Nourishment for the Soul- September 26, 2023 

Tuesday, September 26th

Devotional written by Loretta Peña, Executive Director of Adult Ministries




To read today:  Psalm 119:36-39


Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation.

1 Peter 2:2





Just as our physical bodies require nourishment to grow and thrive, our souls need spiritual nourishment to mature in our faith. God’s Word is the perfect food for our souls. It provides the sustenance we need to grow in our relationship with Him and to become more like Christ.

When we read and meditate on God’s Word, it feeds our souls and satisfies our deepest longings. It brings comfort in times of trouble, wisdom in moments of decision, and encouragement when we feel weary. Just as a newborn baby craves milk, we are called to crave the pure spiritual milk of God’s Word.

Let us not neglect this essential nourishment for our souls. May we hunger and thirst for God’s Word, knowing that it is through Scripture that we find true satisfaction and spiritual growth. As we delight in His Word, may our souls be refreshed, and our faith strengthened.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank You for providing Your Word as nourishment for my soul. Help me to crave it like a newborn baby craves milk. May Your Word satisfy the deepest longings of my heart and lead me into a deeper relationship with You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
