This morning after my prayer time, God revealed a remarkable thing to me.
He told me the true meaning of the name “Take Back Your Temple.”
God gave me the name about a year after I started my own Christian weight loss journey.
At the time, I thought of the name as just a challenge to people of faith to take back their bodies, health, and lives.
But He told me that I was wrong. It was much more than that.
“Take Back Your Temple” is a prayer.
The name is meant as an individual’s cry unto Him. It is asking God to take control of your body and your life so He can use them for His purpose and agenda.
It is the submission of your will to His will. You recognize that God loves you and His plans for you are better than you have for yourself.
You don’t live out of your own strength. You live from His.
- If you are struggling with your weight right now, then simply ask God to: “Take Back Your Temple.”
- If you are struggling with destructive habits, simply pray to the Lord in the midst of it: “Take Back Your Temple.”
- If you are struggling with fear, doubt, depression, stress, worry, or anxiety then invite God into the situation: “Take Back Your Temple.”
I believe that if you pray that simple, powerful four-word prayer with a sincere heart and persistence, then it will be answered.
It will be answered based on God’s word that our bodies are His temples, and we therefore are to glorify Him in our bodies and in our spirits (1 Corinthians 6:19-20).
May you take this message to heart, apply it in your own life, and forever be blessed!
