Here is the concluding part of the devotional on Your Operating Manual
…that He might make you know that man shall not live by bread alone; but man lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the LORD.
– Deuteronomy 8:3b
To live connotes an ability to do many things: work, interact, study, transact, pursue, marry, parent, and so on. All of these and much more are encapsulated in the word “live.”
In the passage above, we see the heart of God concerning living and every activity tied to it. God expects us to function by His word. That means He expects us to work, study, interact, pursue, marry, husband, wife, parent, prosper, and so forth in accordance with the instructions He has decreed concerning such in the Holy Bible.
A clergy once described the Bible as “the creator’s manual for maximized living.” Nothing can be truer than that. The Bible contains specific instructions of God concerning every aspect of life. It is interesting to note that the Bible addresses all life issues – marriage, career, business, ministry, relationships, service, leadership, followership, etc. That is why it is always current. No matter the number of times you’ve read it, you still get fresh insights every time you study it. It also remains relevant to various human situations, that is why it is the bestselling book of all time. We only need to make time to study it daily to be apprised with the mind of God concerning our situations and happenings around us.
It is a book of solutions. It contains ageless wisdom that can help you unlock the door to significance on the earth and grant you access to the throne of God in the hereafter. It will help you redeem time and fine-tune your character every time you expose yourself to it. Please ensure you read it every day.
You will succeed in Jesus Name!
