At our Midweek Prayer Meeting which is Day 4 of our Ten Days of Prayer Series, we talked about the Table of Showbread, a furniture in the Holy Place of the Earthly Sanctuary. The bread points to Jesus who Himself said “I am the Bread of Life. He that comes to Me shall never hunger and he that believes on me shall never thirst.” John 6:35
As the bread was kept ever before the presence of the Lord, so we must eat every day of this bread for our nourishment and strength. The disciples didn’t understand when Jesus said they needed to eat His flesh and drink His blood. Of course He was referring to His words as He explains in verse 63: “It is the spirit that gives life; the flesh profits nothing: the words that I have spoken unto you, they are spirit and they are life.”
We need to ask God to give us an appetite for the Word of God. For when we regularly partake of this spiritual bread, our character develops and gets formed according to His likeness. And what is more, it helps us in our fight against the devil. The material below shows what happens to the enemy when we get serious with our Bible study.
When you carry a Bible…the devil gets a headache.
When you open it…he collapses.
When he sees you reading it…he faints.
When he sees you living it…he flees.
Let us spend time with the Word. Let us carry one all the time, open and read it everyday and live out its principles in our lives; and let the enemy of our souls get a headache, callapse, faint and finally flee from us.
