I saw a woman making cupcakes. She poured just enough batter in each cup to fill it half full. She then took little strips of paper with a scripture printed on each and laid one on each cupcake. Then she put more batter on top of each and then popped them in the oven.
I asked what she was doing and she said, “Making scripture cakes.”
Then I woke up.
Now, I’m not sure that making scripture cakes is a feasible idea (Would the ink on the strip of paper melt off into the cake?), but I definitely felt impressed the idea of the whole dream was to ingest scripture.
It (the law) will be health to your flesh,
to your bones.Proverbs 3:8 NKJV
How sweet are Your words to my taste,
Sweeter than honey to my mouth!
Psalm 119:103 NKJV
I received confirmation when I looked at today’s First 5 devotional when I saw that Wendy Blight had also written about ingesting scripture! She was basing her devotional on Joshua 1:7-9 which talks about knowing, obeying and meditating scripture. We are to know it so well it seeps into the very marrow of our bones. (You can read her devotional here.)
God is so good! I’ve been seeking His direction in starting off this new year, and I feel He has given me a mandate to do something I know is readily do-able: feed on His word.
Won’t you join me?
And those are my thoughts this morning. What's on YOUR mind?
