Quotables from the Episode:
- 50% of Americans have a chronic illness or diagnosis.
- 42% of Americans are obese.
- Root causes of disordered eating include candida overgrowth, food addiction, and stress eating.
- Ways to improve our health including removing triggers, get accountability, and get dopamine through activities other than eating sugar (a hug, singing, walking in nature, etc.)
- Look at your plate. If most or all of it comes from the garden or ranch, you’re probably eating pretty healthy.
- Ephesians 5:18: “Don’t drink too much wine, for many evils lie along that path be filled instead with the Holy Spirit and controlled by him.” Use the specific scripture you chose to bind the strong man every time he tempts you. Write this verse on an index card and memorize it.
- James 4:7 (NIV): “Submit yourself to God, resist the devil and he will flee from you.”
- There is a secret to resisting the devil—you must first submit yourself to God. How in the world do you do that? In my experience, you no longer do your will but God’s will by submitting your life to him.
- Luke 10:19: Jesus told his disciples, “Look, I have given you authority over all the power of the enemy” If you are a disciple of Jesus, you can accept the authority he gave you.
- In the book of Acts, the apostles healed and worked miracles in the name of Jesus. Using the name of Jesus is key to binding the strong man of addiction because then you operate under Jesus’s authority.
