Need Coffee...NOW



I just got into work and am suffering. I haven't had any coffee yet and I fear I'm becoming not just an addict, but a fiend. I used to start getting a headache by noon if I didn't get any caffeine, but now it's only 8:34 and I can feel it coming on. I think it's because of the amount of espresso I've been drinking. I'd better go grab a cup...
The question I have to ask myself at this point (and you should as well) is could I go for a day without reading my Bible? How come I'm so attached to a chemical that I can't make it through the morning without a debilitating headache, but I can go for days without reading my Bible and it only gives me minor discomfort? May I suggest that the more coffee I drink, the more I want and need it? The same holds true with Bible reading. The more you read your Bible, the more you will desire to read it and even crave the Word. It will become a necessity and you won't go a day without it. Ironically, it will fix many of the spiritual headaches that you have come to accept as the "trials of life". You are putting up with the world, the flesh, and the devil and failing constantly because you don't have the Power of God and you begin to accept defeat instead of tapping into some spiritual caffeine. Endeavor to get so addicted to the Word that you become a Bible fiend!
