EAT WELL AND LIVE -

Eat, Chew and Digest God's Word
 
"Your words were found, and I ate them, and Your word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart; for I am called by Your name…." Jeremiah 15:16, NKJV

Living on the go? Eating strange meals at weird hours? Visiting the fast food joint a little too often? We all have seasons that seem to get us out of our desired routines and healthy habits.  I think we’ve all had the nights, where we work late and eat the "dinner of champions"— a piece of cheese, a box of raisins, a V-8 and a giant cappuccino. Anyone else?

But these little snack-like dinners remind me of how things can be spiritually at times. We get so busy doing things, even worthy things, that we forget to eat the Word!   We snack on a verse here and a verse there, but we get busy and end up treating God's Word like a fast-food operation. I know I have been guilty. On crazy days, we pull up to "the Lord's drive-up window" and ask Him to super-size a verse for us and off we go to our busy lives.

Thankfully, God is merciful and gracious and at times, He does accommodate us in this way. But, we all know for the long-haul, this is no way to eat!

We need a healthy, regular diet of God's Word…loaded with all the spiritual vitamins, nutrients and energy we can get for life and godliness. Today, I hope we are all encouraged and reminded to set aside the time we need to spend with the Lord—eating His Word.

Prayer: "Father, I thank You that Your Word is my bread, honey and milk and contains all the nutritional value I need to operate in life. Help me to manage my time in such a way that I sit down with You to eat regular, healthy meals from Your Word! In Jesus’ Name, Amen."

  2. Hazel, I love the post and truth put into this post. Asking the Lord at His drive-up window to "super size" a Bible verse for the day. Some days we do just catch God's word on the run. I know I need to be better in this area!
