Today’s post picks up from the previous post entitled, Goodbye White Pages.
I love reading inspirational posts, books, and devotionals but I cannot allow that to be my main source of nourishment. God is baking a fresh supply of His Word for us daily but we have to decide to take a seat at the table and when seated, eat. Jeremiah states he ate God’s word and it was sweet like honey. By all means, I have had periods of eating His Word and finding it bland. I could not make any sense of it and was unable to see how it applied to my life. If you’re in one of those periods, it’s important to not get up from the table. Even in those moments you are receiving vital nutrients.
In order to know God for myself, I have to step away from the leftovers others are serving and get alone and read His Word myself. Allowing the Holy Spirit to season my spirit man so that the Word becomes palatable to my daily life. Nothing wrong with leftovers but when we are getting second hand inspiration or revelation from others you only get the portion they are willing to share. It’s impossible to get all they receive. I know that I have a hard time remembering exactly how the Spirit uncovered a thing to me. So when I’m absent from this place and hadn’t stop in at yours, it’s not because I didn’t like what you were serving but I needed extra time with the master chef Himself.
Have you been taking the time to receive nourishment from the Master Chef or have you been eating the crumbs from His servants?
