Are You Spiritually Hungry?
“How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!” – Psalms 119:103
Hi, friends! Thank you so much for continuing to show your love and support through reading and subscribing to my blog. As always, I appreciate you!!!
I’ve been giving some thought to nutrition and diet. Many of us eat several times a day. We make sure to feed our physical bodies so that we can have energy to carry out our daily activities. We even snack, sometimes. You’ve heard it said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Some of us won’t leave the house without having some form of breakfast. Many of us don’t miss a meal. We make sure that we eat so that we won’t be hungry.
But what about our spiritual bodies? Do we feed our souls like we feed our bodies? The psalmist penned that the words of the Lord are sweet to taste, sweeter than honey from the honeycomb (Psalms 119:30). The Word of God is food for our souls.
” As newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby.” – 1 Peter 2:2
Do we believe that a spiritual breakfast of the Word of God is the most important “meal” of the day? Do we read and study the Bible before we leave home? Do we “snack” or meditate on the Word of the Lord throughout the day to avoid spiritual hunger pangs? Do we concern ourselves with the correct portion sizes and the appropriate nutrition to avoid malnourishment of the soul?
Are you eating healthily – you know, spiritually? Many of our souls are starving for the Word of God.
Every time that we eat, we should center our minds on a portion of God’s Word. That way, we can feed our souls when we feed our bodies. Jesus said, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me shall never hunger, and He who believes in Me shall never thirst” (John 6:35).
Jesus is the bread that we need to sustain us in this life. He is the Word (John 1:14). We need spiritual sustenance to help us make it through each day. And the Bible is that food that will give us the energy deep down in our souls and in our minds to make it through all of life’s challenges.
Let’s not neglect the nourishment of our souls. Take time to read God’s Word.
Are you spiritually hungry? Have you eaten today?
“Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who trusts in Him!” – Psalms 34:8
