Faith Based Support Groups - My Motivation Scripture For Today
10-04-2011, 12:49 AM
Not doing so well in the food control/discipline areas for the last 3 days. Thought I'd share a motivation scripture that I came across in my bible reading today. I've read it a zillion times but tonight it means something a little more special...
II John 1:8-
Watch out that you do not lose what we [I] have worked for, but that you may be rewarded fully."

2 SAMUEL 16:7 ~ "Look not on the countenance, or on the height of the stature ... for the Lord sees not as man sees; for man looks on the outward appearance, but GOD looks on the heart."
This scripture helps me remember that GOD loves me just as I am -- even now while I am trying to be as healthy as I can.

This is wonderful!

EXODUS 23:25 ~ And ye shall serve the LORD your GOD, and He will bless your bread and your water; and He will take sickness away from the midst of thee.
This is a nice promise concerning food; so when we say GRACE, we ask that GOD will bless our food to our good health too. :)

LOVING the new posts. I'll add one more....
8 But Daniel resolved not to defile himself with the royal food and wine, and he asked the chief official for permission not to defile himself this way.
So glad, I know the "Chief Official." Today, I have resolved!

FREE1 ~ did you also read verse 15 of that same chapter? (Daniel 1:15) ;)
"After 10 days, they were fairer and fatter than the other children ..." :lol:
This would be a good chapter about the difference between eating meat and legumes (Pulse is a porridge or stew made of legumes & lentils). These children who were used to Pulse were being fed meat and wine; not really the best diet for kids. You can't really blame them for asking for the food & drink (water) they liked and were use to.
DH and I eat some lean meat (with other foods as well); and we also eat fish & poultry, and some meatless dishes (beans, eggs, cheese, pasta, soups, etc). We eat both what we like and what is balanced & healthy too ... :D

Free1 and also verse 12.

That's right ANYTIME!

FREE1 ~ Bless your heart -- you're a good sport! Keep doing those bible studies too ... :hug:

Okay, here's another one for this evening....
No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. [NIV]
I Corinthians 10:13

Your verse made me think of this one -- Jesus was tempted concerning food in the wilderness; and this is how he responded to it using scriptures ...
"Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of GOD." (Matthew 4:4)

11 No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.
Hebrews 12:11 [NIV]

"The meek shall eat and be satisfied; they shall praise the Lord that seek
Him; (and) your heart shall live forever." Psalm 22:26

One of my favorites....
He has showed you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God. Michah 6:8

Here's a comforting promise ...
Hebrews 2:18 ~ "For in that He Himself (Jesus) hath suffered being tempted, He is able to succour* them that are tempted."
*Succour means to relieve, to help, or to rescue (us). This is so encouraging becuz this means that we can turn to Him to help us; relieve us; or rescue us when we are tempted.

"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage;be not frightened,neither be dismayed;for the Lord God is with you wherever you go". Joshua 1:9
