Rhema, the food of your spirit!
Matthew 4:4: But Jesus told him, “No! The Scriptures say, ‘People do not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”
My dear friend in Christ, today’s text is very profound in many ways. However, the most important take is that only the Rhema word is food for your spirit man. This is the word that proceeds from the mouth of God. This word carries with it the very nature of God. What is communicated to you whenever God speaks to you is bigger than your imagination.
Unfortunately, many believers do not understand the gravity or this truth. They go through their Christian experiences frustrated because they haven’t been feeding their spirit man or rather eating the wrong food. No wonder the Bible says as we behold Him, we are changed into the same image as His son. 2 Corinthians 3:18
Reading the Bible alone is simply feeding on the logos which is the written word. There is therefore a need to meditate on the logos so that the Rhema word from the Lord can feed your spirit man. When He speaks, you will hear what He is saying. Jesus declares, my sheep hears my voice. John 10:27
You can now see why God gave Joshua that stern instruction in Joshua 1:8 “This Book of the Law shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may observe and do according to all that is written in it. For then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall deal wisely and have good success.” Start feeding your spirit man from today and watch your life transform completely. I call you blessed.
Declare to yourself loud: my food is God’s word.
- Spirit of the Living God, let your word tabernacle in my heart always and cause me to meditate on it day and night, Jesus’ name. Amen.
- Please add your personnal intentions.
