[The Glory Unveiled]
Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone.’” ( Luke 4:4 )
The word of God is light and life. It is living water and manna to the soul. Without food or water, the flesh dissipates and growth becomes impossible. The word of God says that God’s word is light and lamp to us, without which we walk in darkness. Unless you have ever walked in darkness, you may not appreciate light. But whatever it takes, every living thing understands the need for food or whatever food means to them. So that there are no living things that continue to grow without feeding on something. In the above scripture, Jesus said, man shall not live on bread alone [but every word that proceeds from the mouth of God]. This is because we are spirit beings and spirit is not sustained by flesh nor does flesh lean on the spirit to grow. Without the word of God, the spirit of man cannot grow; the spirit of man starves without the word of God. And if we cannot starve our flesh, then we surely cannot starve our spirits. Let us consciously feed our spirits with the word of God. Let us drag our spirit to the Lord’s table. Let us pray and fast if we must, to shed off every weight so that we can submit our spirit to the tutelage of the Holy Spirit.
Prayer_Bead: Spirit to spirit, Heart to heart, Lover of my soul, thank you for the bread of life and feeding my spirit with your word. Guide me into constructive growth._
