Some of us may feel very powerless right now. Powerless over excess in your life, a habit you can’t break, an addiction, or over food. God loves you no matter what the number on the scale is, no matter how the years have changed you, no matter the wrinkles or gray hairs, no matter your image, and no matter what you’ve done. Out of that love, we can access God’s power. God started a good work in you through faith and He will carry it to completion. He won’t abandon you or turn His back on you because you fail, but He is available to help us in our times of need to move towards greater health in Him. I love how Paul described God’s power in 2 Cor. 4:7-9 (NLT): “We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves. We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed.” We may still be pressed, but not crushed! Perplexed but not driven to despair, hunted but not abandoned, knocked down but not out. God’s power is our portion.
