Your words were found, and I ate them, and your words became to me a joy and the delight of my heart, for I am called by your name, O LORD, God of hosts. Jeremiah 15:16 (ESV)
Now that is I word that I want you to think deeply about. What’s that? I want you to think deeply about what it would mean for you to be devouring my word. What would it look like for you to be devouring my word? What do you think of when the word devour comes to your mind? I think of someone that is starving hungry. I think of someone that hasn’t had a decent meal for a very long time and suddenly a feast is placed before them. I like the sound of that. Have you been starving hungry for my word? In the past, have you gone like stretches without feeding on my word? Have you ever been famished for my word? Yes, I have been famished for your word. Yes, in the past, I have gone long stretches without feeding on your word. Do you believe that a feast has been placed before you? Do you know that you have an opportunity to meet with me in my word to hear what I want to say to you? Yes, I know that a feast has been placed before me. I know that you want me to meet with you in your word. I know that you want to speak into my life. I want to devour your word. I want to hear whatever you want to say to me. That’s good.
You have been devouring my word. You have hungered and thirsted for my word. You have been meeting with me in my word. You have taken my word into your heart and mind and life. You have allowed my word to guard and guide your life. You have allowed my word to feed and sustain you. You have allowed my word to establish and strengthen you against temptation and evil that is in the world. You have allowed my word to change your heart and transform your mind. You are thinking my thoughts, speaking my words and doing my deeds. Keep on meeting with me in my word. Keep on feasting on my word. Make it your daily pattern and practice to devour my word. Yes Lord, I will feast on your word. It has become my joy and delight to find and devour every one of your words. Keep on speaking to me. I will keep on listening to you. That will be very good.
Lord, it is the joy and delight of my heart to find and devour your word. Your word has changed my heart, transformed my mind and guided my life. Thank you for your word. You speak to me through your word. You provide me all I need through your word. Amen
