Hungry, Grab the Word! Why Feeding the Spirit is Important

 

Have you ever went to sleep and woke up extremely hungry, “like you have not eaten in days”? This reminds me of the parable in the bible, Matthew 9:23-26, the child who they thought were dead but she was only sleeping.  Everyone was convinced she was dead and God arrived too late to save her but then He spoke to the girl to arise and she did just that!! After awakening her He told the others to give her something to eat. Our spirits need to be fed just like our earthly bodies. When we do not feed our spirit with the word of God, prayer, and quiet time with God the Holy Spirit within us weakens and goes to sleep. But once you spend time with God, He awakens and restores the Holy Spirit within you. As you go through life you will hunger and thirst more for Christ and His word and just like in Matthew 5:6, “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.” So whatever is sleep inside of you maybe a certain goal, relationship with God, His Word, a dream, or a business idea perhaps, awaken it and start feeding it now!
