Today we want to continue on our exploration of the faith component of the Daniel Plan. I quote from page 24:
"One of the most famous statements by Jesus is John 8:31-32 “If you continue to obey my teaching, you are truly my followers. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.
Jesus promises that the truth will make you free. But first, the truth is likely to make you miserable! We don't like to face the truth about ourselves, our weaknesses, our bad habits, and especially our motivations. But until you face the truth about why you do what you do and get to the root of your habits, change is likely to be shallow and short lived.
Too often popular fad diets offer fast formulas, easy pills and secret cures that supposedly will melt the fat away. By contrast, the Daniel Plan helps you to face the truth about yourself and your relationship to God, to food, to your purpose in life, and to other people. If you are looking for a quick fix, this isn't the program for you. But if you want to build an authentically healthy life based on the truth of God, and you're willing to be honest with God, yourself and a few trusted friends, then by all means keep going.
Nothing will change permanently until you dig down to the bedrock of truth about your life and God's purpose for it.
This program is meant to be a starting point on a journey that will take you the rest of your life!"
