Spiritual Food

Mathew 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.

It seems that I am eating everything in sight as of late. I don’t have to be hungry. As a matter of fact I can be full. But the desire to put food into my mouth does not go away. And I oblige.

Today it occurred to me. I have not been making time for spiritual food. As I fret and fuss about this decision and that thing, I reach for a chip or a cookie or some sweet tater fries instead of taking time to reach for the sustenance that comes from the Word of God. A scripture verse about trust. A promise given to me by the Lord a long time ago. A brief time of rest as I ask God for His direction.

“Lord, help tomorrow to be different. May I use food to nourish my body, and look to Your Word to feed my spirit.”
