Soul Nourishment

“My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God?” Psalm 42:2

 

Spirit-filled Christians have a craving for Christ—there is an insatiable desire for intimacy with their Savior. Activity and busyness, even for God, can taste like sawdust to the soul, but sitting at the feet of Jesus revives the spirit and satisfies our deepest longings to be known and loved by the Lord. Like water hydrates the body, only heaven hydrates the heart.

Our innermost being hungers and thirsts for spiritual food, but do we take the time to shop at God’s grocery store? Are we hunting for healthy soul food or we snacking at the world’s table with a diet that is detrimental to the eternal? Our Master Jesus has a menu made up of spiritual nutrients that nourish the soul. His filling food is accessed by faith.

“Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.” John 6:35

Just like the body routinely looks for three meals a day and plenty of refreshing liquids, so your soul yearns for spiritual sustenance. Without the required daily input of needed nutrition—the neglected soul starves for lack of attention. The diseases of discouragement, fear, unforgiveness and hopelessness attack and defeat the spiritual immune system of an intimacy deprived and sick soul.

However, you contribute to a healthy heart by designating a meeting place of prayer with God. Go there often and drink in the Lord’s love, forgiveness and wisdom. Feed by faith at the feet of Jesus at a smorgasbord with the secret sauce of a saved soul. Grace feeds the heart of a grateful soul that has been graced by God. Pain and conflict fatigue faith to the point of parched lips, but praise and worship to Jesus drinks from His deep well of glory.

Your God, the father of our Lord Jesus Christ, is alive, ready and willing to fill your hungry heart with faith, and satisfy your thirsty soul with eternal security. Heaven always prepares a delicious meal that is beautifully presented in prayer. Wake up and worship the Lord—mid-morning, snack on Scripture—listen to the Lord at lunch—mid-afternoon, meditate on your blessings—at dinner discuss His faithfulness—and thank Him as you retire in the evening. A soul nourished by God meets with God and is eternally satisfied.

“My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the LORD; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.” Psalm 84:2

Lord, how do you want to nourish and feed my soul with Your heavenly banquet table?
