Milk & Honey

"Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, 
so that by it you may grow up in your salvation." 
- 1 Peter 2:2

I am blessed to serve a personal God, a patient God. Blessed to serve a God who nourishes my spirit with His Word, and convicts my heart to make change, so that I can walk closer with Him. 

The more of His Word I receive, the more I crave it. The more I store it in my heart, the closer I walk with Him. The closer I walk with Him, the more familiar I become with His attributes. What a reunion; a communion; a relationship.

"How sweet are your words to my taste, 
sweeter than honey to my mouth!"
-Psalm 119:103

I don't know about you, but when I get a little taste of something sweet, I want more of it!

In Biblical times, Jewish children who were learning God's Word (the Hebrew Bible, or Torah, prior to the New Covenant) would be given stone tablets covered in honey to lick, along with honey cake inscribed with verses to eat. They would then recite these verses to their rabbi. This would encourage the children to want more!

May the Lord convict our hearts today and equip us with only the nourishment He can provide for our role in motherhood, as wives, and daughters of The King!
