Soporific (Psalm 119:98-105)

Good morning all,

The word of the day is “saporific.”  Although it is the longest psalm in the Bible, it is definitely one of my favorites.  And, I love today’s verse because it makes my mouth water every time.  I think that the writer of this Psalm really captures the essence of God’s word, and what it should be in each of our lives.

How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!” ~Ps. 119:103

My question is: do you allow God’s word to permeate your soul, and drink it in as if it were the sweet nectar that the psalmist puts forth?  I think we each need to take a good amount of time to remember that without God’s word it is very difficult to navigate through life.  Many of the times that I talk to people about hardships, and I ask them if they have gone to prayer or looked at God’s word, I am astonished to find out that neither of those aspects have been a part of the process.  My prayer is that you respond favorably to the soporific goodness of God’s word, taking in as much as possible in hopes that it will change your life.

Praying for you,
