Not By Bread Alone

“…man shall not live by bread alone; but man lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the Lord.” Deuteronomy 8:3

Scripture compares itself to bread – to good food and a well-rounded diet. Where you’re getting all that you need to get from the whole council of God’s truth.

There is a need you have for the word of God. When you’re getting that kind of diet, it’s going to release energy into your life. You’re going to have the power to do what you’ve been called to do. That’s why Job said:

“I have treasured the words of His mouth more than my necessary food.” Job 23:12

and David said:

“Your words were found, and I ate them, and Your word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart.” Jeremiah 15:16

When you’re getting the fuel you need from God’s word you’re going to have the power to do what you’ve been called to do.
