Scriptures on Weight Loss

weight loss scripturesEarlier today I received a call requesting a listing of scriptures on weight loss and weight management.  The lady is leading a Bible study and searching for Bible verses  and came across my web site.

After looking through my material, I consolidated many scriptures I had identified and developed a listing.  They are now on the Scriptures Page of the site and also available at this link:  Scriptures Related to Weight Loss and Weight Management.

A Few Scriptures on Weight Loss

“You satisfy me more than the richest of foods.”  Psalm 63:5

“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.”  Ephesians 2:10

“For He has satisfied the thirsty soul, and the hungry soul He has filled with what is good.”  Psalm 107:9

“I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.”  Jesus in John 15:5

A Weight Loss Resource

Soul Food (a book) – “Food won’t fill a God-sized hole.”  Terri Lykins, R.D.. This book is primarily about spiritual issues of eating and weight loss. This book is based upon biblical principles and supported by many scriptures that are related to weight loss. Lykins makes the point that many people have an unhealthy relationship with food as they are trying to feed their soul with physical food when they really need spiritual food.

  1. Shane Elkins says:

    I think oneof the reasons its hard to loose weight our mind is divided of course we all want to be slimer but its very hard to stay focused.I think also i think at times the only way to loose it is by staying busy and not thinking about eating or to sneak something out of the kitchen or refregerator.I think it all depends on how bad do we want to loose it

  2. Thank you for this site. I have a need to walk in freedom from compulsive eating, especially sugar, salt and fat. I want to be satisfied with my relationship with Jesus only.
