Daily Devotional: Are you dying of spiritual malnutrition?June 1, 2019 Save Article
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 4:4
Christians are suffering a famine because so many pulpits aren’t feeding their flocks the heavenly bread. If you’re not feeding on the Bible daily, you’re either not saved or you’re dying of spiritual malnutrition. Our strength is found when we feed upon the Word of God.
Job said, “I have esteemed the words of His mouth more than my necessary food” (Job 23:12). Job was saying that if he had to choose between eating physical bread or spiritual bread, he would rather have the Word of God.
I pray that everyone reading this will commit to a daily routine of exercising on their knees in prayer and feeding with the nutritious bread of God’s Word.
