Am I My Own Worst Enemy?

I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies. Psalm 18:3

Usually I take this verse very literally and it gives me reassurance that God is going to protect me from any enemies I might have accrued during my life time.  This time, when I read this verse, it was much more personal. I wondered if my enemy was me. Am I my own worst enemy?

I'm the one who thinks that one little bite won't hurt and then down a half a bag of something before turning it over to Christ's very capable hands to rid me of that compulsion. I'm the one who thinks I can do more than is humanly possible and end up exhausted and irritable with those I love. I am the one who turns my back on the food and life lessons Christ has taught me about and try to ignore what I know in order to eat or do something I know isn't productive for me or my soul.

I'm the one who let food become a false god, turning to it in times of stress, loneliness, etc. instead of turning to my Lord and Savior. He has healed me from this, but I'm the one who tries to pretend by my actions that I don't need His help, but I DO!!! I need to be much more mindful of this in my daily life? I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies. Psalm 18:3
