But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.” Matthew 4:4
The Bible tells us that God breathed into man and he became a living being (Genesis 2:7). It also tells us that all Scripture is God-breathed (2 Timothy 3:16). 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 life.
That is why you may go to church feeling tired but leave feeling energized and refreshed. There have been times I have felt so tired not wanting to go to church but upon going, I feel so refreshed. God’s word breathed life into my body. There have been many people healed and become stronger because they spend time in God’s Word.
It is no wonder that Proverbs 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 under the weather or if symptoms are attacking your body, double up on God’s medicine. Simply feed more on God’s Word, and you will find life and health flowing through your body again.
From the scripture above, Jesus said that man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. As important as it is for us to eat daily- even for some 3 times – so should we feed on the Word of God because the Word of God is food for your body, spirit and soul. Jesus wants us to know that we need God’s Word even more than our daily meals.
So whatever you do, remember to get your daily feeding of God’s Word. Read your Bible in the comfort of your home or in the office during your lunch break – not working hours. You can listen to CDs and watch DVDs. Choose whichever form you prefer and get His Word into you!
My friend, you cannot live when you stop breathing. In the same way, you cannot live without the Word because it is the very breath of God which gives you life and health! The Word of God is food you should never miss out on.
