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, O LORD God of hosts. —Jeremiah 15:16
Prophet Jeremiah found the words of God, even the words of God’s judgment, and he ate them.
He ingested God’s Word eagerly, lovingly, and often.
Prophet Jeremiah read and savored the Word of God in his innermost being.
And that is exactly where God’s Word is intended to go.
The Word of God is heart food!
When we ingest it, the Holy Spirit provides the power to help us grow to be more like the Lord Jesus Christ.
God's Word transforms how we think about God, money, enemies, careers, and family.
It is really good for us.
Let us eat God’s Word to our heart’s content!
Like prophet Jeremiah, let us say: “Your word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart” (15:16).
The Bible is food for our soul.
Let us read it, savor it, ingest it, and know the strength that God's words can give to us often-failing heart.
The more we feast on God’s Word, the healthier we will become.
