“…for he satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things.” Psalm 107:9 NIV
I cannot be thirsty and look at a glass of water to quench my thirst. I must drink! Neither can I look at food while hungry and expect to be full. I must eat. However, we do this all the time in our spiritual life. Our Bibles are on shelves, displayed on tables, and carried to church, but like water and food, our Bibles are no good to us if we do not partake. Our Bibles must be opened, read and the Words of God applied to our daily lives. Some say the Bible is irrelevant. It is more relevant today than ever. The stories and lessons learned are timeless, and God is the same yesterday, today and forevermore. Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty (John 6:35).” If you need to be refreshed or anything else, open your Bible, partake of His water and food and watch your life be full of good things.
Prayer: Lord, I thank you for your Son, who is the Word and Bread of Life. Lord, I thank you that it is the Living Word and if it lives in me it will bring new life everyday. Help me to pause daily to read your Word that I may partake of its lessons, hope, healing, and guiding power for my life. I will never be thirsty or hungry, for in You I have all I need and want. Please, never let me forget that! In Jesus Name, Amen!
