Where Does Your Help Come From?

I love motivational sayings and mantras. They help. They come to mind at just the right moment ... that is, if we choose to let our mind recall them rather than dwelling on food. I always share tips and fun sayings. I thought this year I'd share some of my favorite Bible verses. They help me. Maybe they'll help you, too.

"Taste and see that the Lord is good. Blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him." Psalm 34:8

"Greater is He who is in you than he that is in the world." John 4:4

"A man is a slave to whatever has mastered him." 2 Peter 2:19

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28

"I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength." Philippians 4:13

"Those who cling to worthless idols forfeit the grace that could be theirs. But I, with thanksgiving, will sacrifice to you. What I have vowed I will make good. Salvation comes from the Lord." Jonah 2:8-9

"He said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.'" 2 Cor 12:9

"In my anguish I cried out to the Lord, and He answered by setting me free." Psalm 118:5

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!" 2 Cor 5:17

"But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must master it." Genesis 4:7

"Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me." Philippians 3:14

"Let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith." Hebrews 12:1

"Then Jesus declared, 'I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.'" John 6:35

"Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled." Matthew 5:6

"I urge you to abstain from sinful desires which wage war against your soul." I Peter 2:11

Set your hearts on things above, where Chirst is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things." Colossians 3:1-2

"Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, who you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought with a price. Therefore honor God with your body." I Cor 6:19

"Whoever wishes to come after me, he must deny himslef, and take up his cross and follow me." Mark 8:34

I hope these verses bless you as much as they do me. So, where does your help come from?

"I life up my eyes to the hills. Where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth. Indeed, He who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep." Psalm 121

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Phil. 4:13. I need to surrender to the Holy Spirit every day in order to eat only those foods that are healthy for me. Do I always succeed? No, but it has to be a daily dying to self, and it will be a lifetime surrender.
