TOPIC: Life in the Word
SCRIPTURE: 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
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Spirituality is at risk where the Word is in short supply.
The Scripture makes it clear that the Word of God is as necessary to the child of God as milk is to a new born baby (1 Peter 2:2). If a new born baby has no destiny without milk, then, the child of God has no future without the Word.
Now, what is the necessity of the Word?
The Word of God is Life for the child of God.
The Scripture reveals that we live by the Word that comes from the Mouth of God (Matthew 4:4). This means, physical bread alone is not what sustains human survival. If life was left only for the eating of bread, there were people who had already died that should have been alive by now; they shouldn’t have died because they ate very well. In fact, for some people, it was the over-eating of food (bread) that killed them. So, there is more to human life than physical food. And that is called the Word of God.
It is important therefore to know that the Word of God is a sustainer of life. The Word of God carries life (John 6:63).
Now, I give you one effect of God’s Word on the life of the child of God.
a. Spiritual life vibrancy is guaranteed by a steady diet of the Word of God (Matthew 4:4).
The Word of God facilitates the vibrancy of spirituality. Spirituality is at risk where the Word is in short supply.
Beloved, my counsel is, give the Word of God priority attention in your life, even above your necessary food. Be determined to feed on the Word daily (Job 23:12).
Remember This: Spirituality is at risk where the Word is in short supply.
Make demands on the grace to connect with the Life in God’s Word as you study the Word.
Give priority to the Word of God in your life.

PRAYER: Lord, I receive the Life in Your Word as I study Your Word. Let everything not working in my life begin to work by virtue of the Life in Your Word, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
DAILY BIBLE READING: Psalm 73-75
QUOTE: The quality and quantity of truth in your spirit determines the immunity and security of your life and destiny. Culled from “22 LAWS OF LIFE” (VOL. 2) by Dr Paul Enenche.
REFLECTION: What do you feed on first on a daily basis, the bread of life, the Word of God, or the bread of the flesh? Do you have appetite for physical food when you have not fed on spiritual food? What you do first in the day affects how the rest of the day goes.
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: Fresh appetite for the Word is released upon you now in Jesus’ Name.
