But one doesn’t have to travel the world for food options because American fare has no lack of possibilities. In fact being a “foodie” has become a hobby to many these days. We are drawn to what looks good, what foods are trending, and what our taste buds are craving. Food makes us satisfied, and food makes us happy.
We have made food a priority in our daily life
Very few of us need to be reminded to eat. Most of us eat three meals a day with snacks in between. The only time we go without food is when we avoid it for dietary or intentional reasons such as fasting.
I love the wording of Jeremiah in the Bible when he said, “Thy words were found, and I did eat them.” Are we eating the Word of God like we are eating our food for the day? Too many of us grab a quick on-the-go verse or maybe even a chapter and think that will sustain us. In fact, we feel pretty good about our quick devotional time. It’s almost like we are doing God a favor. But God isn’t the one who gets built up in the faith or protected from the enemy by our devotional time. Reading the words of life from the Scripture is for our benefit.
Do we crave God’s love letter to bring us satisfaction and joy? Jeremiah 15:16 goes on to say, “Thy Word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart.” Life is more than filling our bellies with the delicacies of food. It is filling our hearts with the truth from Scripture. Following God’s way is the path to true freedom and happiness.
Most of us have no excuse for not feasting on God’s Word
It is available to us in abundance. We have paper copies, audio copies, and electronic copies.
Likewise, taking time to experience the truths of Scripture can open up a whole new world of spiritual understanding and a new level of spiritual rejoicing. Are we eating of the bounty in God’s Word for satisfaction and enjoyment?
“Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and Thy Word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by Thy name, O LORD God of hosts.” Jeremiah 15:16
Share with us how you intentionally dig deep in the Word?
We love truth, don’t we? We yearn for it! We need it. We want to know what the Bible says about truth. We long for the truth of God’s Word to permeate our everyday lives so that we never question, even on the bad days.
I know no other book of the Bible that says more about truth than Proverbs. The book of Proverbs is full of truth. In Proverbs 14:1-12, Solomon tells us the best place to seek truth is in God’s Word. So let’s do that!
