During the European Renaissance of the 14th–17th centuries, the Age of Reasons, the French philosopher and mathematician René Descartes (1596 –1650) said this, ““I think, therefore I am; or I am thinking, therefore I exist or I do think, therefore I do exist”
We simply rephrase what Descartes said as “You are what you think”, and that belongs to the Renaissance. What about in this place and age in North America as we look around? It is “You are what you eat”
We agree that we are engaged in various extents with both “You are what you think” and “You are what you eat”. But what is the best way to handle “thinking” and “eating”? God through Moses gave the Israelites the following instruction regarding “thinking” and “eating” when they were ready for their entrance into Canaan, the Promised Land:
Deuteronomy 8:3, “He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your ancestors had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord.
Jesus Christ also reinstated this instruction to his followers in Matthew 4:4.
Matthew 4:4, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God (the Bible).”
What is the power of God’s word (the Bible)? It is life as Jesus explains;
John 6:63, “It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh (worldliness) profits nothing; the words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life.”
