And he said to me, “Son of man, eat what is before you, eat this scroll; then go and speak to the people of Israel.” 2 So I opened my mouth, and he gave me the scroll to eat.3 Then he said to me, “Son of man, eat this scroll I am giving you and fill your stomach with it.” So I ate it, and it tasted as sweet as honey in my mouth. He then said to me: “Son of man, go now to the people of Israel and speak my words to them.  Ezekiel 3:1-4. NIV

Eat My Words – Another Whisper

Don’t you realize that you can speak My words to others?  My words are not just symbolic.  My Son showed you that mankind does not live on bread alone, but My words of life and light can sustain you.  When I gave My scroll to Ezekiel he ate and his stomach was full.  It’s that feeling of being satisfied at a meal…when you say “enough, I’m full”.

When was the last time that you read My word with the anticipation that I was placing My word in you?  It is an infinite treasure to be explored and never disappointed.  I reveal My son, My purpose, My love for mankind through the entire story.  Take time to read.  I have placed a spiritual hunger for My word that is like the longing a baby has for milk to survive.  Nothing in this world will satisfy that hunger and thirst like words from My heart to you.  Though there are many cisterns from which you try and drink to quench this longing inside, they will leave you empty and more thirsty than ever before.

Eating My word and filling your stomach is only half of My purpose.  My word is to flow forth for others to hear and digest, and you help make that happen.  You are the path through which My word chooses to go and not return void.  My word is active, sharp and searches for opportunities to go into the ears of those who would listen.  It is through you that I desire to speak to all those in your sphere of influence.  But you cannot share what I have not given you.  TAKE time to let me fill you spirit man with the words of life.  Look at the revelation that flowed forth from Peter as he responded to My son, “where else could would go, you alone have the WORDS of life.”  Spending time reading My word and listening to My Spirit will always have immediate and long lasting impact. 

I am waiting to fill your life with good things and it begins with what you eat.  Read, memorize and meditate on my words of life.  Don’t let a day go by in which you forget to let the words depart from your mouth, they will bring life to your whole body and keep your way pure.

Whispers from you Father, God.
