The soil of Eden

Jesus carry animated

God will help you understand his Word

What keeps you going?

Your words are what sustain me. They bring me great joy and are my heart’s delight, for I bear your name, O Lord God Almighty.

I will write down these things as a testimony of what the Lord will do. I will entrust it to my disciples, who will pass it down to future generations.

Isaiah 8:16 NLT

For I have stayed in God’s paths; I have followed his ways and not turned aside. I have not departed from his commands but have treasured his word in my heart.

Job 23:11-12 NLT 

The soil of Eden

Our bodies originated in the soil of Eden. It should not surprise us that they are sustained by food that grows from the soil. Every source of food ultimately finds its nourishment in the soil, and that nourishment sustains our bodies. 

Likewise, our souls were created by the breath of God in Eden; it should not surprise us that the Word of God, which is inspired, or “God breathed,” sustains our souls. If we plan to eat food each day to keep our body alive, shouldn’t we also plan to feast on God’s Word each day to sustain our soul?
