Question of the day: John 4:31-33 "Meanwhile, the disciples were pressing Him, 'Rabbi, eat!' But He said to them, I have food to eat that you know nothing about." So the disciples were saying to each other, 'No one brought Him food to eat, did they?'"
Answer: John 4:34 Yeshua tells them, "My food is to do the will of the One who sent Me and to accomplish His work."
The disciples had gone into Shechem in Samaria to get some food for themselves and to bring food back to Yeshua. What was this "food" the disciples didn't know about? Yeshua explained that He is sustained by doing the will of the Father.
And so are we. We are sustained, nourished, fulfilled, and satisfied by doing God's will. It all goes back to this ... Matthew 6:10b "Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven." And to do God's will, we have to lay our own selfish will aside. We submit to (place ourselves under) the will of God.
"It's a heart thang!" God wants our hearts. When He has our hearts, He provides every need. Philippians 4:19 "My God will fulfill every need of yours according to the riches of His glory in Messiah Yeshua." And there is also this ... 2 Corinthians 9:8 "And God is able to make all grace overflow to you, so that by always having enough of everything, you may overflow in every good work."
When God does anything, it keeps on being done. This is how Yeshua could truthfully say ... John 6:35 "Yeshua said to them, 'I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to Me will never be hungry, and whoever believes in Me will never be thirsty.'" This is really the gift that keeps on giving (despite what you may have heard in the Christmas Story movie). Receive Him and receive His blessings. He gave His body and blood 2,000 years ago on Calvary and that blessing is still sustaining us now and forever, amen.
