“Your words were found and I ate them, And Your words became for me a joy and the delight of my heart; For I have been called by Your name, O Lord God of hosts.”
Jeremiah 15:16 NASB
Jesus is the word made flesh.
And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14 NASB
Jesus is the bread of life.
Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me will never thirst. John 6:35 NASB
God calls us to grace and mercy found and granted by Him alone. Called unto salvation. Called to a loving relationship with Him. Called to obedience that exudes out of our love for Him.
Are you missing the joy and delight of the Lord? If so, could it be that you are starving yourself?
He said to me, “Son of man, feed your stomach and fill your body with this scroll which I am giving you.” Then I ate it, and it was sweet as honey in my mouth. Ezekiel 3:3 NASB
The word of God is important to our spiritual health. Without the word to nourish our souls we are walking a misdirected path in weakness and Ill health. Just as our physical bodies need nourishment so does our spiritual bodies.
Let us not neglect the importance of God’s word. Feed in it daily. Chew on it throughout the day.
God’s word keeps us on the straight and narrow.
“I have not departed from the command of His lips; I have treasured the words of His mouth more than my necessary food.
Job 23:12 NASB
“How sweet are Your words to my taste! Yes, sweeter than honey to my mouth!” Psalms 119:103 NASB
Feast on His word everyday. Not only will they be sweet to the soul but you will get to know just how sweet our Lord is.
