Let “The Word of the Lord” suppresses the “snack attack.”©
Fr. Nigel W.D. Mumford+

I was praying a while ago about my increasing weigh. I’m not as mobile as
I used to be, so the pounds were adding up. I found myself “grazing” at the
Refrigerator way too often. I would open the door and almost expect a miracle of some new apparition of a tasty morsel left for me to munch on that was not there an hour ago! What on earth am I thinking? I was snacking way too much. I was not looking after my body. What to do, what to do?

So, in prayer, the Lord showed me to graze or snack on “His Word.”
I put a bible outside the fridge.
I also put a bible in a zip lock bag inside the fridge.

Now when I am tempted to graze inside the fridge I first graze on “The
Word” of the Lord outside the fridge. I open the Bible sitting next to the fridge and read what ever the Lord leads me to.
99% of the time that is enough to “redirect” my mind from food to the word of the Lord. Quenching the spirit of gluttony that was slowly overtaking me.

If the urge to eat is not quelled at that moment, I would then open the fridge and take out the zip lock bag with a very cold bible within it!
Now I will read something from “that” bible.
At this point, the Lord closes down my desire as I am truly seeking first the Kingdom Of God and not some fattening snack.

Let “The Word of the Lord” suppresses the “snack attack.”
Give it a try.
The cheapest diet I have ever tried!

Please be assured of my prayers as you try the Bible diet!
I’m praying for your health.
Let me know how it works for you.

Be well,
Do good works,
And for the sake of God love one another.

Please don’t say,
“My cancer”
“My arthritis”
“My illness”

I believe owning a dis-ease is counter productive and not a good idea!
If you “have to” name it say,

“the cancer”
“the arthritis”
“the dis-ease”

This could be a quantum leap in your thinking and view of disease.
Moving from “My” to “the” (low case) is a better way of addressing the issue, physically, emotionally and spiritually.
Owning a dis-ease it is not the best solution!
The Lord wants health and salvation, (from the Greek word SoZo)* for us all.
I’m not suggesting denial but when we “own” a dis-ease it belongs to us!
I don’t think illness should belong to us or, much worse, become our identity.

Biblical foundation.
JOHN 5:6-9
6 When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he already had been in that condition a long time, He said to him, “Do you want to be made well?”

7 The sick man answered Him, “Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up; but while I am coming, another steps down before me.”

8 Jesus said to him, “Rise, take up your bed and walk.” 9 And immediately the man was made well, took up his bed, and walked.

* The new testament of the King James Version of the Bible was originally translated from a greek manuscript. Since the manuscript was written in greek it makes sense to study the greek words themselves to better understand the King James Bible. A word study is done on a specific greek word to determine its exact meaning. When the greek word is better understood the meaning of different versus becomes more clear. As an example consider the greek word sozo which has been translated in the New Testament the following ways:

save or saved

May the Sozo of the Lord be upon you with power and signs following.
God bless you.
Be well, do good works and for the sake of God love one another.

My friend, If you have an issue with your physician, medication or medical protocols perhaps this will help you. Personally I believe in “Prayer and Prozac!”
I believe God has given us gifts that are directly from him! We NEVER tell people to go against the protocols of your physician or pharmacist. It’s “both and.” “Medicine and Miracles.

If you say grace over your food, try saying grace over your medications. That they will “hit the target” and “have no side effects.”

Biblical foundation:
The wisdom of Ben Sirach
From the apocrypha readings of Sirach in the bible.
(The term apocrypha is used with various meanings, including “hidden”, “esoteric”, “spurious”, “of questionable authenticity” and “Christian texts that are not canonical”. Wikipedia.)

Pay particular attention to verses 1, 8, 13 and 14. Verse 15 confirms the words of Jesus to go and sin no more. The correlation of sin and “some” sicknesses.

SIRACH 38:1-15

[1] Honor the physician with the honor due him,
according to your need of
him, for the Lord created him;
[2] for healing comes from the Most High,
and he will receive a gift from the king.
[3] The skill of the physician lifts up his head,
and in the presence of great men he is admired.
[4] The Lord created medicines from the earth,
and a sensible man will not despise them.
[5] Was not water made sweet with a tree
in order that his power might be known?
[6] And he gave skill to men
that he might be glorified in his marvelous works.
[7] By them he heals and takes away pain;
[8] the pharmacist makes of them a compound.
His works will never be finished;
and from him health is upon the face of the earth.
[9] My son, when you are sick do not be negligent,
but pray to the Lord, and he will heal you.
[10] Give up your faults and direct your hands aright,
and cleanse your heart from all sin.
[11] Offer a sweet-smelling sacrifice, and a memorial
portion of fine flour,
and pour oil on your offering, as much as you can afford.
[12] And give the physician his place, for the Lord created him;
let him not leave you, for there is need of him.
[13] There is a time when success lies in the hands of physicians,
[14] for they too will pray to the Lord
that he should grant them success in diagnosis
and in healing, for the sake of preserving life.
[15] He who sins before his Maker,
may he fall into the care of a physician.

Coincidence or God-incidence?

Coincidence or God-incidence?
By Fr. Nigel W.D. Mumford+

My father, The Rev. David Mumford+, taught me about the healing ministry, about faith and about God’s mysterious ways. He was an Anglican vicar for the latter half of his life (like me). When he was in parish ministry he would leave Wednesday afternoons free to spend time with the Lord. Most Wednesday afternoons something would happen. One of his stories he told me was about sitting in his chair after lunch on a Wednesday afternoon. He felt strongly led to get in his car. So he got in his car. He prayed. The Lord told him to start the car and take a left turn out of his driveway. He drove, praying all the time. As he prayed, the Lord would tell him where to go. He came to an intersection (cross roads) where an ambulance, with emergancy lights flashing, was stationary at the halt line… the driver was out of the cab with his hat on the back of his head looking desperate. He was looking at a map… (This was pre GPS) my dad stoped and asked him if he needed directions.

The driver said yes, he is on his way to a heat attack call and was lost! My dad asked the address of the victim. My dad said the said the name of one of his parishioners. The driver said, “THATS HIM” my dad said, “FOLLOW ME”

My dad turned around, put on the full beams of his car and the emergency flashers and was chased by the ambulance all the way to the man’s house.
They arrived just in time to save his life.

Coincidence or God-incidence?

Listen to the still small voice of the Lord.

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”

Here is a plan for your hearts desire.

1). Write down everything you would like in a mate.
2). Hold the list up to God and ask Him what He would like to bless on your list. Aligning your hearts desire with God.
3). Pray.
4). Place your list in your bible at 1 Corinthians 13 and then watch the Lord, being proactive.

Keep me posted.
I’m very interested in answered prayer.
You are “BOTH” in our prayers.
