Whenever You Are Stressed, Discouraged, or Overwhelmed
The Spirit alone gives eternal life. Human effort accomplishes nothing. And the very words I have spoken to you are spirit and life.
John 6:35 (NLT)
Jesus replied, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry again. Whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.
Whenever you are overwhelmed, stressed, discouraged, or in despair, your problems aren’t caused by your circumstances. The problem is you are running your life without an adequate supply of food for your spirit. What you need is an infusion of “spirit and life” into your mind, heart, and soul. Child, how much time have you spent meditating on My words this week? If your answer is “little to none,” then your spirit is starving. You don’t need empty advice from people; you need spiritual food. I am the only One who can fill up your spirit. The only spirit-and-life food I offer are My words.
You can fill your mind with knowledge and information; you can fill your heart with feelings and images; you can surround yourself with people. But the only way you can fill your soul with the spirit and life you need is by delighting in My words. As you feast on My words, your spirit will be nourished, and you will soar above your problems. I promise!
