We are still praising God’s Word. Could there be anything better? Read Psalm 119:97-120 [Click the link to read online or open up your Bible.]

How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth.

Psalm 119:103

Does God’s Word taste good to you? Is it a sweet savor you long for more of?

I’m not sure everyone finds His Word palatable. These days, many seem to gag on His words when it comes to what He says about sexuality, creation, authority, marriage, pleasure, eternal life, heaven and hell.

The psalmist’s words describe how those who love God feel about His Word. It’s agreeable to them and useful. I see his words as a barometer of our love for Him. If we love Him, His Word will taste good to our spirits. We will use it to light our way so we don’t stumble. We will find hope and security in His precepts. It’s where we will run for refuge and strength.

How does your love for God measure up when you lay your feelings about Scripture next to our psalmist’s?

This may seem unfair to you. But it’s not really me who made the measure of the test. God did.

In fact, this is love for God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome…

1John 5:3 NIV

Father God, reveal stubborn strongholds in me, which keep me from finding delight in all Your Word.
