Scriptures for Your Journey to Health



I have learned that incorporating Scriptures into every one of life's battles is essential to walking in the victory. I say walk in the victory because the war has already been won. We may not win every battle, but we know how the war ends - in victory. 
Healthy living has been one of those series of battles in my life when I have won some and lost some but I refuse to give up the fight because the cost is too great. And the cost is too great for you to. I have learned first hand the greater gift and blessing you can be to other people and the energy and stamina you have to do the things God has called you to when you make healthy living {:not obsessive living:} a priority in your life. 
Health is not about the number on the tag of your jeans or where the number the scale stops on when you step on. Health is about you, your body functioning, as it was intended to.
Here are some of the scriptures I have posted on my mirrors, written on notecards, and committed to memory along this journey. I hope they help and inspire you and create an arsenal of weaponry, as they have for me, as you fight the battle to become the healthiest and best version of yourself.
These scriptures are about eating and healing. The healing scriptures were necessary for me along the journey because though I was no longer behaving with an eating disorder, I still had the thoughts that come along with an eating disorder. You may not have an eating disorder but  I believe healing is necessary for any old thought patterns and behaviors along this journey.
Health
  • Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. - 1 Corinthians 10:31
  • Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.” - 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
  • Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst. John 6:35
  • I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Therefore choose life, that you and your offspring may live, loving the Lord your God, obeying his voice and holding fast to him, for he is your life and length of days, that you may dwell in the land that the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.” - Deuteronomy 30:19-20
  • Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the father. - Matthew 4:4

Self-Control

  • I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. - Philippians 4:13
  • No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. - 1 Corinthians 10:13
  • For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it. - Hebrews 12:11
  • But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. - Galatians 5:16
  • But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified. - 1 Corinthians 9:27
Healing
  • Worship the Lord your God, and his blessing will be on your food and water. I will take away sickness from among you. – Exodus 23:25

  • Is this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loosen the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? – Isaiah 58:6
