diet devo day twenty-four

"Righteousness goes as a herald before him, preparing the way for his steps." Psalm 85:13
Jesus fasted for 40 days in the wilderness, and He was sustained by His faith.
The devil came to Him and tried to tempt Him with bread,
but he refused to give in.
This is a good image for us to remember when we are dieting.
Often we feel we cannot go on when we miss just one meal.
Christ proved to us that even after missing meals for 40 days,
there is still a source of strength other than food.
That source is God,
and His strength is available to anyone who will ask for it.
Let us remember to follow in the steps of Jesus Christ and
lean on our heavenly Father whenever we feel weak or tempted.

Today's thought:
I am facing nothing that Christ did not face before me.

It's so hard to diet...so many things to tempt us every day. The devil is all around, isn't he?

Thanks again for posting these devotionals Annie. I really enjoy them and appreciate the time you take to post them for us all.

Hugs!
