If you subscribe to my blog or follow me on twitter, you will know that this past Sunday (Father’s Day), my wife gave birth to our first child, a sweet little baby girl. You can read more about it in one of my recent posts here.
The doctors told us that we must feed her for every 2 hours. Lynlee was a small baby. She weighed 6 pounds and 6 ounces. 2 hours mean we must get up and feed her in the night, it means that we must wake her up sometimes just to feed her when she is sound asleep. Honestly, it is tough. It is the best job we could ever have, but it is the most difficult as well. I love every second of it. I have come to realize that the reason we feed her is because she is helpless without the food. She will not survive if we do not take the time to feed her. She would not survive if we just went to sleep. She is helpless without the food.
Yesterday I wrote about the importance of the Word of God, and you can check it out here. I have come to realize that we as believers are helpless and will struggle to survive without feeding upon God’s Word. If we just go on with life without daily feeding upon His Word, we will struggle to survive. We will struggle to survive in the midst of difficulty. The Bible promises trials and tribulations that will come our way. When they come, the only way we can make things better and come out on the other side is a daily dose of feeding on the Word of God. It is our source for survival. It is our source for victory over temptation. It is our source of joy during trials.
If you are not daily feeding upon God’s Word, you are headed downhill. I challenge you to begin a daily quiet time where the Word of God and prayer is focused on. This is where joy will be found, and where victory will be accomplished.
