Soul food

Generally speaking, we eat three meals a day.Some of us eat more and some eat less but we all eat everyday in order to feel satisfied. When we do not eat, we get hunger pangs. We feel as if we cannot function 100% until we have something in our stomachs. That is just the way the human body is built. If we eat once, twice or three times a week, we will still feel unsatisfied and weak. If we eat 21 meals at one time, the same results. We need to eat food everyday for our bodies to function well. When God sent manna to the children of Israel in the wilderness, he gave them a little at a time.They had to go out and look for it.He did not just drop it in their mouths and fill their bellies.

The same is with spiritual or soul food. We need to have some everyday. We cannot expect to go to church once,twice or three times a week and feel satisfied. Our souls need a steady diet of His Word. We cannot expect preachers to feed us and leave it at that. We do have to go to church and hear His word but  we have to go to God through prayer and studying His Word  also. The same way we have to chew our food a small amount at a time, we have to study His Word  carefully a little at a time for us to get the best of it. Our souls and minds will have a healthy diet if we obey Him and follow His instructions- daily!

 

Matthew 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.

 

Matthew 6:11 -Give us this day our daily bread

 

John 6:35   And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.
