There’s nothing better on a Saturday morning than a warm Norwegian waffle. ❤️ My mouth waters at the thought of a creamy waffle topped with heavy cream and cardamom. I mean, with about half of my genes coming from proud Norwegian heritage, I think I have waffle batter running through my blood! Once when I was little- maybe 5 or 6 year old- my little Norwegian grandma made waffles for the family... and I kept asking for more! Apparently I ate 8 whole waffles! Needless to say, bread -sweet bread included- is definitely satisfying and delicious!
In Amos 8, God is still warning his people about the coming judgment, but this verse caught me by surprise. “I will send a famine on the land, not a famine of bread or a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord.” (V11)
Bread and water are basic human needs... but this verse says that so are the words of the Lord! I’ve never looked at it that way before. I mean I know that when I don’t spend time with God I’m His Word, My day never feels right or complete, but to put Gods word as important to human life as bread and water is a dynamic statement about the power of Truth to the human soul.
Jesus said, “man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.” (Matt. 4:4)
We cannot live spiritually without a hunger for the Word of God. It’s more than just a quick glance at the verse of the day... it’s about spending time with God in His word. The commentary I read quoted Myers, who summed it up beautifully!! Swipe to see his quote➡️➡️➡️
