Psalm 19:9-11: “The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.”
Psalm 119:103: “How sweet are thy words unto my taste! Yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!”
Proverbs 24:13-14: “My son, eat thou honey, because it is good; and the honeycomb, which is sweet to thy taste: So shall the knowledge of wisdom be unto thy soul: when thou hast found it, then there shall be a reward, and thy expectation shall not be cut off.”
I love sweets. Ice cream, chocolate, just about any form will do. Of course, it’s best to eat them in moderation. However, there is something sweet that I can safely consume, and the more the better! God’s Word is described as being sweeter and more satisfying than any dessert could be. And if I will believe this is true, and seek to know His Word and gain wisdom from it, then He promises that, not only will my soul be satisfied, but also I will be rewarded and blessed – with joy, fruitfulness and many good things. My hope is that I would always devour God’s Word and hunger for His presence so I can grow in godliness and, by His strength, live a life that demonstrates how wonderful He is and how good it is to trust Him!
