The Truth about Broccoli – Isaiah 55
I prefer eating fruit to vegetables, but I know that veggies contain inportant fibre and nutrients that my body needs. I trust that nutritionists know what they are talking about when they tell me to eat my broccoli. I have faith that if I do what I am told, the vitamins and minerals in those healthy foods will, over time, nourish my body’s systems and provide them what they need to flourish.
I have never finished my grapefruit and suddenly felt its vitamin C surging through my body. I’ve never had a swig of milk and suddenly felt the calcium reinforcing my bones. I take it on faith that those things are happening.
Isaiah 55:10 says, “The rain and the snow stay on the ground to water the earth. They cause the grain to grow producing seed…and bread for the hungry…It’s the same with my word. I send it out and it aways produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to and it will prosper everywhere I send it.”
It is comforting to know that my spiritual nutrition is doing its work as long as I am faithfully in God’s word. It is making me stronger and wiser and more resilient.
