Open Heaven Daily Devotional 20 March 2023

TOPIC: The Word is Food

As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby
1 Peter 2:2

48 I am that bread of life.

49 Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead.

50 This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die.

51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.

Open Heaven Daily Devotional 20 March 2023 MESSAGE

In response to one of the temptations from the devil, our Lord Jesus Christ 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).

It is true that as a human being, you need physical food to survive, but it is also true that your spirit man needs spiritual food to survive and that spiritual food is the word of God. If you don’t eat the word of God, you will be spiritually malnourished and it can lead to spiritual death.

There are many spiritually dead Christians and even Pastors today because they don’t read their Bibles. God’s word will give you life. Jesus Christ said in John 6:63It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

The reason many people are depressed is that they hardly feed on the word of God. The Bible says in Jeremiah 15:16“Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts”.

When you eat the word of God, it strengthens your spirit man and you begin to feel a kind of joy that cannot be explained. Joshua 1:8 says if you want to have good success, then the book of the law must not depart from your mouth; you are to eat the word of God consistently.

Shortly after I got born again, my brethren and I had a slogan: “No Bible, No Breakfast.” We ate the word before we ate physical food. The first thing you must do in the morning is eat the word. You would then be healthy, because the word had already gone in before physical food.

Resolve today to eat the word of God more than you eat physical food.

OPEN HEAVEN 20 MARCH 2023 KEY POINT: Make this your slogan henceforth: “No Bible, No Breakfast”.
