Psalm 119.103

Abide

“How sweet are Your words to my taste! Yes, sweeter than honey to my mouth!” [Psalm 119.103 NASB]

When I was a young boy, my Mum worked in a sweet shop called Churchill’s and she was allowed to eat, as often as she liked, any sweet she chose. I thought, at that time, what a lovely place to work.

Like the Lord and Jeremiah, David loved to meditate continually on God's word, look at it from different angles, apply it to various situations and savour the full meaning of it.

Terry Waite, who was taken captive, knew what it was like to be deprived of reading for years. One day, his guards gave him a secular book and he continually reread it and eventually counted every single letter. Such was his hunger for reading.

David had a similar desire for God's word. He had learned to meditate on God's words in hard, dangerous and life-threatening situations; His word was his refuge and shelter.

However, it was during these times of trouble, tragedy and triumph that he continually repeated to himself God's promises of provision, protection and kingship.

When we keep saying His word of promise to us, the power, beauty and certainty of it infiltrates and illuminates our understanding.

Has God given you a specific promise, which has not yet been fulfilled? Do you feel that your faith and patience are starting to wear thin and waver?

Try meditation. Feed yourself at least three times a day on His word to you and very soon you will find like David that the adaptability and the comfortableness of His word will transform your inner disposition into sweetness and light.

Then the peace, which exists and functions within the Trinity, will also find a resting place in your life as you abide in the word of Him who holds all things together. [David McArdle]
