Nourish

Nourish means to keep in one’s mind, typically for a long time.  We are encouraged through several Scriptures to be rooted and grounded in our faith, and to remain steadfast, immoveable, and enduring.  Trials purify our faith to make it strong.

This morning I read the book of 1 Timothy.  I was delighted when I came to chapter four and verse  six.  It says, “If you instruct the brethren in these things, you will be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished in the words of faith and of the good doctrine which you have carefully followed.”  The Amplified says, “…ever nourishing your own self on the truth of the faith…”

Romans 10:17 says, “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”  Each time we meditate on the truths from God’s word, we are nourishing our faith!
