I like what Martin Luther King said. “If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”

When Elijah had been used by God on Mt. Carmel to call fire down from heaven, this spiritual high was followed by persecution and melancholy (melancholy definition: a gloomy state of mind, esp. when habitual or prolonged; depression). In response to Elijah’s depression, God sent an angel to provide food, drink, and rest for the weary prophet. The sustaining power of that food from heaven was extraordinarily miraculous.

1 Kings 19:8 “So he arose, and ate and drank; and he went in the strength of that food forty days and forty nights as far as Horeb, the mountain of God”

—heavenly honey, angel eggs, BBQ’D quail and let’s not leave out desert, chocolate covered locust and angel food cake, — Yum Yum, finger Lickin good—!

Just as we also need food to sustain our physical lives, we also need nourishing food for our spiritual lives. God’s Word is “sweeter . . . than honey and the honeycomb” (Ps. 19:10) and feeds our souls. It makes “wise the simple” (v.7) and provides both nourishment and energy for life’s long journey.

Matthew 4:4 Food sustains the physical body; God’s word sustains the spirit of man.
John 4:31-34 Genuine food originates from the will of God; it truly satisfies.
1 Peter 2:1-3 Our desires should be toward spiritual food, instead of just filling our bellies.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 God’s word can make us complete, fulfilling every aspect of life.
Psalm 19:7-11 Respect the word of God as having a sweetness far greater than anything.

God’s Word provides us with the nourishment that every Christian needs in order to grow; supplying strength from day to day by teaching what we need to know.

Food for Thought:  God feeds us through His Word. Take the time to get you some today, go ahead fill up, second, thirds go back as much as you like. No calories, no caffeine, no preservatives, no cholesterol, no fat, no sodium just 100% good for you.
