a physical thing! We are spirit, soul, and body and weight can be carried in all of these areas! Any part of us that is out of balance impacts all the other parts. God wants us whole in all areas!
"And may the God of peace Himself sanctify you through and through [separate you from profane things, make you pure and wholly consecrated to God]; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved sound and complete [and found] blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah). Faithful is He Who is calling you [to Himself] and utterly trustworthy, and He will also do it [fulfill His call by hallowing and keeping you]." (1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 AMPC)
I also like how The Message version says this:
"May God himself, the God who makes everything holy and whole, make you holy and whole, put you together—spirit, soul, and body—and keep you fit for the coming of our Master, Jesus Christ. The One who called you is completely dependable. If he said it, he’ll do it!" (1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 MSG)
We can be made holy and whole and kept fit by God. I really like that God will, "Keep you fit!" I'm so thankful that it doesn't just depend on us! We have supernatural help with any weight, whether its spiritual, mental, emotional, or physical, available to us. And the good news is that no weight is bigger than God!
No matter what you're going through:
"Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination! He will outdo them all, for his miraculous power constantly energizes you." (Ephesians 3:20 TPT)
Give Him the weights in your life and rest. He will show you how to handle what needs to be handled and how to let go of what needs to be released. His Word promises that!
"Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully." (1 Peter 5:7 AMPC)
Cast those weights on Hin knowing that He will take them and handle them. Cast them, then rest in the security that God's got this, and He's got you! Nothing, and no one, can take you out of His hands.
"And I give them eternal life, and they shall never lose it or perish throughout the ages. [To all eternity they shall never by any means be destroyed.] And no one is able to snatch them out of My hand. My Father, Who has given them to Me, is greater and mightier than all [else]; and no one is able to snatch [them] out of the Father's hand." (John 10:28-29 AMPC)
