“And he said unto me, Son of man, cause thy belly to eat, and fill thy bowels with this scroll that I give thee. Then did I eat it; and it was in my mouth as honey for sweetness”. Ezekiel 3:3
The prophet Ezekiel had an encounter with God in which God told him to eat the scroll which is His word. Ezekiel did so and it was sweet like honey in his mouth. This is how the Word of God tastes for those who care to eat it. Some don’t have the time for the word of God not knowing that it is the key to any forward movement they desire in their lives. It was when Ezekiel ate the word that he was qualified to get thee unto the house of Israel, and speak with my words unto them. (vs 4). You can’t command attention if you have not eaten the word of God.
Don’t get confused when I say, “eat the word”. You eat the Word when you study your bible, devotional, Christian materials together and also when you listen to messages. As you do that steadily, you are feeding your spirit and it will make your life sweet and joyful. The same way you use your mouth to eat food, use your eyes and ears to eat the word of God. Whatever you need in life is wrapped in the Word. When you get the word and digest it, you will see the manifestation of those qualities you saw in our previous study. Beloved, make it a point of duty to eat the Word more times than you eat physical food daily and the changes in your life will marvel you. If the earth that was without form and void became good by the instrumentality of the Word, so will your life be.
