A Hunger for God's Word

When I discovered your words, I devoured them. They are my joy and my heart's delight, for I bear you name, O Lord God of Heaven's Armies. - Jeremiah 15:16

A hunger for God's Word is something we develop over time. This hunger begins with a little nibble here and there (most likely beginning with a verse or two while sitting in church) just enough for a taste of it. We tend to think a verse or two is plenty and should hold us over until next week.

Once the verses start to speaking to you and they will because the Word is the very breath of God. You start to develop a taste for the Word and have the desire to take a small bite of it. Go ahead! Later on you might even take a big bite, but don't bite off more than you can chew.

There is a difference between reading and discovering the Word. Discovering the word is when you read it and that is no longer enough for your soul. We learn to take the time to explore the Word by studying it. This is when we take the time to chew on the Word, eat it, savor it, and digest it. We want to make sure the Word is deep down inside inside us sinking into our heart.

(For a further study read Ezekiel Chapter 2-3:11)
