Your Words Were Found

April 21, 2008

“Your words were found, and I ate them, and they became to me a joy and the delight of my heart, for I am called by your name, O Lord God of hosts.” Jeremiah 15:16

“Your words were found”.  These are God’s words.  God hasn’t given us merely good advice, or 7 rules of thumb that help us out from time to time.  No, he gave us his very words in the Scriptures.  Words that give us spiritual life!  Words that show us his character, his love and grace towards us.  

His words were found.  The passage almost gives the impression of stumbling across his words.  It doesn’t say “I was out looking for his words, and after a while, came across them”, but that the writer was walking along one day, and caught something out of the corner of his eye – the very words of God.  I think that we weren’t out searching for God’s words, but that we stumbled across them one day – that God put them in our path so that we could see them, be affected by them, and have life.  Praise God for his words and their life giving power!
