Mark 2:24 to 26 (NIV) ~ He answered, “Have you never read what David did when he and his companions were hungry and in need? In the days of Abiathar the high priest, he entered the house of God and ate the consecrated bread, which is lawful only for priests to eat. And he also gave some to his companions.”

Mark 2:24 to 26 (NIV) ~ He answered, “Have you never read what David did when he and his companions were hungry and in need? In the days of Abiathar the high priest, he entered the house of God and ate the consecrated bread, which is lawful only for priests to eat. And he also gave some to his companions.” 

Three times in the gospels this story is mentioned, which draws your attention to how important this parable is to everyone who hears or reads about it. If you read just one more verse you will hear Jesus say, “The Sabbath was made for man not man for the Sabbath.” Not only was Jesus talking about the Sabbath, but He was also taking about your needs being met within the house of your heavenly Father. 

This story of David has its origins in 1 Samuel 21:1 to 9, where David ate the bread and received a sword for battle ahead. Whatever mission from God you may find yourself on, in His house is where you receive bread from God and the best Armour for the battle that stands ahead of you. It is within your Father’s house you go to find all you need for every area of your life. 

My friend, are you hungry and in need? Then go to Jesus Christ who will supply all your needs. Do you hunger for more of God? Then go to the Father and He will satisfy your need and give you more then you can ever ask or think. Go to the Father’s house and find within the Word become flesh, find the sword of the Spirit, the most powerful Armour with which to fight the enemy and overcome every time. Are you sent by God, are you on a mission from the King? Then when he sends you He will anoint you, appoint you, feed you and He will also equip you. 

God bless you my friend, Matthew
