I have a confession to make; when I was a little boy I wanted to be Optimus Prime. My favorite part was his transformation from a big ole tractor trailer into a buffed fighting robot warrior. A loud noise, and boom -- his transformation was instant.

Wouldn't it be cool if losing weight was like that? All you would have to do is say auto bot transform and spin around, God would zap you, and all of the weight would disappear. But it doesn’t happen that way.

Instead God gives you the endurance to run against troops and leap over walls. That’s what King David discovered. God delivered him from King Saul, who had been trying to kill him for years, and that's what devil is trying to do us. He's trying to kill us by keep us trapped in unhealthy living.

Evening though David had defeated Goliath and God had anointed him King over Israel, he still had to fight battles before he could claim what was his. It's the same with us. We have to defeat our Goliath! The sweets, fried foods, the sodas, processed foods, lack of determination, laziness, etc. We are anointed as kings and queens over healthy living (our Israel).

A strong, healthy body is yours. But you will have to fight for it.
God has strengthened you with the endurance to run against troops, like your habits of the past.

The way you can run with endurance is by giving yourself a vision of what you are running toward, keeping a clear picture of your future healthy self in your mind’s eye at all times.

God has given you the ability to leap over walls, like your fears and limiting beliefs.

For example, you might have the fear of failure to leap over. But if you consider failure as a learning opportunity to grow, then you never fail.

Or you might have a fear of success. You might fear if you lost weight, you wouldn't fit in with family or friends anymore.

But leap over that fear by recognizing that every person is responsible for him or herself. The best thing you can do for them is to be a good example and demonstrate that there is a better way to live.

Today, recognize that you have extraordinary abilities in God through Christ. Receive them every morning by faith and use them in your daily decisions.

You may not be a Transformer, Wonder Woman or Superman, but you will get the weight loss results you want in due season!
