THY WORDS WERE FOUND AND I DID EAT THEM; AND THY WORD WAS UNTO ME THE JOY AND REJOICING OF MINE HEART; FOR I AM CALLED BY THY NAME, O LORD GOD OF HOSTS. – JEREMIAH 15:16
“Thy Words were found” – suggests that it was lost at some point. Sometimes we lose sight of God’s Word and what it means to us. A lot of times, we are just unable to picture ourselves in the Scriptures and so it seems irrelevant to us. Jeremiah was also reminding the Lord as He was telling him about the captivity that He was about to bring on Israel, that he had suffered rebuke for His sake. He entreated the Lord to remember Him and to visit him in his time of captivity.
The Lord did encourage Jeremiah previously that He would cause the enemy to “entreat thee well in the time of evil and of affliction” – referring to the remnant that would not be slain in the pouring out of His wrath. In these words Jeremiah finds hope and not only declares that he found the Word but that they were good enough to eat. How good and nourishing is the Word of God!
Eating good food, that is nutritious for us, gives us a sense of well being. It is common knowledge that eating ‘clean food’ triggers this sense of well being in our bodies and subsequently in our minds.
Jeremiah had found the purest of foods and did eat them. What’s in your diet?
