Chew It Up

Psalm 1:2, NIV: But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his
law he meditates day and night.
It seems there are a great many questions in our hearts. We come to God’s Word
and seek, and hope to find good Biblical principal by which to live our lives.
If we don’t, we should. But when we do, what are we looking for? Perhaps we are
looking for the answers to particular questions. There is much that God has
prepared for those who will seek Him. But there are many simple truths within
God’s Word that often become the “don’t blink or you’ll miss it” passages. They
are often the treasures overlooked as we hurry to something more tailored to our
wants. Moms are famed for instructing children to “chew” their food. God’s Word
is something to be savored—something for us to consider—to reflect on. As we
meditate on His Word, His answers are revealed. Sometimes we are looking for
wisdom, but He is leading us to worship. Sometimes we seek purpose, while He is
leading us to simply praise Him. The question we must ask when we come to His
Word is foremost, “What does God want to say.” And with that, it would be wise
for us to take the advice of moms to heart—and simply chew our food.
