The Bible Is Food For The Soul

Daily God Walk for Tuesday, February 21, 2012

He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your fathers had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord.

– Deuteronomy 8:3

 This is an interesting passage. Moses seems to be saying that God caused the Israelite people to be hungry so that he could show his ability to provide for them. And, that the provision was not the important thing, but the important thing was the Word of God because it was the word of God that made the provision available.

Just like Israel, we tend to focus on the provision and accuse God when the provision doesn’t come like we expected. But we must remember that the availability of the provision depends on our response to the Word of God. When God speaks and we respond he opens the storehouse of heaven and we are able to partake of the promised provision.

When we look only to the provision we miss the impact of the Word which leads us to get off track and miss the greater thing that God has planned for us. The purpose of temporal provision is to lead us to faith for his eternal provision.

God’s Word is food for our soul – eat it regularly.

Prayer: Lord, help me not to look at you as the magic provider, but to see you as the one who is himself the provision. Grant me the grace of faith to believe in every Word that proceeds from you and submit myself to it. In Christ’s name, amen.
