Life Questions – The God Who Speaks Today
These questions are for you to consider carefully and apply to your life. Read Matthew 4:1-4 and think about the following:
1. What do you think the difference is between ‘it is written’ and ‘every word that comes from the mouth of God’?
2. How does God speak to you?
3. What is your spiritual food?

Prayer
Lord, thank you that whenever temptation comes our way, we can always rely on you to help us through. Thank you that you have provided us with something more than just passing earthly pleasures. Help us to seek your word; your will; your guidance; your kingdom; your heart; your spiritual food. Help us understand what that can mean in our lives and how to share it with others. Amen.
