[12:59 a.m.] I am up way later than I should be. I binge watched about 4 hours of Into The Badlands finishing season 2, and ate way too much. And all I can think about is that it has been nearly fifty years since I have been waiting to do the works of my Father in Heaven. I prayed for this before I even understood what I was asking. Now, I am supposed to be one obedient act to Holy Spirit away from it breaking forth everywhere I go, to everyone I meet. What is this act of obedience supposed to be? When will this thing finally begin?
[8:15 a.m.] (296.0) After an evening round of sinful gluttony I am surprised it’s not higher.
Father in Heaven, I confess this gluttony as sin. Please forgive me and help me to be free from gluttony by walking according to Your Holy Way. This past week I have begun to see the difference between not eating most evenings, but instead spending time in Your WORD and getting to bed early compared to my usual practices. Help me, Holy Spirit, to live in purity in this area. You have helped me walk out of masturbation, and are helping me to more quickly recognize, and tear down, and reject sexually lustful and immoral thoughts. Help me, Holy Spirit, to begin the same path to victory in the area of eating, over-eating, and gluttony. It is sin to turn to food instead of turning to You. It is idolatry, placing other gods before You. Forgive me of such evil and help me to walk free of it. I know that I CAN, because Your Holy Grace IS sufficient for me. I CAN do all things through CHRIST JESUS WHO strengthens me. Help me to quickly recognize, tear down, and outright reject all thoughts that are used to lead me down this path that I may walk pure and holy before You in this area. In LORD Jesus Holy Name I pray. Amen.
