Do we delight in the Word of God? Do we rejoice in God’s Word as one who finds great treasure? (See Psa. 119:162.) The key is to consume the Word of God, to meditate upon the Word, to digest it and let it become part of us. The Bible is a supernatural book, and can give us supernatural energy to do the will of God (see also Neh. 8:1–12). Too many fail to read the Bible every day. They find time to feed their stomach each day, but refuse to make time to read God’s Word. Don’t let your belly take precedence over reading the Bible. Forget your food rather than forget the Word of God. (See Exod. 34:28.)
Jeremiah 6:10 To whom shall I speak and give warning,
That they may hear?
Indeed their ear is uncircumcised,
And they cannot give heed.
Behold, the word of the Lord is a reproach to them;
They have no delight in it.
