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
Don’t you realize that you can speak My words to others? My words are not just symbolic. They are creative, powerful, penetrating, gentle, and full of hope. My Son showed you that mankind does not live on bread alone, but My words are life and light which sustain you. When I gave My scroll to Ezekiel, he ate and his stomach was full. It’s that feeling of being satisfied at the end of a meal…when you say “enough, I’m full”.
When was the last time when you read My word with anticipation? Did you realize I was placing My creative, life-giving, transforming word and not facts within you? It is an infinite treasure to be explored and you will never be 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. Listen to the way a baby naturally realizes their thirst and hunger when they cry. For your spirit, nothing in this world will satisfy that hunger and thirst, except My word. 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 before. Taste and see. There is power for hope and healing in My words.
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, which happen when you speak. Your voice is the path through which My word chooses to go out for its desired purpose and it does not return void. My word is active and sharp and searches for opportunities to go into the ears of those who would listen. Speak My words. Let the word I whisper to You flow forth from your life.
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 which flowed forth from Peter as he responded to My son, “where else could we go, you alone have the WORDS of life.” Spending time reading My word and listening to My Spirit will always have an immediate and long lasting impact upon your spirit.
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 that these words depart from your mouth, they will bring life to your whole body.
Whispers from your Father, God.
