Put Your Weight On God

"Trust in the the Lord with all you heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all you ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths"  (Proverbs 3:5-6.)
Do you have a weight problem?  If the answer is yes, then put your weight on  God! I have discovered that God knows what He's doing at all times, in times of extreme illness, chronic health challenges, even obesity. When we sit in a chair, we just sit down in it. We place our whole weight in the chair without giving it a second thought. We trust that the chair will hold our weight. Likewise, we should trust God to hold our weight, carry our burdens and our problems without second guessing His ability to do so.
When we lean, we place part of our weight on God and part of it on ourselves, someone else, or something else. This causes us to worry, snack and eat all the wrong foods.  This prolongs our ability to get lean and lose weight. This proverb teaches us to "lean not on our own understanding." We should not lean, for example, on ungodly weight loss plans and surgeries that could potentially leave us in worst shape than we were in the beginning.  We should lean not on drugs and appetite suppressants that could potentially leave us jittery and cause us to become addicted to them.  We should lean not on quick fixes to cure what it took, in most cases, years to create.   
God may not give you a quick fix to your weight problem, but He will give you a certain promise.  God promises to "direct our paths" when we acknowledge Him "in all our ways."  In acknowledging God and walking in His paths, you might discover it's not what you're eating that's your biggest problem, it's what's eating you!  While you wait on God, put your weight on God. Trust in Him fully. He will carry you through!
If you are trying to lose weight right now, how are you putting your weight on God?
