“Your innermost man is designed to exist on food from Me through the power of My Holy Spirit. It thrives on My Word. It is nourished only in My presence. You can find no nourishment from the things of the world now that you have been formed to exist in My world. You are a new creation. It is about time you recognize that.
"A diet of worldly food starves the spiritual being that you have become. It has no nourishment for who you are becoming in Jesus. Even pre-digested food, food and wisdom from those who know Me, will not sustain you for long. You will become weak and spiritually lethargic in the ways of the Spirit. You need to spend time in My presence. You need to eat at My banquet table. I need you to be fit and ready for My work. Stop eating the things that your inner being sees as junk food. Receive My power from My Spirit. Learn to eat properly from My hand or you will atrophy to My ways.”
John 4:34 NIV
”My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to finish His work.”
John 6:57 AMP
Just as the living Father sent Me and I live by (through, because of) the Father, even so whoever continues to feed on Me [whoever takes Me for his food and is nourished by Me] shall [in his turn] live through and because of Me.
Most Christians today are so busy running after the opinions of others regarding Who God is and what He is saying in these end times, that they have forgotten how to hear from Him themselves. It is easier to read how some Bible expert interprets chapters and verses of the Bible than it is to spend the kind of time necessary to receive the rhema Word in our own spirits from the Holy Spirit.
Unless we have an intimate relationship with the Lord from being with our Lord and in His Word, we will not notice when worldly influences creep in and destroy God’s call to holiness. We will become dry and dead if we continue our pursuit of someone else’s opinion and interpretation. We are invited to come into the presence of the One Who spoke the world into existence because of the blood of Jesus. What could possibly be important or powerful enough to stop us from going there?
Teach me to only value Your opinion, Lord,
