How sweet are thy words unto my taste yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth. —Psalm 119:103
One thing God has given to me from my youth up is a taste or relish for no other book except the Bible. I can say before God, I have never read a book but the Bible, so I know nothing about books.
As I have peeped into books, I have seen in some of them perhaps one reason for good people to say, “That is a good book.” Oh, but how much better to get the Book of books which contains nothing but God. If a book is commended because it has something about God in it, how much more shall the Word of God be food for the soul, the strengthening of the believer, and the building up of the human order of character with God, so that all the time he is being changed by the Spirit of the Lord from one state of glory into another.
We shall become flat, anemic, and helpless without the Word, dormant and so helpless to take hold of the things of God.
The Word is everything. The Word has to become everything. When the heavens and the earth are melted away, then we shall be as bright, brighter than the day, and going on to be consistent because of the Word of God.
I love Thy Word, Oh God. It is sweet to my taste
and life to my being. Thy Word I cherish
with my whole heart. Amen.
