There is only one thing the soul needs....

Thanks be to You, Lord Jesus, Captain of our salvation, for the goodly weapon of Your Word, with which we drive the enemy before us, and can rout thrones and potentates. Create in us a zeal for Your Word, willingly to hear and learn it, that we may always have our weapon polished and ready. Amen.

We were reading from The Freedom of a Christian...and we thought this really tied in with the prayer from Psalm 119 that is listed above.
The soul needs only one thing: the Word of God. When this is missing, the soul lacks the one thing that is essential... For what else could it possibly need? The Word brings life, truth, light, peace, righteousness, salvation, joy, liberty, wisdom, power, grace, glory, and every other blessing imaginable. 

After reading all of these blessing that come with what the Word of God creates, how can I not want but to surround myself daily with God's Word? Through faithful pastors, parents, and friends is the only way I see this happening for me. Faith doesn't come from looking within yourself. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.

Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them. Psalm 119:165
