Monday's Message of Hope

Treasuring God's Words!
Monday, November 8, 2021 by Penelope Kaye

Hello, dear friend

As I pondered this week’s message, I opened my Bible to the book of Job 23 and realized God has not yet finished with our bodies, the temples of Holy Spirit. Let’s look at verse 12:

I have not departed from the commandment of His lips;
I have treasured the words of His mouth more than my necessary food.
(NKJV)

This passage holds such powerful truths. None of us wants to depart from God’s commandments; we all desire a walk worthy of the Lord. And with the help of Holy Spirit, we can press on to the high prize that Paul writes about in his letter to the Philippians.

Yet how many of us actually treasure God’s words to us more than our food? Do we really put his word first in our lives? Do we take the time to savor his word as much as we enjoy our favorite dessert? I don’t know about you, but I don’t. Even though I want to, I plan to, I need to take more time in his Word, it doesn’t happen. But involve my taste buds, everything about me becomes laser-focused. And when that culinary delight lands in front of me, I thoroughly relish my experience.

What would happen, though, if we chose to think about God’s word and the messages he places on our hearts the same way we treat homemade chocolate chip cookies or grandma’s chicken noodle soup? How different might our lives look? If I’m honest, I would probably see some radical changes on the inside that would definitely impact my outward behavior. So this week, I’m going to challenge myself to take the time to savor and treasure God’s word each day. I hope you join me.

Below are some questions to reflect and/or journal. Feel free to share your thoughts—I would love to hear from you.

  • Do you find yourself savoring your favorite food more than the Word of God?
  • Do you struggle with treasuring your time reading/meditating on God’s word?
  • How will this message impact your walk with the Lord?

Have a blessed and hope-filled week!

Penelope Kaye

honestly, this message made me want to cry. Because I desperately want to savor His word. I don't. I don't do all the things people think I do when it comes to spending time in His Word. I am very weak when it comes to choosing Him over my desires. breaks my heart. yet He loves me.

Hi, Jodi. I truly think most of us are in the same boat. But He is so kind and gracious, and Holy Spirit is always with us. Blessings to you, dear friend. Penelope Kaye

Maybe in the past I did, but today I am soooo grateful for hours in the morning to share devotions with Him, thanksgivings and prayers. It give me so much hope for each new day and smiles to share with others. Thank you fo your meaningful, thoughtful devotions and questions and words back to me!

Thank you for sharing this valuable reminder! I am right there with you. Though I read some scripture daily (with an occasional exception), I too often don't take time to meditate, think on and contemplate those life giving Words I am reading. God bless you.

Good morning, Arnetta. I'm so glad this message ministered to you. It's all connected to that verse where we're exhorted to work out our salvation. Have a blessed day, Penelope Kaye
