  • Weigh Down Revolution
    Ending the Cycle by Stopping the Gimmicks
    God is using Weigh Down to bring His people back home. But it takes focus on that one thing, staying in His boundaries of hunger and fullness. The people who are losing weight are dropping the distractions, stopping the dieting and ending the gimmicks. They are waiting for true stomach hunger, and when it comes, they are getting what God is leading—no more gimmicks with the food or dieting...

Never Alone Again

Imagine when you have a test. Let’s say it is dying to the praise of men tonight or to pride or lust. Let’s say it is dying to eating food tonight or being submissive to your husband tonight or loving someone hard to love. Whatever you struggle with, bring it to mind now. Imagine having to die—giving up your will, your body, your soul, your dreams, whatever it is—in this test. You have always been alone. You try to do this alone...

The Night Lie, Part II

No More Dieting!

Praise God that you will follow His will and eat regular foods for the rest of your life. When you deny God and what He has programmed inside of you, you will become ravenous again and lustful for food.

Flying Above the Scales

God is doing something new for those who are coming to Him once again… His Spirit is pouring down and providing a breakthrough. Let us start with laying down the scales—get a beginning number, but just use the scales occasionally because the trend that we are measuring is the dependency on God. It is not about a number…it is about getting that internal control and Connection to God so that you are guided and are flying above the scales...
