Your words were found and I ate them, And Your words became for me a joy and the delight of my heart; For I have been called by Your name, O LORD God of hosts. Jeremiah 15:16
Do you eat your daily bread? Just as the prophet Jeremiah said he ate the “Word of God”, Jesus taught that “Man Can’t live on just food alone” (Matthew 4:4) Many people commit and dedicate time to maintain their physical bodies but do you dedicate time to feed your Spirit also?
Just as the physical body without food and exercise gets weak, so does our Spirit. When we don’t feed on the Word of God, and spend time daily praying and meditating on Gods Word, we grow spiritually weak. We should make it part of our daily routine, to spend time with God and read his word.
But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘MAN SHALL NOT LIVE ON BREAD ALONE, BUT ON EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD.'” Matthew 4:4
When Jesus was being confronted and tempted by Satan, he said we can’t live off just physical food alone but on God’s Word. This is exactly what he was talking about, if we just focus on our physical needs and not our spiritual needs, we won’t be strong to stand against the devils schemes.
‘Give us this day our daily bread. Matthew 6:11
When we say this during the Lords Prayer, are you asking for physical or spiritual nourishment? I believe Jesus wants us to ask God daily for Spiritual wisdom and guidance by the Holy Spirit. So just as we make it a routine to feed or exercise our bodies, make it a practice to study Gods Word in Jesus Name Amen
