Thought of the Day !!

"Yes, [God] humbled you by letting you go hungry and then feeding you with manna, a food previously unknown to you and your ancestors. He did it to teach you that people need more than bread for their life; real life comes by feeding on every word of the LORD."
                                                               Deuteronomy 8:3 (NLT)

Each of us needs physical food to survive.  God made us this way.  But He also made us so that we could be filled completely with His Word.  When we think about His Word, we typically think of Scripture.  But let me suggest that His Word comes to us also by way of prayer.  These are two ways that we come to know God and His will for us.  And when we put them together, or when we prayerfully read our bibles, then we are being nourished by that which far outweighs any portion of food and water we can receive.  For physical food provides strength for a short period, while spiritual nourishment lasts forever.

So immerse yourself in prayer and Scripture so that God can nourish you.

In the love of Christ,
