January 27 – Day 13: Tabernacle Prayers
The Table of Shewbread represents a sacrifice to God, it also represents the importance of nutrition. There are a number of instances in the Bible where bread is referenced: if you work, you will eat bread (Genesis 3:19); man shall not live by bread alone (Matthew 4:4); and, give us this day our daily bread (Matthew 6:11). Once you accept Jesus, you can know that he is the bread of life, and you will never be hungry again.
Jesus replied, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry again. Whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.” (John 6:35).
THE TABLE OF SHEWBREAD – THE WORD OF GOD
We feed ourselves in the natural world every day because our bodies need nourishment. In the same way, we need to feed our spirit. By reading God’s Word we continually provide ourselves with spiritual nutrition. Think of other ways that you could feed yourself spiritually.
Today, thank God for his Word. Ask him to show you Scripture that will nourish your Spirit and encourage you in your journey towards loving him more deeply and praying more often.

What ways will you feed yourself spiritually?
