Word of God: It's Life and Health to the Flesh

"My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart; For they are life to those who find them, And health to all their flesh." Proverbs 4:21-22

"So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." Romans 10:17

Do you hear it?! I do. It's an alarm going off about how important it is for believers to be feeding our spirit with God's word every day.

It's summer, and it's easier to get distracted with full calendars and meeting up with friends. Still, we have to be more disciplined. Otherwise, when and if trouble comes (Jesus said it!), we'll find ourselves without an anchor.

“A memory of a potato has never nourished anyone. You can remember what a potato looks like or what it tastes like, but only until you eat a potato will you have nourishment.” – Kenneth Copeland

We need to be nourished and filled by the word of God every day.  Just the memory of the word, or reliving last year's spiritual experience isn't enough. Fill your spiritual tanks today with a favorite bible story, a daily devotional, Proverbs, and or Psalms.

More here on what the Bible says about reading God's Word.
