2 Timothy 2:15 – Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. (KJV)
For years, I struggled with migraine headaches. I did discover a couple of the triggers, so I tried to avoid them to the best of my ability. Unfortunately, it wasn't always possible.
Then I found a product that was said to boost my health in every way. I never thought about it helping my migraines. I just wanted to feel better all around. After several months of taking it, I realized that, yes, I did feel better physically — but also that I hadn't had a migraine since having started to take it. Taking this product is now a priority in my life.
I have likened this experience to taking the Word of God into our souls every day. If we continually read His Word and apply it to our lives, we are healthier spiritually, emotionally, and often physically. Sometimes, by reading God's Word, one area of our lives improves, and that affects the whole.
Let us put spending time with God as a priority in our lives. Our souls need to be fed, and we do that by reading His Word, praying, and communicating with Him. Often, journaling is helpful as well. Time hearing the message of God's servants is beneficial. Small group life is important. We need each other to help us along the path of life.
Prayer: Thank You, Lord, for Your written Word that You have given us. Help us to really know in our hearts that there is power in Your Word to keep us healthy, for then, and only then, will we set our time with You as a priority. Amen.
