Minds in Rebellion

We Christian compulsive overeaters are a stiff-necked bunch, not unlike the Israelites long ago. God used His chosen people anyway & worked miracles for them. He made a covenant with the Israelites to do wonderful things in them that other nations could see and give glory to God. No power, but God’s power can break the bonds of stubborn rebellion.

What did Jesus say was the first commandment? "To love the Lord our God with all thy heart, with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. Matt: 22:37"

I think we get down the heart, the soul, even the strength. We follow Christ with everything in us, but we have a problem when it comes to our minds.

Our minds take in our
reason
logic
desire
imagination
memory
will

Sometimes we hold back a little of that. We rebel in some small area which grows into a mountain of unbelief. Today, help me stamp out the rebellion in my mind.
