Have you ever heard someone make a statement and think to yourself, “Wow, I could have said that myself!” I had a similar experience while reviewing Why Diets Don’t Work: Food is Not the Problem by Joyce Tilney recently. So many times while reading the book, I thought, “Wow, I could have written that myself!”
In her anointed book, Tilney (the founder of Women of God Ministries) uses God’s word to expose the deceptions that keep so many Christians in bondage to food addiction. Her ultimate goal? She wants you to experience freedom in spirit, soul and body – not using the book as a diet plan, but as a battle plan for total life transformation.
Tilney details her own struggle with weight and food addiction in the book. However, reading five words changed everything for her:
“The devil wants you fat!”
Isn’t that a shocking statement? She writes in the book, “The devil used my fat against me all the time in making me feel guilty and ashamed lead to discouragement and depression.” I could relate to those feelings well from my past and I’m sure many of you can too.
The book explains how the author gained strength from the Lord to start making necessary changes for her health. She obtained new appreciation for her body, affirming that she was created in God’s image. She reminds readers:
“You are unique; there is nobody like you. God thought a lot about you. Every detail of your body, every cell and organ, are the results of God’s thoughts about you. Your personality is His handiwork. God has made an investment in you, giving you gifts and talents to be used for His glory. He has great joy in His heart as He watches over you.”
This book is rich with scriptures that will renew your mind and encourage you as you seek God’s viewpoint on health and healing. By the time you finish the book, you will have renewed hope that you can win the battle with food addiction – just like Joyce did. You will learn about natural and Spiritual ways in which you can experience victory every day.
