don't forget to nourish!

Wasn't I just talking about prayer this week?  Here's a section from my devotional this morning that speaks about it, too!

"It is not part of the life of a natural man to pray.  We hear it said that a man will suffer in his life if he does not pray; I question it.  What will suffer is the life of the Son of God in him, which is nourished not by food, but by prayer.  When a man is born from above, the life of the Son of God is born in him, and he can either starve that life or nourish it.  Prayer is the way the life of God is nourished.  Our ordinary views of prayer are not found in the New Testament.  We look upon prayer as a means of getting things for ourselves; the Bible idea of prayer is that we may get to know God Himself." ~ Oswald Chambers

Yes!  This is true!  As we nourish that life within us, we learn much more about the character of God.  His faithfulness, His steadfastness, His mercy, His grace, His love, His trustworthiness, His goodness, His comfort, His peace, His healing.....and the list could go on and on and on because God is more awesome than our minds could ever grasp through a lifetime!

Spend some time in your garden nourishing God's Holy Spirit who lives within you and learn more about Him!
