Today is a travel day. We have been in St. Augustine or just north of it for a week. It’s next door to Golf Hall of Fame. You can go in and walk the mile loop around the lake in the center of the village. There haven’t been many stores around the lake for some time. Do like to go to Caddy Shack for dinner.
Trips are an obstacle to dieting. But we already have learned that we are conquerors over trip obstacles. We are what the Bible—the Word—says we are. It’s more than just what we think, it’s what we believe. It’s what’s in our heart. Whatever is in our heart comes out our mouth. Speaking the promises ensures they are indelibly entrenched in our heart.
“Let’s keep a firm grip on the promises that keep us going. He always keeps his word” (Hebrews 10:23 MSG). It’s the Word that has the power to help us overcome. Jesus is the Word.
“So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it” (Isaiah 55:11 NKJV). Speak the promises. Send forth the Word to overcome even in dieting.
