Have you ever filled a spoon with honey and let it dance upon your taste buds? I love honey—in tea, on bread, mixed with peanut butter for lunch—however it might come, I take great delight in it.
Isn’t it interesting that several times throughout Scripture, the Word is compared to honey?
Job 23.12: “I have not departed from the commandment of His lips; I have treasured the words of His mouth more than my necessary food.”
Psalm 119.103: “How sweet are Your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!”
Ezekiel 3.3: “And He said to me, ‘Son of man, feed your belly, and fill your stomach with this scroll that I give you.’ So I ate, and it was in my mouth like honey in sweetness.”
When the Living Word (Jesus) begins to illuminate the Written Word (Scripture) you quickly find that the Word has a taste . . . it is sweet as honey and as filling as a loaf of the best bread hot out of the oven.
What would happen if we continually came to the Word with the desire for Jesus Himself to satisfy and fill us? What if we realized He was as sweet and delightful as honey? He not only satisfies one’s soul but is the answer to every problem and question in life. He is the nourishment and substance of one’s life. Would we ever want to stop from continually eating and partaking of Him?
He is as sweet as honey! Eat. Partake. Grab your own spiritual spoon and dive in the honey-rich Word for yourself!
