The day an individual stops eating is the day they start dying. Yes you can go several weeks without food because your body will be sustained by the food reserves you have been storing up in the name of fat. Once those reserves are depleted they must be replenished or you will surely die. Your spiritual life will also die if you stop feeding on the word of God. Yes you may be able to sustain yourself through the reserves of the word you have consumed over time but the principle remains. When you stop feeding you eventually die.
Working with God means feeding your spirit on the word of God. It will instruct, inspire, direct, protect and prosper you. You can’t work with God when you are spiritually dead. The word of God gives life and that life causes you to connect with God. Remember God is life. Feed on the Bible so you can continue that glorious work of God going on in your life. Daily replenish your spiritual strength. You can’t do what you don’t know. You can’t give what you don’t have. Stock your spirit with the word and you will do the works of God.
SCRIPTURE READING: Luke 1:26-38 Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. The virgin’s name [was] Mary. And having come in, the angel said to her, “Rejoice, highly favored [one,] the Lord [is] with you; blessed [are] you among women!” But when she saw [him,] she was troubled at his saying, and considered what manner of greeting this was. Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name JESUS. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.” Then Mary said to the angel, “How can this be, since I do not know a man?” And the angel answered and said to her, “[The] Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God. Now indeed, Elizabeth your relative has also conceived a son in her old age; and this is now the sixth month for her who was called barren. For with God nothing will be impossible.” Then Mary said, “Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her.
DEVOTION PRAYER: Heavenly Father, I believe as I continue to feed on your word, am building up my spirit. Your word instructs and protects me at all times. May I yield to your word to live a glorious life. Amen
