Are You Tired of Struggling With Food?

JOIN WITH US IN BIBLE FOR FOOD.

Hebrews 12:1 ~ …let us throw off everything that hinders…

The Bible for Food Recovery is a group of Christian volunteers who have accepted the seriousness of being disciplined with eating. We have learned through many failures that undisciplined eating opens the door to much unnecessary suffering and pain.

We embrace disciplined eating. We endorse using a food plan as a means to fast. We have given up random and impulsive eating (i.e. “food popping”) because it became a hindrance to working excellently for the Lord.

We are abstinent for Jesus’ sake. We desire to be alert and strong in order to answer God’s call upon our lives. We are each strongly committed to daily prayer, Bible study, evangelism, and discipleship.

Bible for Food is largely a phone ministry. Coming to the weekly phone meetings is the best way to learn about us. This monthly calendar gives the times, topics, phone number, and pin, so that you can explore and see if God might be calling you to join with us.

The phone meetings are open meetings—anyone can listen in and be encouraged. You come on the line muted, and can click on and off the meetings whenever you desire.

Besides the phone meetings, Bible for Food has other services:
• The 90-Day Shepherd program
• Daily food sponsors
• Half-day Bible immersion workshops
• Weekend retreats three times a year

We have two publications that can be viewed and purchased on Amazon: Ninety Days: Encouragement for the Christian Overeater and Think Fast:31 Days Toward a Lifetime of God-Honoring Eating. The “Ninety Days” book is also available in a Spanish edition: Noventa Dias.

Many Christians are being hindered and even placed on the sidelines because of their eating and weight issues. This doesn’t have to be! Please pass along this information about The Bible for Food Recovery. Please keep this ministry in your prayers.


Exodus 34 Commentary by Laura M.
We left off with Moses asking the Lord for a couple of things. He asked the Lord to change His decision and to go with them to the Promised Land. The Lord responded to Moses and said that He would go with them. Moses was successfully acting as intercessor for God’s people much like Jesus does for us.Moses also asked God to show him His glory. In response to this… God explained to Moses that no one can see His face and live, but He described how He would reveal Himself to Moses in another way….more…

LAST CALL FOR BIBLE IMMERSION SUBMISSIONS

Part 1: Tell why you like Bible Immersion and how it has helped you.

Part 2: Give an example of your “Scripture, Thoughts, and Prayer”

 

Below are three edited submissions of what I mean.

 

****Bible Immersion is helping me to start my day in God’s word through prayer, study, meditation, and writing. Because of Bible Immersion I am spending more time with my Lord. It is building my structure and making me stronger in Scripture. I am truly thankful for being taught this way.  May God continue to use all of us to help people and bring Him glory.

Scripture, Thoughts, and Prayer

Matthew 16:24 ~ A disciple is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his master.

  • A servant obeys his master, so stay in your lane!
  •  Do not be afraid of those who kill the body, but cannot kill the soul, rather, be afraid of the one who can destroy both soul and body in hell.
  • {Lord, I understand the enemy comes to steal, kill, and destroy.  He does all that, but he cannot kill my soul.  I am not afraid of him.  But I do fear YOU, Father God.  I am so grateful for your word.  It is making me stronger in you.  Please be my feast today.  In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.}

 

****Bible Immersion has made me see the Scriptures in a new light.  I am understanding the Scriptures more each day.

Scripture, Thoughts, and Prayer

Hebrews 3:6 (NLT) ~ But Christ, as the Son, is in charge of God’s entire house.  And we are God’s house, if we keep our courage and remain confident in our hope in Christ.

  •  I think Paul is talking about keeping our courage in believing in the finished work of Jesus Christ.  We have to stay courageous when the devil tries to use the news and other horrors of this world to make us feel fearful, hopeless, and helpless.
  • God might be saying that He has ALL power, so there is no need to fear.  Put our hope in Him.  We have His power—Holy Spirit Power.  We have the power of prayer, praise, love, and believing!
  • {Dear Father God, Lord Jesus, Holy Spirit, thank you for being the Living God with ALL power!  You are ALL knowing and everywhere ALL the time.  In Jesus Name, I give thanks and pray.  Amen.}

**** Bible Immersion is like opening up a gift each morning with a surprise inside just for me from the Lord!  Knowing I am focusing on hearing from the Lord and asking Him to connect my heart with His heart gives me peace and assurance that I will hear from Him.  I know that He will help me grow spiritually and increase my faith as He gives peace, conviction, and guidance, according to my need!
To do Bible Immersion, I get up, head to my Bible, notebook and Ipad.  I check my email to get the reading and the audio link, and off I go. This new-found, deeper connection with the Lord motivates me to share about Bible Immersion.  It is exciting and hard to keep it to myself. I have taught it to others…even my grandchildren!

Scripture, Thoughts, and Prayer

Genesis 27:42b ~ … Esau is ‘consoling himself’ concerning you (Jacob) by planning to kill you…

  • Oh, how we try to ‘console ourselves’ with food, revenge, etc.
  • Only God can truly console me!
  • {Lord, your words have jumped off the page! You know my present struggle with a situation that has brought bitterness, resentment and the need to forgive. Please allow me to let go of all the bitterness, etc. and only ‘console myself’ with You and Your word.}

We need these ASAP:  Send to Bibleimm@gmail.com
