Your words were found, and I ate them, And Your word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart
When your words showed up, I ate them—
Not pleasant to digest, but COMPLETELY NECESSARY!
We don’t like hearing that sex outside of marriage hurts God,
But it does.
We don’t like hearing that jealousy is evil,
but it is.
We don’t like hearing that hate is actually murder,
But it is.
Sometimes His words are knives, and they are meant to cut us, to hurt us, and lead us back to Him.
And sometimes His words bring healing, a soothing balm for our dried, cracked, starving souls.
They bring love when we thought we were unlovable.
They bring mercy to those who thought they had done things beyond repair.
They bring comfort to those who have lost everything else, but Him.
READ HIS WORD TODAY.
Any whatever words He gives us,
May we EAT THEM.
It is an everlasting feast!
But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’ ”
Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give you, because God the Father has set His seal on Him.
