Scripture to reflect on: Turn my eyes away from worthless things; preserve my life [my vision] according to your word. Psalm 119:37 NIV

Goal-setting is the most important step in releasing weight. Many people know what they want but haven’t fully considered exactly how they are going to get there.

Thankfully, God has given us many examples and lessons in his Word to teach us how to reach our weight-loss goals, as well as all of our other goals. The answer can be found in Habakuk 2:2, which tells us to “Write the vision.”


Vision is the one thing that will propel you more than anything to reach your goal. More specifically, it will be a vision that aligns itself with God’s vision for your life which will help you reach your goal.


Fast-forward to the end of your life—what will you look back on your life and say? What will you want people to say about how you lived your life? Were you healthy, vibrant and full of vim and vigor, or were you sick often and lacking the energy to play with your children?


We have been given the blessing and the responsibility of choosing how we will live our lives. What is your vision for your health? Having a vision for your life and your health will give you good success, satisfaction and significance in Christ. At critical moments of choice, it’s your vision that will advance you to God or draw you away from Him.

When Jesus was tempted in the wilderness, Satan offered Him worldly success, immediate satisfaction and significance in the eyes of man (Luke 10). But Jesus refused to settle for anything that did not include God, and neither should we. He has given us all a vision and a purpose that is to be carried out in Him, through Him and with Him.

In Hab. 1:2 we are told to write the vision, and make it specific and purposeful.
Staying focused on your vision will prevent you from losing focus and becoming distracted by anything that does not line up with our vision. Next time you’re faced with binging on junk food or making a healthier choice, it’s your vision that will bring you back to what is right.

Write a vision for your health that will motivate you to get up each day and partner with the Holy Spirit to live it out.





If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
