DIG for Wednesday the 13th of September…..eat it, digest it, love it…..Jeremiah 15 v 16

One of the great things about being a pastor and teacher is when a person “gets” what you are teaching.

And one of the greatest joys is to see a fellow believer fall in love with the Word of God.

I had a sister in the Lord come up to me in church recently to tell me about a verse “I had to see”.

It was Jeremiah 15 v 16, and her excitement was that it was about God’s Word.

The Word is like food for us, it is there to be eaten and digested; it is there to provide us with life.

And more than that, the Word is there for us to rejoice over.

Reading this section of the Word we see what the experience of Jeremiah was; he loved God’s Word and he treated it like food, he was filled with joy

And this could and should be our experience.

The Word is wonderful, the Word is like food (or bread according to Jesus), and the Word if understood can change our lives for the better.

The Word is a wonderful gift from God, there to be eaten and digested.

The Word is there for you to use, like a seed (as we have seen recently) and like food.

We eat every day, so we should feast upon the Word of God every day.

Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord for your Word, and thank you for the life that it generates within me”.

Jeremiah 15 v 16…..Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O Lord God of hosts
