Matthew 4:4, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.”
The Word of God is to your spirit as bread is to your body. When your body feeds on physical food, it produces physical power called strength. When your spirit feeds on spiritual food, the Word, it produces spiritual power called faith. Just as you can’t eat one meal and feed on the memory of it for several weeks and become strong, you can’t just remember what the Word says and stay strong in faith. We can’t get casual about the Word. If you do, you’ll slack off and, one of these days, the devil will catch you unprepared and steal you blind. Remembering the Word isn’t enough. You must continually feed on what it says. Get it out, read it and study it… the verses you’ve read a thousand times. Suddenly God will give you the greatest revelation of it that you’ve never seen before. You can’t get continued results if you don’t spend time in prayer and in the Word of God. Studying it daily allows the Spirit to nourish you. Jesus said “The Words I have spoken to you, they are Spirit and they are Life.”
Cherries - sweet, juicy, delicious cherries!!!
I do enjoy them when they are in season and have been enjoying them thoroughly. Not only are they one of my favourite fruit but they are acclaimed to be a super fruit. They have the highest level of disease fighting antioxidants and contain other important nutrients, as beta carotene (19 times more than blueberries or strawberries), vitamin C, potassium, magnesium, iron, fibre and folate. They ease the pain of arthritis, gout and lower the risk of heart disease, diabetes and certain cancers. They help with memory loss, jet-lag and aging and are a good anti-inflammatory.
