“How sweet are your words to my taste,
sweeter than honey to my mouth!
I gain understanding from your precepts;
therefore I hate every wrong path.”
His word never changes and continually fills us up with such sweetness despite the bitterness that surrounds us. When we face trials and have to make hard decisions, sometimes we are inclined to cling to any bitterness in the situation and fail to seek God’s will.
In seeking His will, we are required to do more than just sit around and wait for some big epiphany from God. While He is fully capable in communicating this way with us, He desires our an earnest devotion to speak with Him day-to-day all throughout the day! If we are to understand His precepts, we need to have a constant awareness of His presence. At times, He speaks to us so softly, and we must tune our ears to hear and focus our eyes to see what he wants to say to us.
May you be daily be filled with the sweetness of His words and presence of the Holy Spirit!
