Scriptures to help gain control of our appetites
You have circled this mountain long enough. Now turn north . . . Deuteronomy 2:3
for he satisfies the thirsty
and fills the hungry with good things.
The appetite of the lazy craves, and gets nothing, while the appetite of the diligent is richly supplied. Proverbs 13:4
He said to Me, “You are My Servant, Israel, In Whom I will show My glory.” Isaiah 49:3
“Then your light will break out like the dawn, And your recovery will speedily spring forth; And your righteousness will go before you; The glory of the Lord will be your rear guard. Isaiah 58:8
Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. Isaiah 60:1
he has filled the hungry with good things . . .
In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. 12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires. 13 Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an instrument of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer every part of yourself to him as an instrument of righteousness. Romans 6:11-13
1 Corinthians 3:16
I discipline my body and bring it under strict control, so that after preaching to others, I myself will not be disqualified.1 Corinthians 9:27
“I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but I will not be mastered by anything.
1 Corinthians 6:12
Therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord. 2 Corinthians 5:6
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body. Philippians 3:20-21
