A Reminder To Stay Plugged Into His Word

In review of Matthew 4:4 it says, “Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.”

Bottom Line:
No one can live bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.

What this means to me:
I can not live on bread alone, I need to see and be obedient to the word God provides. Being diabetic, I really notice when my blood sugar gets low or if I’ve gone without protein for a stretch of time. I start to feel a little weak. If I go too long I get jittery and cranky. I would imagine If I went even further, I’d start to feel lethargic.

The same is true with God’s Word. This verse says, “Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God” (Matthew 4:4 NIV). Putting God’s Word in my life, is as necessary as eating. Likewise, If I don’t get into his word, I”ll get cranky and lethargic.

Just going to church is not enough. This is much like going to a banquet once on Sunday and fasting for the rest of the week.

I have learned that whatever I put into my body and mind is what’s going to come out. In my field, computer technology, we used to have a saying... garbage in, garbage out. If I let my mind be filled with garbage, and there’s plenty of it out there, that’s what’s going to come out in actions and words.

By default, my life is filled with all kinds of things I see on TV, hear on the Radio and read in magazines, newspapers or billboards. A better investment would be to make sure that I’m not missing my daily time with him and his word. Continuing to stay plugged into his word will help my outlook on life and allow good things to flow from it.

Jesus said, “If you abide in My Word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:31-32 NKJV). So, if I abide in God’s Word, I’ll experience freedom in my heart and Heaven for eternity. And, then I’ll prove to the world that I am a disciple of Jesus Christ.
