A Feast For The Spirit

“Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.”  Matthew 4:4 (NIV)

Imagine getting ready to eat a delectable buffet dinner—yet when you reached for a plate someone said, “This food is off limits!”  Disappointment would be an understatement.  I wonder, though, if my spirit feels the same way when I reach for my Bible, only to be distracted by the phone.  Some days I find myself being carried on a raging river of busyness.  Life is often so hectic that I feel like Mr. Incredible when he says, “I can break through walls, but I can’t find my socks in the morning!”  So here’s the rub: even when I’m running around like the proverbial chicken—I never forget to feed my body three square meals a day.  The sad truth is that there are days when I spend more time feeding my flesh than my poor, emaciated spirit.

Thankfully, Jesus is way ahead of me!  He knew that I could not survive without “manna” or bread from heaven.   Lovingly, He reminds me that if I stay in His Word, I won’t be trying to flesh out this life while starving to death in my spirit.  The Bible is there to give us all strength, guidance, and encouragement:  – food for the soul!  Open God’s Word today—there is a delicious buffet among those pages that will bring life to our innermost beings.  The more we hunger for every word that comes from the mouth of God, the more we are filled with bread from heaven!

“Dear Lord, Help us to spend time in Your word, fueling our spirits and finding sustenance in the “Bread of Life”, Your son, Jesus Christ.”

For His Glory

  1. I am amazed that when I read the Bible, God usually has a word for me for what I am facing that day. It is a true source of wisdom and comfort.
