People ask me, how have I lost 40 lbs.?
It’s not been hard, because the Holy Spirit got my ball rolling.
This is grace!
Grace is not a license to sin because God loves us.
It’s a license not to sin because God kick starts something new.
Everyone needs a motivation to begin the new.
We are creatures of habit.
We tolerate pain until it is unbearable.
This is why Americans tolerate corrupt politicians until they hit their pocket book or bring them to imminent danger.
God brings us to the point of the unbearable to give us disgust for the sin which brought us the unbearable.
I tried through life to lose weight, quite unsuccessfully.
My motivation came when Jesus said, “if you don’t lose the weight, you won’t fulfill your destiny.’”
I’m not sure what He meant but it was enough to get me scared.
These are “God motivations.”
They are the products of “do or die’ scenarios.
Are you ready for some “God motivations?”
Ask and you shall receive!
