Feb. 25, 2007 – Let’s look at using the Creative Process for those who feel they are overweight and who want to lose weight. The first thing to know is that if you focus on losing weight, you will attract back having to lose more weight, so get “having to lose weight” out of your mind. It’s the very reason why diets don’t work. Because you are focused on losing weight, you must attract back continually having to lose weight.
The second thing to know is that the condition of being overweight was created through your thought to it. To put it in the most basic terms, if someone is overweight, it came from thinking “fat thoughts,” whether that person was aware of it or not. A person cannot think “thin thoughts” and be fat. It completely defies the law of attraction.
Whether people have been told they have a slow thyroid, a slow metabolism, or their body size is hereditary, these are all disguises for thinking “fat thoughts.” If you accept any of those conditions as applicable to you, and you believe it, it must become your experience, and you will continue to attract being overweight.
Of course Jesus taught that all sin starts in the mind. We first see it, or lust after it (think about it) then we take action (go about getting it or doing it). And there are consequenses to reap. But to say you think fat thoughts and you become fat is absurd. Here is another humanistic, selfish thing the world is trying to teach us…the law of attraction. That is not scriptural but people are living their life by such law. I guess one would think it is an innocent way of improving our lives without having to depend on God or anyone else for that matter. The danger is in believing that we have the power to change, alone from Christ, or the power to attract good things in our lives. All good things come from Him.
Yes, we have the power to choose and take action but it is Christ power working in and through us that actually transforms. It is frustrating to me that the world has yet one more reason to turn to themselves and not to a Holy God!
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Why then would I call myself a loser…because through God’s strength (and only His) I have officially lost 18lbs…I have been changing my eating habits and thanking Him daily for His strength to overcome by using His Word. The only thought of myself was God let me glorify you in this body. Help me please you in my thoughts, in my actions and words, especially my eating!
