Wednesday, 8th May 2024: The WORD is the nourisher of your soul!

Scripture Reading:1 Peter 2:2
As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:

Reflections: Breast milk is crucial for the health and growth of babies as it provides all the necessary nutrients in the proper proportions. Additionally, it helps protect babies from illnesses and diseases. Interestingly, breast milk changes in volume and composition based on various factors such as time of day, frequency of nursing and age of the baby, which promotes healthy growth. In the same way, Paul compares the importance of the WORD of God to the spiritual health and development of a child of God. Just as a baby desires and draws nourishment from their mother’s breast milk, a person should crave the word of God and apply it to their daily life. The WORD is the nourisher of your soul!

Prayer: Oh Lord help me stay connected to the nourishing power of your WORD.

Confession: I desire the WORD and apply it to my daily living.
