Women, Food, and the First Fall by Sheri Rose Shepherd
"Then the LORD God said to the woman,"What is this you have done?" The woman said, "The serpent deceived me, and I ate." — Genesis 3:13
Nothing tastes better than the victory of walking away from temptation. I'm praying for all of us to find great joy in a new way of eating and digesting truth. It's not surprising that food is such a big issue with women if you look at the first fall of man. It was a woman who had a craving and took the bait of Satan--and ate from a food God asked her not to eat. Too many times we set ourselves up to fall. I'm praying in Jesus' name that this time we will stay away from the things that tempt us to break our fast, so we will NOT fall. No food is worth the fall! When you have a craving today, I want you to call out to Christ to give you a craving for Him. I promise you it is worth laying down what you want in order to do the will of God.
I am praying and believing God for a beautiful break-through today as we discover the lies we've believed and the deceptions we allowed to creep into our hearts and our kitchens. If you are ready for real truth and more transformation from the inside out, watch the video below and let's laugh and learn to reject lies and return to the TRUTH!
God's Letter to You
I believe if The Lord was going to write you a personal letter about battles this life brings it may read like this....
My Princess Warrior,
Your inward battles, My Beloved, do not mean that you are weak. These battles exist because you are My warrior and My Spirit is inside of you fighting to help you do what is right. My Spirit can overcome any struggle, and My power is greater than any problem that you are facing right now. Do not beat yourself up, My Beloved. There will always be an inward battle. However I am bigger than your battle and I will give you victory, because My spirit lives in you. I know how hard it is for you to live a righteous life, that is why I sent My Son, Jesus. I don't want you to beat yourself up any longer for your inward battles. I want you to learn to surrender to My voice of conviction and correction, then free yourself by confessing your sin to Me. When you are weak call to Me and let Me be your strength. I am the only one who can carry you when you feel like you cannot carry on. I am here to help you become the woman you long to be and who I created you to be. We will work through this together and I will never give up on you no matter how long it takes for you to overcome your battle and surrender to Me.
Your Faithful Father
My Prayer for You
I pray that Your Holy Spirit would reveal any lies from the enemy that Your daughter has believed. I pray that You would give her the mind of Christ that she would be able to discern the deception of the enemy. Give her a craving for truth. Give her a craving for the food that You have prepared for her to eat. Give her the fruit of the Spirit of self-control. In your name, Jesus, Amen.
Treasure of Truth
Inward battles don't mean you're weak... you're a Warrior fighting to do what is RIGHT!
