Establishing A Vital Living[Lesson6 day6]

Lesson 6 Pray-reading the Lord's word

Day 6

Scripture Reading:

Psalms 119:103 How sweet are Your words to my taste! Sweeter than honey to my mouth!

Your Word Sweeter Than Honey to My Mouth

David said, "How sweet are Your words to my taste! Sweeter than honey to my mouth!" The Word is indeed an enjoyment; it is even sweeter and more pleasant than honey to our taste. From these verses we realize that the Word of God is not only for us to learn, but even more for us to taste, to eat, to enjoy, and to digest. The Lord Jesus even speaks of God's Word as spiritual food: "It is written, Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that proceeds out through the mouth of God." (Matt. 4:4). Every word which proceeds out of the mouth of God is spiritual food to nourish us. This is the food by which we must live.

The Best Way to Eat Christ Is to Pray-Read

The Lord has given us the Spirit and the Bible for our enjoyment. The Spirit within us and the Bible outside of us are indispensable. It is best to mingle reading with praying and praying with reading when we eat and drink the Lord.....Reading and praying are mingled to the extent that our reading is praying and our praying is reading. Within our reading is praying, and within our praying is reading. The two have become one, enabling us to touch, enjoy, and obtain God.
