God's Word is like Honey

Honey...it is thick, rich and delicious. But did you know that the honey that honeybees work so hard to create has nutritional benefits? Yep. High quality honey contains antioxidants.

According to the website medicalnewstoday.com, antioxidants are substances that can keep cells in the body from being damaged or slow the process of cells that are being damaged by free radicals. Free radicals are waste substances produced by cells as the body processes food and reacts to the environment. These free radicals can damage cells causing illness and aging. When the body does not efficiently remove free radicals the result can lead to heart disease, cancer, stroke, respiratory disease, etc. the antioxidant properties that are found in honey are said to help neutralize free radicals in our bodies, and this is thought to boost overall health.

Here is something else that is interesting about honey, it is mentioned 57 times in the Bible. In Genesis it is described as valuable as Israel told his sons to take it with them as a blessing to Joseph during the time of famine. It is used in Exodus, Deuteronomy, Joshua and throughout the Old Testament to describe the promised land that is “flowing with milk and honey”. It is mentioned throughout Psalms as a metaphor to describe the judgments of the Lord (Psalm 19) and God’s Word (Psalm 119). In Ezekiel 3, the prophet describes the taste of the scroll in his vision from God as honey. In the New Testament, we find that John the Baptist ate honey during his time preaching in the wilderness. Lastly, in Revelations, John the Apostle uses honey to describe the taste of the book that he was given by an angel to eat.

Consider this, just as honey and it’s properties help heal our bodies; heals us from damaged cells, helping to prevent diseases and fortifying our bodies from the harm of certain food and impurities, so does the Word of God help our spirits. Yes, just like honey God’s Word is sweet. It heals us from hurt, prevents us from the disease of sin (Psalm 119:11) and strengthens us as we stand firm against the enemy of the world (Romans 6).

Oh taste and see that the Lord is God (Psalm 34:8)

Feed your spirit, friends.
