TOPIC: YOUR DAILY FOOD
TEXT: MATTHEW 4:4 “But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God….”
The Bible tells us that God breathed into man and he became a living being. (Gen. 2:7) Also indicating that all Scripture is God-breathed. (2 Tim. 3:15-16) This means that when you read the Bible or listen to God’s Word preached, you are imbibing the very breath of God which gives you life. That is why there may have been times you walked into church/fellowship feeling tired at first, but left at the end of the service feeling refreshed and energized. What has happened? God’s Word had breathed life into your body! There are many believers becoming healthier, stronger and ever looking younger because they spend time in God’s Word. It is no wonder that Prov. 4:22 tells us that God’s Words are “life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh”. So if you are challenged in any part of your body, take your medications always – God’s medicine. Simply feed more on God’s Word, and you will find life and health flowing through your body again.
Jesus said, that man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. If it is important to eat our meals every day, how much more feeding on God’s Word? Jesus wants us to know that we need God’s Word even more than our daily meals. He made us, so He knows best what our bodies need daily. Read and study your Bible in the comfort of your home or in the office during your lunch break. Listen to Holy Spirit filled messages through your phone, in your car or while doing household chores. If you prefer something more visual, watch life transforming messages. Beloved, you cannot live when you stop breathing. In the same vein, you cannot live without the Word because it is the very breath of God which gives you life and health!
