taste what is good

 

 

Jeremiah 15:16

16 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.

EXTRA READING: JEREMIAH 15

 

Consider  Think about the last time you immersed yourself in God’s word.  You may not have ever considered these words from the prophet Jeremiah until this day.  Jeremiah became one of the greatest prophets of OT times and his ministry was blessed because of his unrelenting desire to “eat up” God’s word.

Focus  Read all of chapter 15 of Jeremiah.  He is once again lamenting over his situation of the disobedience of God’s people.  He, however, is able to present his case to the Lord honestly because of his undying faithfulness and love of the Lord and HIS word. 

72 Instruction from Your lips is better for me than thousands of gold and silver pieces.  Psalm 119:72

Just as the Psalmist writes, Jeremiah took great delight in God’s word. He wrapped himself in it and completely devoured it and lived it. 

Where is your commitment to learning and living out God’s word? ____________________________________________________________________________________________

Ask  Ask God to give you a desire for HIS word.

Apply  Take a moment right now to write a prayer to the Lord admitting your weaknesses in studying HIS word and ask HIM to give you a hunger to literally “eat” it up!
