4 – Creation and Things That Are Made
4 – Creation and Things That Are Made

Matthew 4:4 (NKJV): 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.’”


John 6:53 (NLT) So Jesus said again, “I tell you the truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you cannot have eternal life within you.”

It is hard to wrap your head around the fact that your spiritual body needs spiritual food just as much as your natural body needs natural food. Some people go to church once or twice a year, get a sermon occasionally, and never open the Bible for themselves. You need to feast on every bit of the word of God that precedes out of the mouth of God. Chew on it, meditate on it, discuss it, and let it rule over every part of your life.

Colossians 3:15-17 (NKJV) 15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. 17 And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.

Brothers and Sisters, when you feel your life is incomplete and lacking, let me encourage you to check your spiritual diet. Check the words that are coming out of your mouth. Do the words match God’s? Check who is influencing your life. Are they feeding your spiritual cookie jar? If you have answered no to either of the questions, may I encourage you to feed on even more of the word of God until not only your cookie jar, but your entire body is overflowing with God’s word.

Declaration: I will do all that is needed in my spiritual life to ensure my entire body is overflowing with God’s word. I will follow the teaching of Christ, and the things I do not understand by faith, I will trust Him, and I will receive them. I will check my spiritual cookie jar daily and ensure it is full of God’s goodies and not the world’s.
