DEVO 05.24.24




EVERY WORD

“Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.”

(Deuteronomy 8:3 )



- Yesterday we preached in our first 2 villages in Kenya.

- People listened as we taught from Genesis to Revelation… ALL day!

- They were eager to learn!

- At the end of the day they would receive a Bible in their language, if they signed up for one.

- We were delivering hundreds of Bibles.

- The most shocking image I have stuck in my head is one young man who came and sat next to me during the preaching and was begging me for a Bible.

- His name was not on the list to receive it and he didn’t have the money for one.

- I was ready to buy him a whole box of Bibles, but people had to be on the list.

- There is more than one language here and they needed the Bible in their language.

- He kept after me when I went back to the van and I had to send him through the proper process.

- I didn’t want to mess up their system.

- I directed him to the proper person who could help him.

- Then after we had distributed the Bibles and were driving on the way home, we passed him as we were driving down the road.

- It was almost as if my whole world went into slow motion.

- Amidst all the traffic, I spotted him.

- He was walking with his Bible open and reading as he walked along the road.

- It was just like he was texting and walking except he was reading his Bible and consumed with it!

- He was hungry for the Word of God.

- This brought new understanding to me that this man “lives by every word that comes from the mouth of God.”

- To be alive means to be reading, knowing and following the Word of God.

- I don’t think I am going to be the same when I come back!

- Have a great Friday!
