If You Were Hurngry Wouldn't You Ask For Food to Eat?

What is food?
food [fuːd]n
1. (Life Sciences & Allied Applications / Biology) any substance containing nutrients, such as carbohydrates, proteins, and fats, that can be ingested by a living organism and metabolized into energy and body tissue
2. (Cookery) nourishment in more or less solid form as opposed to liquid form food and drink
3. anything that provides mental nourishment or stimulus food for thought
Today we would be looking at this subject of course in a spiritual perspective.
What is  the spiritual food?
The Word of God and any thing that comes from it.
Who is spiritual  food for?
Hungry Christians.
Who is a hungry Christian?
A Christian that is craving to know more about the things of God.
Who is God?
Elohim (אֱלהִים) is a plural formation of eloah, the latter being an expanded form of the Northwest Semitic noun il (אֱל, ʾēl [1]). It is the usual word for "god" in the Hebrew Bible, referring with singular verbs both to the one God of Israel God the Father+The son (Jesus Christ)+The Holy spirit=One God
First of all let us examine ourselves... As we naturally desire for food when we are hungry, do we feel as hungry for the things of God?If not something is wrong with our spiritual life.
First, there must be a healthy appetite.Healthy appetite and diet leads to a healthy life!
What disrupts ours Sprititual appetite?
*The Holy Spirit being absent from your life or you not allowing him to work in your life!Thats one of the main reasons.
*Tv,computer and generally anything that has to do with the media
*Books,Novels,and things in general that have nothing to do with the things of God
*Physical & spiritual tiredness/weekness
*The pleasures of this world
*Our sinful nature,the devil and his co-workers
What happens when you don't eat?
-> lack of food->malnourishment->deficiencies->starvation->suffering/pain->death.
Second, there must be suitable food: “Desire the sincere milk of the Word that ye may grow thereby” (1 Peter 2:2).Today you might be sitting all day on the tv looking at christian sermons,reading a christian book and such and gain nothing!Why?Because some preachers don't teach the truth and what God want you to know from his word.The bible is not only about prosperity preaching and candy coated sermons.The word of God is as sharp as sword!And in order for the word of God to cut out the things in your life that are out of order, you must hear the truth that comes from the word of God which few preachers teach...and truth hurths.We need someone who can teach and deliver the sincere milk of the word of God.A spirit filled,matured and Man/Woman of God especially those who are still babies in the things of God.
-Babies drink milk
-Children eat food
-old men can eat bones
Third, there must be proper mastication.In proper mastication the food is duly mixed with our saliva, which is a provision of nature for aiding digestion, and it is the hurried gulping down of our food which prevents this. Now the counterpart of this in connection with spiritual nourishment is, that in order for the Word of God to do us good it must be mixed with faith.John 20:29-Jesus said to him, “Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” (ESV)
Fourth,ask for the blessings of God,ask him to give you your daily bread & thank him  for it as Jesus Christ did-Matthew 6:11 Give us this day our daily bread,''- Matthew 14:19 “And looking up to Heaven, He blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to His disciples”
And the most important  develop your personal relationship with the Holy Spirit because without him reading the word of God,praying, doing the things of God, will just be another one routine.But let him do this throught you and let God accept your offering as a living sacrifice.
