The Lord has been speaking to me about the deeper meaning of these words, “Man does not live by bread alone, but man lives by everything that proceeds out of the mouth of the LORD.” Deuteronomy 8:3.
Jesus responded to the devil with these same words when He was tempted to turn the stones into bread to satisfy His hunger.
God provides for ALL of our needs at all times and in an abundant fashion. When Moses spoke these words to the Israelites, he reminded them of God’s faithfulness during their 40 years of wandering in the wilderness.
I must live my life in a state of constant dependence on the Lord, but also with unending thanksgiving! He indeed IS everything that I need. He IS the Lord, I can’t make Him Lord. I can’t MAKE Him anything.
What I can do is acknowledge Him, obey Him, and thank Him.
