Live The Life God Designed For You

Beth Jones

"But He answered and said, It is written, 'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.'" Matthew 4:4, NKJV

How can we be sure we are living smack dab in the center of God’s will? Is it possible? Yes, it is! Jesus told us how to do it. Let’s break this verse from Matthew 4...

Man Shall Not Live By Bread Alone: According to Strong’s Concordance, the idea of living is to enjoy real life, to have true life, to be full of vigor, to be fresh and strong. It denotes the idea of an active, blessed life. Although physical food is necessary to sustain life, it’s not enough to give us true life. We can eat all day long and still not enjoy real life. If our hearts and minds are in unrest, dissatisfied or in turmoil we are not enjoying real life. Jesus wants us to live!

But By Every Word That Proceeds From the Mouth of God: We are to live the true life, the real life, by words that proceed from God’s mouth. The word “word” is the Greek word rhema and it means that which is uttered by the living voice, the thing spoken. The word “proceeds” means to go forth, to depart or to flow forth from God’s mouth. In other words, when God’s living words flow forth from His mouth to our hearts – we should live by them!

So how does this work in real life? How can we live smack dab in the center of God's will?

In order to live the life God has designed for us, we must hear from Him. We must hear His words and follow them. It’s that simple. Man lives by the words that proceed from His mouth. When we do that there is great safety, security, confidence and assurance. 

What if you are at a crossroads or need direction? What if you don’t know what to do? The best thing to do is spend time with the Lord and His Word and ask Him to speak to you. Ask Him for words of direction, wisdom or insight to proceed from His mouth to your heart. Then, when He speaks to you from, or in line with His Word – live by it. You can trust His rhema words!

Today, if you need direction, wisdom, security, confidence or guidance – take time to get with God and discern the living words that have proceeded from God’s mouth to your heart. Don’t live by bread and butter, but live by the rhema word of God to your heart!

Say This: “Father, thank You for speaking living ‘rhema’ words to my heart. I will live by them! In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”
