2 Minutes - SILENCE, STILLNESS AND CENTERING WITH GOD
31 Meanwhile his disciples urged him, “Rabbi, eat something.” 32 But he said to them, “I have food to eat that you know nothing about.”
33 Then his disciples said to each other, “Could someone have brought him food?”
34 “My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will of him who sent me and to nish his work.
Food is a gift from God. Jesus told his followers to pray for their daily bread. To the writers of Scripture, food is concrete evi- dence that God is present and providing for us.
Jesus also said that we do “not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.” As our bodies are fed by food, so our spirits are fed by words with ideas and images. We are ooded by words that can mislead us, so we need to feed our minds each day from the Word of God.
I often feed my mind by taking a thought from Scripture:
- Nothing can separate us from the love of God
- I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me
- God is light, and in him is no darkness at all (GICTYT, 70-71)
What would it be like to feast on the Word of God throughout the day?
