Lamentations 3:40 “Let us look closely at our ways and examine them and then return to the Lord.”
A lot of people die–before they die. Not because of physical or emotional causes, but because of spiritual neglect. They starve their spiritual life of the nourishment it needs daily. When you don’t feed on God’s Word you drift away into the world. You lose sight of the purpose God has for your life. When you forget or don’t know God’s purpose, your joy and passion for life dies. Apathy and total indifference can take over.
Rather than going through life by design, you go through life by default. This leads to insecurity, materialism, worry, and fear. Stop looking to the world. Spiritual health and security lies with the Lord. When your spirit is in balance with God’s design, your emotional and physical health will benefit. You will return to the joy and passion for everyday living.
Deuteronomy 8:3 “People need more than bread in their life. Real life comes by feeding on every word of God.”
