Insight: When we’re hungry, we love to quench our appetite with some good food that nourishes our body back to life. But what about our soul? Psalm 42:1-2 says, “As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God? Our souls are thirsty for truth in today’s world that is filled with deceit, manipulation and downright lies. Where can we go to nourish our soul? The answer is God’s living and breathing word (2 Timothy 3:16) found in the Bible.The Bible is the Soul Food that we crave. Without ingesting it, we are like a rudderless ship adrift on the Ocean. We wander aimlessly through life without a compass to navigate the best path forward. But when we “meditate on the scripture day and night,” as Joshua implores us above in Joshua 1:8 then our soul comes to life within us as it digests the nutrients found in God’s word. Just like our bodies need food to function, so also do our souls need to feast on the Soul Food found in the Bible so they will also be well nourished!
