During my time alone with God last week I had an interesting idea. I had recently read where Jesus said: “Man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.”
I’ve mentioned this in a previous blog, but thought about how I need to chow down on the good stuff daily – the Word of God!
Then I thought about what my trainer has me doing. I eat 5 small meals every day; eating every three hours between 6:30am until 6:30pm. The interesting thought I had was what if I did the same thing with the Word of God. Meditation on a particular passage is nothing new, but I thought wouldn’t it be HEALTHY if I’d take just a few minutes every three hours (when I pause to eat my meal) if I’d also pause to feed on the Word of God.
For me this means meditating on a verse that really spoke to me during my time alone with God in the morning. So what I’m trying to do is think on this verse every 3 hours or so throughout my day and see what God reveals to me through it. You could do this or even stop and read a portion of scripture every three hours. Wouldn’t it be great to feed on “every word that proceeds from the mouth of God” more frequently through your day.
Something to ponder.
