    This is quite straightforward! When the word of God speaks to and through us, we experience the ultimate satisfaction, even more than what any natural substance this earth produces can give. The word of God is simply satisfying to the body, mind and soul. It positively stimulates the mind, energizes and rejuvenates the body, it cleanses the soul and it frees the spirit.
