Daniel Fast, Day Fifteen

This morning our Pastor shared a good message on Hearing the Voice of God. He was encouraging the congregation to fall in love with the Word of God. There were many good points, and a few that stood out to me above the rest.

In Matthew chapter 4, when Jesus was tempted by Devil, the enemy tried to tempt him in his flesh, by trying to get him to eat. Jesus responded with the Word. If we have the Word in us, then we can respond with the Word when times of tempting come. Otherwise we will respond in our flesh – and because the flesh loves to be satisfied, we may give in if we respond in that manner.

Just as we give our bodies physical nourishment through healthy food, we must feed our spirit, and nourish it through reading the bible and prayer. If we did not eat, we would not survive. In just the same way, if we do not feed our spirit the healthy food it needs from the Word, it would not survive either.

I have not departed from his commands, but have treasured his words more than daily food.  Job 23:12
