True Satisfaction

Topic: True Satisfaction

Scripture Reading: Deuteronomy 8:1-3, Mat 6:25

Main Text
Deuteronomy 8:3

'So He humbled you, allowed you to hunger, and fed you with manna which you did not know nor did your fathers know, that He might make you know that man shall not live by bread alone; but man lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the Lord.'

God never permits any tribulation to befall His children, which He does not design to turn to their advantage. When He permits us to hunger, it is that His mercy may be the more observable in providing us with the necessaries of life.

God provided the Israelites in the wilderness with manna, and when they came into the land of Canaan. His word came to assure them that it wasn't enough to live by corporeal food only, but by obedience to the commands of God, by means of which they should continue under his protection, which was indeed their case; not that man does not live in his body only by bread, but in his soul also by the word of God, and the doctrines of it, which is certainly true; spiritual men live a spiritual life on Christ, the Word of God, and bread of life, and on the Gospel and the truths of it, the wholesome words of our Lord Jesus, and are nourished up with the words of faith and sound doctrine, by means of which their spiritual life is supported and maintained.

It is not nature which nourishes man, but God the Creator by and through nature: and generally that God is not tied to the particular channels (“bread only,” i. e. the ordinary means of earthly sustenance) through which He is usually pleased to work.

We ought not, therefore, to fix our dependance, as we are prone to do, on natural causes, but to remember that we depend, absolutely, entirely, and immediately, on Him for life and all things.

Prayer:
Heavenly Father, thank You for Your word which truly satisfies my soul in Jesus' name. Amen

Have a fruitful week!
Shalom
