'Your words were found and I ate them,
and Your words became for me a joy
and the delight of my heart;
for I have been called by Your name,
O Lord God of hosts.'
The greatest need you have is to possess a true knowledge of God.
Knowing Him may not seem all that essential,
until something drastic happens.
Then your mind is flooded with questions about God,
is it not?
God may bring you to His Word through painful circumstances orchestrated
for your good and His glory.
It may be nothing more than
having to live in a place you
have never lived before,
among people you don't like,
or experiencing things
that cause you fear and unrest.
Perhaps the death of someone dear to you,
loss of your job,
severe loneliness, a traffic accident,
or any number of things may draw you to
consider your relationship with God.
The Bible is the ONLY true and lasting revelation.
Its pages contain beautiful treasures.
It is the most fundamental of all books
and the knowledge contained in it
is sweet to the soul of the one
who delights to study it.
To open its pages is to be surounded by truth.
If you do not love God and are not called of Him
for His purpose,
you will have no delight in reading it.
Consider your greatest need today.
Seek the Lord while He may be found;
call upon Him while He is near"
