Look at the trees; no one takes care of them. Their life is not shortened by sickness or with their labor, yet they need to drink the rain from heaven and suck from the treasures of earth. Day after day they nourished themselves from the fresh food drawn from the soil.
Much more with us men, we toil, we get tired, we get weary, we faint, how much more that we need to be renewed every day. Our body is nourished by the food that we intake, how about our soul? Where do we get nourishment? Our spiritual life cannot be sustained without renewal from God. Let the Word of God be the food of our soul, as our body eats frequently and so with our soul. Let us draw near through our prayers to the God who renews our strength day after day. Just like the trees let us feed our soul with the freshness of His Word and drink from the water of heaven through our prayers.
Have you been tired lately, have you been so weak, have you been weary. Could it be that you are not taking care of your soul.
Isaiah 40:31 “But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles, they will run and now grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
