Pray for hunger pains

“Man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD” ┬áDeuteronomy 8:3 (NIV)

I can relate to food illustrations in the Bible. When I was a teenager, my jaws would literally get tired from chewing before I would got full.

Lately, my new favorite show is called “Man vs. Food”. This guy travels around finding these amazing restaurants. He watches them cook their best dish, and then he eats it. Sound boring? Not for me! I will buy the “Man vs. Food” tee shirt, bumper sticker, and lunch box when it comes out.

So, when God tells me that studying and living by His words is like eating food, I can relate. And when I think of passing up a meal, I deeply (‘hunger painfully’) understand how I am missing out on what I need to survive daily.


Heaven Father, keep me hungry for Your words. Nourish me so I can develop stronger, wiser, and internally healthier. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
