DAILY DEVOTIONAL: Consuming the Word

Day 2: Consuming the Word – Finally a Diet that Works

They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the honeycomb.
Psalm 19:10

Thank you for joining me on this journey. This hasn’t been the easiest year of my very many years! So it’s possible I need this as much as or more than you do. As we go through the next year together, day by day, know that dedicating yourself to praying, studying, and taking action will benefit your soul. I’m counting on that too.

In today’s culture where God’s Words – for example, His Ten Commandments – are literally pried off the wall to be warehoused in some dusty museum basement, it’s easy to forget that we should meditate on them (Ps. 119); use them as a life tool (Heb. 4:12); and mine them for deep truths (2 Tim. 3:16-17). Psalm 19 describes God’s Words as being precious, pure, sweet, valuable, and foundational for wisdom.

Sweet Freedom in Action
Today, invite someone to talk about how they’re doing spiritually. Encourage them to eat up God’s Word for the inspiration, answers, and healthy life that He intends.
