Dodging The Draft - Original Exodus Out of Egypt - Audio Lesson 6
Your journey to lose excess weight is parallel to the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt, and God is calling you to abandon the world and follow Him through the desert—which breeds devotion—to the Promised Land of permanent freedom and the hope of an eternal relationship with God Almighty.
Do you feel like you have tried everything in your effort to lose weight? Gwen Shamblin Lara has been there, too! “Right foods”, exercise programs, reliable and even “unreliable” techniques have only made the struggle more difficult … why? What if the problem is a “crush” on food? Maybe the difficulty comes from a misplaced passion for whatever stronghold is causing you pain, discomfort, problems at work, discord in your relationships, or a feeling that you are separated from the God who created you.
The irony is that the food enslaved us, and we have looked to everything except a totally sold-out Love for God to cure what ails us. We feel as though God has deserted us … but in fact, God is waiting for our correct response. He is not far off, nor has He abandoned us completely; however, God knows that the only way out of the pain of idolatry is a wholehearted response of Love from each of us! Not only that, but God goes to great lengths to make a clear distinction between Himself and the false gods that fill the earth.
This audio lesson is a POWERFUL depiction of the mighty acts of God in bringing the Israelites out of Egypt in a moving way that reinforces how God is moving that way again in your life today, if you will cry out and give Him your whole heart in total love and obedience!
