Today Reminder - 24 January 2013 (Bread of life)

A reminder for today
Remember how the LORD your God led you through the wilderness for these forty years, humbling you and testing you to prove your character, and to find out whether or not you would obey His commands. Yes, He humbled you by letting you go hungry and then feeding you with manna, a food previously unknown to you and your ancestors. He did it to teach you that people do not live by bread alone; rather, we live by every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD. (Deuteronomy 8:2-3)

Bread of life:

Are you in a wilderness in your life at the moment? Do you feel that your character is being tested as you are burdened with trials? Remember that God does not leave you. He stands by your side through every moment of every day. We sometimes need to go through character tests to build us and to prepare us for what lies ahead. God put the Israelite people through a forty year character test and although your trails could feel like a forty year wilderness test it is important that you remain humble and faithful.

The greatest lesson that God needs us to learn is being humbly dependent on Him and that we will learn that we do not live by bread alone; rather, we live by every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD. The word of God is our true food and powers our Spirit so that we can face these trials and succeed showing God that we are more than capable to face whatever lies ahead.

My dear friend, here is your salvation. Jesus replied, "I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry again. Whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.” (John 6:35) Jesus is the way, the true life force that will carry you through. Stand tall and let the storms come. You are an indestructible force with an unlimited supply of strength from an all-powerful God.

I pray that your strength will be renewed and that your character will stand through the trials that lie ahead and that you will humbly live on the bread of live, the Word of God, in Jesus name. 

You remain in my prayers my dear friend. I am with you through your difficult moments, I am right beside you holding you up, I will not let you fall – says the Lord our God.

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus
