What sustains you?
After eating a meal I feel full and the hunger sensation is no longer present. Spending time in the Scriptures also grants a sense of fullness. When I don't eat for a while I begin to get hungry, so also with reading the Scriptures. There is an almost tangible sense of satisfaction after having feasted on His Word.
And he humbled you and let you hunger and fed you with manna, which you did not know, nor did your fathers know, that he might make you know that man does not live by bread alone, but man lives by every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD.
But he answered, "It is written, "'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.'"
Jesus said to them, "I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.
I am the bread of life. Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died. This is the bread that comes down from heaven, so that one may eat of it and not die. I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever. And the bread that I will give for the life of the world is my flesh."
Are you feasting or are you fasting?
