Bits of Wisdom – Eat What Is Good

Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, and let your soul delight itself in abundance. (Isaiah 55:2 NKJV)

Good food for the soul provides what is necessary for our spiritual growth and health. It is satisfying and nourishing. Our job is to “eat” it—to take it into our hearts and minds and digest its truth, instructions, and promises until they become a part of who we are and how we live.

What is included in the good food of God’s Word? Truths that reveal God’s design and purposes of life. Instructions and guidance that help us navigate life God’s way. Encouragement to keep growing and to keep going. Praiseworthy goals and the motivation that we need to keep moving toward them. The knowledge of what our resources are, what they can accomplish, and when to use them. Testimonies from real men and women about the goodness of God and the investments that He makes to bless us and help us.

When we feed our souls with the good food of God’s Word and digest its nourishment with faith, the potential effects are life-changing.
