John 6:51, 55-56 I am the living bread that came down from
heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever. For My flesh is real food and My blood is real drink. Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood remains in me and I in him.
Read John 6.
Throughout the Bible we are shown God's provision for our
physical and spiritual needs. He gave Jesus as the Passover Lamb. The Israelites ate the lamb prior to leaving Egypt. The Lord gave them manna in the wilderness to sustain their bodies. Through His miracles, He gave them spiritual food to sustain their eternal needs. They weren't satisfied with
either. They wanted more.
We are, in the same way, given all we need through the Word of God to supply all our spiritual needs. We have been given a banqueting table to feast. We are given a balanced diet of promises. Some are given with conditions. Some are unconditional. Our salvation comes with the condition of
acceptance and repentance. He promises that He will never leave us nor forsake us. (Deut 31:8, Heb 13:5)
A good clue to the type of God's promises is the word "if". 2 Chron 7:14 says "If My people... God promised to heal our land "if" His people would repent and return to Him. For a small word, it has a powerful effect.
God is a God of balance. He is not a Santa Claus that we give our list of "needs" and demand He supply them. He is not a God of vengeance that demands we give our lives for nothing. He is a God of such deep love that He gave His most precious gift, His Son, for us. He is a God that desires
the best for us. Sometimes, it seems He is far away but He is as close as our hearts and minds and souls.
His word is a banqueting table that supplies all our needs. When we dine on His word, we are given the whole armor of God to supply our immune system. He gives us the stripes on the back of Jesus for our healing. We are encouraged eat of the Bread of Life. We are given the New Wine to comfort us. We are given the Living Water to quench our thirst.
Jesus said to us, "Come and dine." Ps 34:8 tells us to taste and see that the Lord is good. He is offering us a table of bounty. We don't take advantage of what is offered.
If you find it difficult to partake and understand, pray for understanding. Luke 24:45 Then He opened their minds so they could understand the scriptures. He did not give us His word so that we could not benefit from it. He wants to supply all our needs. He loves us.
