When The Manna Stops

By |Jul 21, 2016|Devotionals, Formation, Growth, Spiritual Food|0 Comments

The manna got Israel through the wilderness; afterwards they were to eat the fruit of their own labors.  Some of the spiritual fruit that we eat we must find, cultivate, water, harvest and prepare.  Our spiritual food must move beyond a God hand-out.  There is reading, meditation and real study.  God has food for our

Health Food

By |Apr 12, 2016|Christ, Devotionals, Life, Spiritual Food, Word of God|0 Comments

We are learning that what we eat affects our health.  We do not live by bread alone but by every word of the Lord (Dt 8:3, Mt 4:4, Lu 4:4).  We may tend to be selective in what words we consume from the Lord.  Some words may be bitter to the taste but sweet to

King of Bread

By |Dec 8, 2015|Advent, Christ, Devotionals, Kingdom of God, Spiritual Food|0 Comments

The world wants kings that will give them bread aplenty.  Jesus multiplied bread to feed thousands.  His kingdom citizens are commanded to feed the hungry.  It is no accident that the King of Bread was placed in a manger (feeding trough).  He is the true Manna from Heaven that gives life to the world.  We

Live Hand To Mouth

By |Aug 12, 2015|Christ, Devotionals, Prayer, Spiritual Food, Trust|0 Comments

“Give us this day our daily bread”.  This is to be our prayer.  It is not wise to live hand to mouth when it comes to caring for your family and your future.  But it is the way we live in our relationship to God.  We depend on Him every moment for every bite our

The Manger and Sheep Food

By |Dec 23, 2014|Advent, Christ, Christmas, Devotionals, Discipleship, Spiritual Food, Word of God|0 Comments

Jesus’ cradle was a manger, a crude feeding trough for sheep.  In this manger sheep food was replaced with the body of Christ.  He would later speak of the necessity of His disciples eating this food (John 6:32-65), fulfilled both by the Lord’s Supper and the spiritual nature of eating and thriving on His words

Nourishment

“If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink”, said Jesus.  He also said, “I am the bread come down from heaven to give life to the world.”  Jesus is bread for our hunger and drink for our thirst.  He is the Bread of Life.  He is the Water of Life.  As Christians

Honey for the Soul

By |Feb 17, 2014|Christ, Devotionals, Encouragement, Spiritual Food|0 Comments

Honey has its own unique taste.  Its sweetness is very gratifying.  Bees sacrifice their short lives to give it to us.  They extract from a thousand flowers the nectar which we share.  Jesus, the Rock, contains honey for our souls.  He is both Bread and Honey from heaven.  To truly know Him is sweetness to

Thirst

By |Nov 19, 2013|Christ, Devotionals, Growth, Renewal, Spiritual Food|1 Comment

Turn toward the source of your life, not away from Him.  Keep drinking from the Fountain of Living Water.  Turn away from the “broken cisterns which can hold no water.”  Turn away from the imitations to the genuine.  Cultivate a thirst for the real, and the artificial will not deceive you.  He will satisfy your

An Appetite for God’s Word

By |Sep 25, 2013|Devotionals, Spiritual Food, Word of God|0 Comments

Cultivating a taste for God’s word can guard you against spiritual junk food.  “Taste and see,” and you will find it good.  His word is sometimes sweet to the taste.  It is sometimes bitter to the taste and sweet to the stomach.  It is bread to the mind and heart.  It will sustain us for

What you think about today can feed your soul tomorrow.  Positive truth sown in the mind is like a seed that will bring forth an abundant harvest.   Hear truth.  Live with it.  Meditate on it.  This food in the storehouse of your mind and heart will see you through the good times and the
