The lesson today brought to the forefront that we should make it our priority each morning to come to God’s Word first and foremost to obtain happiness in the Lord…not to let go of His Word until we experience His deep nourishment in our souls.

This isn’t to be done so that we can share with others or have an idea of what to say to them or to get input about ministry. This is done merely to feed our souls.

O God, you are my God,
earnestly I seek you;
my soul thirsts for you,
my body longs for you,
in a dry and weary land
where there is no water.
I have seen you in the sanctuary
and beheld your power and your glory.
Because your love is better than life,
my lips will glorify you.
I will praise you as long as I live,
and in your name I will lift up my hands.
My soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods;
with singing lips my mouth will praise you.
On my bed I remember you;
I think of you through the watches of the night.
Because you are my help,
I sing in the shadow of your wings.
My soul clings to you;
your right hand upholds me.
– Psalm 63:1-8
