John 4:24 (KJV)
24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
God’s Word is spirit food because God is a Spirit and we are told to worship Him in spirit and in truth. But, I ask you, what is spirit food? It’s the Word of God spoken by Him for our life.
However, the sad truth is that most of the Christian Church is dying of malnutrition! How can God raise up an army of soldiers who are nutritionally weak? We need to eat the Word of God so that we can be His overcoming, empowered army, taking back our nation and the world.
Think about it – what army goes to war in a state of malnutrition? It won’t work. They must be fed the right diet and exercise to grow and be strong. If all they ate was fast food and dessert, how healthy would they be? No one can sustain a vital vibrant life living on dessert and fast food!
If you don’t feed your spirit, your mind won’t be renewed and you’ll be no better off than the unsaved except you’ll still be saved but defeated in life.
Living a defeated life hurts your witness and brings reproach to the Name of Jesus because people won’t be drawn to the Lord because of your defeated life. Who wants to be like that!
Brothers and sisters, it behooves us to feed on God’s Word daily so that we can renew our minds to His word and be empowered to do the great exploits that He has for us. How do you think we’re going to fulfill John 14:12? By finding out who we really are in the Lord and becoming the mighty people of God He’s ordained us to be!
Matthew 4:4 (KJV) 4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

Romans 12:2 (KJV) 2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Ephesians 4:23 (KJV) 23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;
Daniel 11:32b (KJV) 32 … but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.
