Psalm 119:103 (NKJV) How sweet are thy words unto my taste! Yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
How do you understand the Word of God? Do you view it as being difficult, challenging, or maybe even not being interesting? The psalmist David speaks of loving the Word and finding it to be sweet to his spiritual taste. It’s time to spend some time with the Lord’s word people of God.
Hopefully we can say or will get to a place that we love the Word, even though portions of it are difficult to understand and its corrections are sometimes hard to take. Since it is food for our soul, and that which God uses to nourish us spiritually, if our attitude is what it should be we can say, “How sweet are thy words!”
But there are some hindrances to loving the Word. If you have been influenced by worldly philosophy or preconceived ideas about God, you will have to overcome this thinking to truly feed on God’s truth. False doctrine, worldly interests, or a rebellious spirit can all be hindering factors to loving the Word of God. In the times we are living if we ever needed a Word from the Lord we sure need it now!
Point to ponder- There are even more reasons for loving God’s Word, however, than there are hindrances to it. The fact that it is God’s book is reason number one. Should we not be vitally interested in the one book God has given us? It tells us about the Lord’s power, His purpose, His love. It is a book that traces the unfolding of the Lord’s good pleasure in for our lives here in the earth. Including the things we need to know about family, children, work, suffering, and even money. Yes the Lord and the Word; have a great Tuesday family!
