Man’s life is not sustained by the provision he requires or receives; it is sustained by the words spoken by God.
Bible Reading: Ex 16:11-28; Matt 4:4
When you go through the wilderness experience and find yourself surrounded by myriads of challenges and pressures, you are likely to be tuned into the survival mode.
Survival mode is when you are not living the life you are meant to but you are only mindful of seeing your needs met. This is life at the lowest rung of life’s ladder, even according to Maslow’s hierarchy of need.
The natural belief is that the basic needs must first be met because man can pursue higher purpose, but this is why the greater percentage of human population live at the lowest level of the rung in social ladder. This is the commonest way to live and it is not in accordance with God’s plan. Those who have made serious meaning in life are those who learnt to look beyond the needs to something higher beckoning at them.
God wants us to be purposeful and mindful of the high calling upon your life. I prefer to call it high calling because it is not a scheme structured on earth; it is the plan of God already settled in heaven.
God wants you to know that Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word from His mouth. The word bread is used of food or provision in general. Man’s life is not sustained by the provision he requires or receives; it is sustained by the word spoken by God.
You are more than the material body – you are a living soul designed to fulfil particular purposes on earth.
