Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”
Just like bread (food) supports life to your body, the Word of God supports life to your soul. Your body can’t go too long without nourishment and without food for prolonged periods your body becomes weak. It’s the same for your soul, without regular nourishment your soul too will become weak. You don’t just eat on Sunday, why would you only feed your soul one day out of the week? Nourish your soul by reading the Word of God daily.
But the time is coming, indeed it’s here now, when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth. The Father is looking for those who will worship Him that way.
God is looking for people who will worship Him with passion, with their heart and soul. But that’s not all, it must also be in truth. Truth comes from the certainty in knowing who God is. The more we know who God is the more genuine our worship becomes. As you begin to worship God in spirit and in truth you will be transformed by His grace. Worship changes everything!
My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power.
It’s not always about the words we use when we try to tell people about Jesus that matters. It’s often about the way we live for God that makes the most difference. Sometimes actions do speak louder than words. Whether you know it or not, people are watching you and they see the changes in you that only Christ can make.
For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.
Forgiveness is a key element when you come to God in prayer, not only God forgiving you but you forgiving others. When you hold on to blame in your heart it creates an environment of bitterness and an unforgiving spirit will block your spiritual progress. Sometimes you have to forgive others for your own peace of mind and sometimes you just have to forgive yourself.
May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.
I want my words and thoughts to be pleasing to God in all circumstances. Not only when I pray or think about godly things but also in my everyday conversations and thoughts. I want to fill my mind and heart with positivity so there will be no room for negativity.
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
Do you ever feel so tired, you just don’t have the energy or motivation to do anything and so you do the least amount possible just to get by? Are you mentally, emotionally, and physically wiped out? God will give you rest; he will refresh your spirit if you come to him and lay your burdens at his feet.
