Job said, "I have esteemed the words of his mouth
more than my necessary food" (Job 23:12).
How much do you value God's words—the words of His mouth? Is your heart panting for the words of God's mouth?
We love to eat and we love to snack. Food is necessary. But can you say that daily nourishment for your soul is more important? Can you go for one whole day without listening to Him speaking? Or do your hunger pains compel you to go and sit at His feet, receiving manna for your soul?
Follow Job's example! Receive the law from His mouth, and lay up His words in your heart! His words satisfy the longing soul. Praise His name!
