“I am feeding you fresh bread—and from that food will come forth your new sound”.
A few days ago, I had an impression of a brand-new guitar string being tuned. In that instant I knew it was the Holy Spirit breaking into my thoughts.
I saw the tuning peg turning, bringing that string into tension and alignment. It was becoming ready to play a new sound!
Then suddenly, I remembered a long-forgotten incident.
“There’s Wire in the Bread!”
It happened in the 1990’s.
One day, I picked up a bread loaf, and was removing a slice to feed our children, when I noticed something odd.
A wire was threaded through some of the pieces of bread.
So, I reported it to the bread manufacturer, who quickly took away the remaining loaf and wire, to test it.
They later reported that the wire was a guitar string. The company was mystified as to how that wire could have gotten into the bread.
I remember that around that time, my husband Malcolm had replaced his own guitar strings. And I wondered if a piece of his string had inexplicably become threaded through our loaf of bread.
Yet, the wire in the loaf was as though it had been baked in there.
Now 20 years later, the Holy Spirit was bringing this forgotten memory back to mind.
Suddenly, I heard the Father say, “I am feeding you fresh bread and from that food will come forth your new sound”
“You are About to Receive a Supernatural Supply”
This is a word that is going to resonate with many today! I believe it is on the Father’s heart right now, to bring strength and comfort, especially to those who are weary.
He says, “I have fresh bread for you!” You can anticipate receiving:
- Fresh insights from Scripture that will not only be food to your soul—they will be a supply from which you will feed many others
- Life-giving, personal encounters with God with a renewed sense of commissioning.
He says, “I have a new sound for you!”
When a guitar’s strings need replacing, they sound dull and flat. But with new strings, the sound is bright, clear and renewed.
Your new sound is about to break forth!
3 Bible Stories in Which a New Sound was Released with Fresh Bread!
1. Fresh Bread in the Place of Hardship and Loss
The name Bethlehem means “house of bread”. Yet in the book of Ruth, we learn of a time in which the township experienced famine.
When God visited them with harvest, there was fresh bread in the “house of bread” again! As a result, a sound went out. That testimony of God’s goodness reached the ears of a grieving widow called Naomi.
“Then she arose with her daughters-in-law that she might return from the country of Moab, for she had heard in the country of Moab that the LORD had visited His people by giving them bread.”
(Ruth 1:6 NKJV)
When that sound reached Naomi, she set out on a journey with her daughter-in-law Ruth. It was time for their destiny to unfold.
2. Fresh Bread in the Place of Exhaustion and Spiritual Warfare
Elijah was on the run from wicked Jezebel and her threats. It was a low time in Elijah’s life, and he was completely exhausted.
But a miracle was about to happen.
God sent an angel to give him freshly baked hot bread and drink.
‘All at once an angel touched him and said, “Get up and eat.” He looked around, and there by his head was some bread baked over hot coals, and a jar of water. He ate and drank and then lay down again.’ (1 Kings 19:5-6, NIV)
At one of his lowest points, God gave the prophet Elijah supernatural strength and replenishment.
From there, Elijah ran 40 days and nights to a place of appointment with God.
There at Mount Horeb, sheltered in a cave, Elijah heard the sound of God—whispering his new commission.
3. Fresh Bread in the Place of Failure
It was after the resurrection and the disciples had already encountered their risen Lord! Yet there was still something lacking for Peter.
Some unfinished business.
Peter may have been still uncertain as to his future direction, after his denial of Jesus at the crucifixion.
And in a moment—perhaps of restlessness—Peter called on some other disciples to go fishing with him. (John 21)
It was a long weary night, with no fish to be found. Until a man on the shoreline called out, “cast your net over the right side of the boat and you will find some.”
Struggling with a multitude of fish now filling their net, they realized Jesus was the man.
He was waiting with bread, and had fish already cooking!
Over fresh bread and fish, Jesus restored Peter and gave him his new commissioning.
And Peter heard the words, “Feed my lambs…Tend my sheep…Feed my sheep…Follow me.”
Fresh bread. A supernatural harvest. Redemption. And a new sound.
Peter was about to rise into his apostleship.
Your Father has “Fresh Bread” for You
Some of you have been wondering if you are ‘wrong’ in some way, but your Father wants you to know, “I am with you!”
And if you can relate to any of the above scenarios today, be encouraged: your Heavenly Father has fresh bread for you.
He also has a new sound.
Your life is, and will be, a testimony of His redeeming power. Lift up your eyes and see Jesus with fresh bread from Heaven.
