Now when the tempter came to Him, he said, "If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread." But [Jesus] answered and said, "It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’" (Matthew 4:3-4 NKJV)

I would like to have a good name and reputation, based on being blameless. If my integrity suffers false accusation, I want to be vindicated. The words of another will be more compelling than my own to defend me. Yet in the end, I need to be justified only in the eyes of God. If the Lord Jesus—God’s Word made flesh—has vindicated me by His blood, I am without condemnation. The Word that gives eternal life feeds my soul more surely than bread feeds my body.

Father, I can live without bread, but I cannot live without Your Word. Thank You for providing my sustenance. Thank You for the immense satisfaction I receive from feeding upon it.
