But Jesus answered, “The scripture says, ‘Human beings cannot live on bread alone, but need every word that God speaks.’” (Matthew 4:4 GNT)
Today’s focal verse is one of my favorite verses in the entire Bible because it’s a very powerful reminder of how vital it is for us to not only partake of the word of God everyday, but to savor, revel in, and meditate upon the truth of its promises to us.
I also love the AMP version of today’s focal verse as well because it adds a bit more depth which makes the words of Jesus a bit more personal to us.
But Jesus replied, “It is written and forever remains written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes out of the mouth of God.’” (Matthew 4:4 AMP)
I’m a genuine lover of the Bible and I have just been lingering in and enjoying it almost every single day for the last 11 years. However, as 2019 was starting to come to a close, The Lord really started to deeply impress upon my heart how necessary it was going to be to truly feast upon and stay rooted in the word of God in days ahead. I had many nights where The Lord would wake me up in the middle of the night and give me a specific verse or passage of scripture to meditate on for that day. And so, all of 2020, I just consumed the word every single day.
That was such a game changer for me because in doing that, I had SO many “selah moments”. Moments where I was just able to intentionally pause, intimately reflect upon, and truly internalize the word of God. And as I did that, SO many of God’s promises took root in my heart and just began to blossom and come alive in my life in ways that I could have never dreamed or imagined.
I share this with you guys because I know that if you were to do the same, you would begin to foster and cultivate this new hunger, appreciation, faith in, and love for God’s word as you witness His promises come to fruition in your own lives.
I leave you with this verse to pause and reflect upon… What a God you are! Your path for me has been perfect! All your promises have proven true. What a secure shelter for all those who turn to hide themselves in You! You are the wrap-around God giving grace to me. (Psalm 18:30 TPT)
Hide yourself in His word and you will partake of His promises.
And don’t for a minute let this Book of The Revelation be out of mind. Ponder and meditate on it day and night, making sure you practice everything written in it. Then you’ll get where you’re going; then you’ll succeed. (Joshua 1:8 MSG)

Sunday Soul Kiss Kingdom Creative/Entrepreneur Spotlight Of The Week
This week’s Sunday Soul Kiss spotlight shines on Lyn Joyfull who is a beautiful woman of God and CEO of Love Yourself Jewelry.
I bought the beautiful mystic rainbow topaz ring that you see above from Lyn last year in July and not only did I receive the ring that I bought, but The Lord impressed it upon Lyn’s heart to also send me an amazing prophetic word and a sterling silver band with “I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine…” engraved on it. That is from the Song of Solomon 6:3. The Song of Solomon is my favorite book in the Bible because a few years ago I had several supernatural encounters with God that were directly from the Song of Solomon after The Lord had me camp out in that particular book for about 4 years. But just to show you how The Lord works, you would have to be very close to me to know that and I had never met Lyn.
