I like number 5, "walking off your cravings."  I tend to talk to God at this time too, and get it all out there...whatever is eating me. Plus when I get home i feel good cause I exercised and got outside.

Good morning, having issues sleeping in till my alarm goes off lately. ugh. Decided to get up and do my BSF (Bible Study Fellowship international) lesson. We are studying Romans this year. A question on my lesson was from Romans 2:17-24. What privileges did God give the Jews, and what was there attitude toward there privileges? What specific privileges has He given you and how do you sometimes demonstrate that same attitude?

As it relates to my overeating which is what God and I are working on right now, I walk all over the grace he has given me. I overeat, this is forgivable, there is grace for this process, this bondage, this sin in me, but the real sin is that My heart excuses it.  I have a ... self righteousness? about this freedom in grace that is wrong. I do not honor  God in my actions, but whats worse...in my heart. God looks at the heart. 

I am grateful for this find, I have prayed the Lord will confirm this and help me in this area. I see I cannot change my heart, make myself do what I believe is right, make myself Love God more than overeating, but I can allow more of Him in, to change my heart,  to change me.

There is no reason why anyone with any hurt, habit, or hang up cannot be helped. The Person-God partnership simply needs to be more powerful than any hurt, habit or hangup.

Behind everything you do is a THOUGHT.

Every BEHAVIOR is motivated by a BELIEF.

Every ACTION is prompted by an ATTITUDE.

-----------------------------------------------------------

With respect to behavior, life is about, emotions, beliefs, thinking and control.

"A fool vents all his feelings, But a wise man holds them back."Proverbs 29:11 (Displaced Behaviors)

"Do not be conformed by this world but instead by the renewing of your mind." Romans 12:2 (Direct Behavior)

When you think and empower yourself and surrender control to God, when you Intelligently Delegate Control to God (2 Corinthians 12:9-10),

God returns that control to you with a, “Helper," the Holy Spirit, (John 14:16) a form of Reciprocal Innervation.

You regain control: "the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.

No longer are you subject to corrupted displaced thinking but instead are transformed by the renewing of your mind (Romans 12:2).

This is where science and scripture intertwine, where Christ Driven Behavior brings, values, control, cause, character and purpose driven behavior, the fruits of the spirit Galatians 5:22-23 .

“If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” 2 Corinthians 5:17.

------------------------------------------------------------

Proverbs 29:11 "A fool vents all his feelings, But a wise man holds them back."

Romans 12:2: Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.

2 Corinthians 12-9:“My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”

John 14:16: "He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever—"

Philippians 2:13: "for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure."

Galatians 5:22-23 "the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

Ephesians 4:22-23 "...put away the old person you used to be. Have nothing to do with your old sinful life. It was sinful because of being fooled into following bad desires. Let your minds and hearts be made new."

Life is about finding Purpose. When you have a, "Global Purpose," in life, healthy direct assertive thinking and behavior follow.

Change your thinking, change your life!
