Day 23 // May 8
“Nothing will supply the needs, and satisfy the desires of a soul, but water out of this rock Jesus…this fountain opened. The pleasures of sense are puddle-water; spiritual delights are rock water, so pure, so clear, and so refreshing — rivers of pleasure.” Matthew Henry
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 (Deuteronomy 8:3).
Let’s pray this together:
Father, we are so thankful for Your promises. Your Word declares to us that if we hunger and thirst for righteousness, we will be filled. We don’t want to be a people who live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds from Your mouth. We pray that you would help us to freshly cultivate a true, authentic hunger to live a righteous life before You and others that men may see our good works and glorify our Father in heaven.
