HOW MANY OF US HAVE DIETED AND CONQUERED THE FAT DEMON (just kidding, it is not a demon…lol).
Let me tell you my story!
I conquered sugar and white flour. It was a serious challenge to say NO to my favorite, DONUTS! Someone would always bring me a donut. I love donuts! I love sour dough with massive amounts of glaze dripping off so when I dunk it in my coffee it almost falls apart. I love DONNIES DONUTS in Ormond Beach Florida! I love plain donuts. I love chocolate cake donuts with glaze. ALRIGHT…..STOP ALREADY!
I conquered them. I said no and was able to withstand temptation and went from 209 to 203lbs. I felt better, I looked better, my clothes fit better, it was all GOOD!
I said, YES to a donut! That did it, I dropped by guard. I let the donut back in my life. I caved to temptation and now……….I EAT DONUTS AGAIN AND I AM NOT 203!
It can be the same in our walk with Jesus.
We overcome temptation by the power of the Holy Spirit. We are living VICTORIOUS, and then……we allow that one sin to simply have a toe in the door.
Eph. 4:27, and do not give the devil a foothold.
Luke 9:62, But Jesus told him, “Anyone who puts a hand to the plow and then looks back is not fit for the Kingdom of God.”
WE CANNOT LOOK BACK!
WE CANNOT REVERT BACK!
WE CANNOT ALLOW THE LITTLE FOX TO RUIN THE VINE!
Song of Sol. 2:15, Catch for us the foxes, the little foxes that ruin the vineyards, our vineyards that are in bloom.
GUARD YOURSELF AND DO NOT EVEN OPEN A CREVICE TO THE OLD TEMPTATIONS!
I hate starting over something I already conquered. I LOVE TO HATE DONUTS!
CHOOSE NOT TO REVERT TO THE OLD SINS AND LIFESTYLE ONCE YOU HAVE WON. If you did, close the door, get up, and if we could do it once with Jesus, we can do it again.
NEVER GOING BACK!
