Sometimes I stretch the limits on how long I can go without my air assistance. I feel drained and weak until I get that air pressure back in me and then it feels like I'm revived with energy. Our organs need oxygen to make them run correctly. Without oxygen, they struggle to keep up and to meet the demands we put on our bodies.
We are souls that live within a body and our souls need God. We choose how close to or how far we are from God. Without God, our souls struggle to find meaning, peace, and purpose. With God's soul support, we find hope, everlasting love, peace that surpasses all understanding, victory over death's sting, and an eternal destiny. We feed the soul by using God's provisions in the way He intended.
Our souls are not meant to be fed occasionally, but daily by God's resources. We need our daily bread of God's Word, prayers without ceasing and daily encouragement by our brethren. Hebrews 3;13 ''But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called “Today,” so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness.''
If your soul is feeling lost and depleted, then maybe you're starving it from Who it really needs... God.
