Now that you are in the 8 Day Really Nourish Yourself Devo Day 4: Write and Visualize, the world is probably starting to look very different to you now! You’ve purposed in your heart not to defile yourself with delicacies. You’ve renewed your mind about what exactly food is. The deception in what is available around you to eat has been uncovered. Thanks be to God!
Food Sovereignty: This is Your Liberation!
This is liberation for you, but at first may feel like some kind of bondage. God promised us in His word that He will satisfy us with long life. Many people live long by taking 5-10 prescription medications every day, being in and out of hospitals, and living in fear of disease. If you consider that “satisfying”, then stop reading right here and go back to your Facebook scrolling! Here’s the truth: YOU ARE FREE from all that when you honor God at your mouth gate. We can pray for healing from food-related diseases, but James 2:17 tells us that faith without works is dead, so here’s where the work comes in.
8 Day Really Nourish Yourself Devo Day 4: Write and Visualize – but Why?
In every life pursuit, visualizing and writing your goals down is a crucial step. In most cases, the difference between success and failure lies in whether this step was taken or foregone. Without revelation, people cast of restraint says Proverbs 29:18. Revelation is what God shows us, its His vision for us. If you can see it, you can achieve it!
A vision board is a great way to visualize your goals. I’m sure there’s an app for this, but I highly recommend a simple cork board on the wall. I always kept mine right near my bed, so it was one of the first things I laid eyes on every morning. You can find images of people in magazines and stick your face on them. Find people doing things you want to do, like running or swimming, or people with body shapes you are aiming for.
Another thing I did was I changed the body shape on my Bitmoji. When I first made my Bitmoji avatar, she was a thick empress, but sometime in early 2015, she dropped 50 lbs. I changed her to a slim body type. I sat writing the first draft of this devotional in April 2016 having lost 45 lbs in size 8 skinny jeans. This is powerful!
8 Day Really Nourish Yourself Devo Day 4: Write and Visualize – How
Nick Zizi, a great motivational speaker I learned about recently, said of goal setting “If you can think it, ink it”. This is biblical wisdom. In Habakkuk 2:2, God tells His prophet to “Write the revelation down and make it plain so that a herald will run with it”. Here again, I’m sure there’s an app for writing goals, but I recommend pen and paper – assuming you don’t have stone tablets handy like Habakkuk did.
I put this question to Nick Zizi on a Periscope broadcast once. He talked about some studies that have shown that writing on paper for this purpose is more effective. Get a journal to keep track of your food life scriptures, changes and choices. Use it also to plan ahead and dream big about the rewards you can reap along your new journey.
