When your words came, I ate them; they were my joy and my heart's delight, for I bear your name, Lord God Almighty. (NIV)
Thoughts One day, one of my mentors asked me about my favorite meal. I began to share with him how much I enjoy a juicy steak at camp, hot wings and cheese enchiladas. He could see how excited I was getting just thinking about these meals and how I was going to have one of them for lunch that day. I even told him how far out of the way I will drive for that perfect steak and my favorite wings joint.
He then proceeded to ask how far out of the way I go to eat up God's Word; how excited do I get to spend time with the Creator? Ouch!!!!
He threw me a curve ball. I have never forgotten that moment in my life and wanted to pass it along to you today.
Action Point Is God and His Word my joy and heart's delight? I am reminded that I bear the name of the Lord. How much more important is this than some meal that will only satisfy for a short period of time and then the urge to eat comes right back in a few hours.
Rest today in Him and His Word; and find joy and delight in bearing the name of the Lord God Almighty!
