Good Calories

The Word of God is powerful calories. Jonathan Trotter points out that sometimes we just need calories so we should be ingesting the Word of God daily. It should be a constant source of nourishment. There are times when I start reading and find myself in awe of God’s miracles power. Times when I pick up my Bible and it feels like the Word of God was written just for me. That God looked through the ages and said, “Mike will need this.” It makes me feel so connected to God that I want to shout. There are other times when I read my Bible and feel convicted. I start to feel I am so unworthy of the love of God. I cannot understand how God could love me.

Then there are times when I read my Bible and think “yup, that’s true.” Nothing amazing, no trumpets, no revelation, just truth. These (and others) are valid. The power of Scripture does not rest in its ability to make me feel good, it is in the fact that it is the reliable Word of God. Sometimes you just need to eat.
