Have you ever gone out to an all you can eat restaurant? There is one here in New York called the Old Country Buffet and you may have something like it in your state. The first time I went there it was so much food I was stunned to the point that I couldn’t eat much because I was so overwhelmed at the large assortment of food. The bible is like that to me. When you pick up that big book and thumb through it…it’s so overwhelming with all of its information…but when you take your time and study it you can really feast on it. It is the bread of life and you can eat from it and be nourished by it for your entire life! Matthew 4:4 Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.”
The words from the bible will also stick to you. The bible says to hide the word of God in our heart and this is a big clue on how we should handle Gods word. As we live our lives…the Holy Spirit will remind us of God’s words and His word will help us live our lives and be strengthened and guided by it in a miraculous way. There is no other book on earth that has this kind of incredible power!!! It’s not the paper or the ink…but Gods word on those precious pages that gives the power.
Message for today: You are not alone…you are not without help…God has provided everything we need to make it in this life! The bible gives us hope for a great future!
