God will sometimes HEAL us miraculously in an instant, but many times He leads us to something that He wants us to do, or stop doing. That was the case for co-founder of "Altered Appetite" Leah Cromer. Take a moment to watch this short video of her POWERFUL testimony!
I've been working in Freedom Ministry for many years but had never thought of DELIVERANCE from FOOD ADDICTION until I met Doug Cromer. If you have ever struggled with your weight, or felt the Holy Spirit moving in your heart about fasting and prayer to overcome food addiction, THIS is your confirmation!
"This verse presents an area called the transition zone.
Think about the scene: Behind you is a door which the Lord has closed. You know you cannot go back. There is nothing to go back to. In front of you stands a door to new opportunities, new challenges, new ministry, new spheres of influence, a whole new future. In this transition zone in which you find yourself, the door to the past is sealed shut, but the door to the future has not yet opened. You know it is time to progress. There are all kinds of indications that the new door WILL OPEN, but so far you are at a stand still.
How freeing it is to truly CAST ALL YOUR CARE onto the LORD.
To be in that place of complete and total TRUST that whatever the obstacle stands before us, God has it already handled and we need only BE AT PEACE.
This is easier said than done though, isn't it?
Today's devotional reminds me of the Psalms and all the times David was up against insurmountable odds. In the natural it looked hopeless time and time again.
However what I've learned from reading about David, and all the giants that I myself have been up against is this: GOD ALWAYS CAME THROUGH.
He is faithful, and we can rest in the knowledge that although we may not be able to understand what's happening in the midst of the storm...He is still on the THRONE.
