Honey from the Rock

1 Peter 2:9
But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people (a people belonging to God), that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; 

Jeremiah 15:16 NET
As your words came to me I drank them in, and they filled my heart with joy and happiness because I belong to you.

From the NetBible Jere 15:16

*The prophet accepted them {drank them in}, assimilated them, and made them such a part of himself that he spoke with complete assurance what he knew were God’s words.

This is what we as the Lord’s chosen people —
must continue to do!

As His words come, drink them in
He sends forth His word …
He causes His wind to blow –Ps 147:18

He breathes out His breath
The breath of life — the living waters flow!

Breathe in His life, drink in His word
Come into His marvelous light

How sweet are Your words to my taste! Yes, sweeter than honey to my mouth! –Ps 119:103

Pure, rich, fresh, the perfect food, the living word
Sweet golden oil flowing from the flinty crag
Rock Eternal standing firm enduring the winds of time –1 Pe 1:22-25
Honey from the Rock –Deut 32:10-13
Taste and SEE –1 Sam 14:29
Taste and believe, it is done –Jn 4:50,53
Taste and boldly speak proclaiming His praise
For I AM watching over My word to perform it –Jere 1:12
The living, unfailing word of the LORD forever stands! 

1 Samuel 14:27-29
But Jonathan had not heard when his father put the people under oath; therefore, he put out the end of the staff that was in his hand and dipped it in the honeycomb, and put his hand to his mouth, and his eyes brightened. Then one of the people said, “Your father strictly put the people under oath, saying, ‘Cursed be the man who eats food today.'” And the people were weary. Then Jonathan said, “My father has troubled the land. See now, how my eyes have brightened because I tasted a little of this honey”.

Deuteronomy 32:10-13
In a desert land he found him, in a barren and howling waste.
He shielded him and cared for him; he guarded him as the apple of his eye,
Like an eagle that stirs up its nest and hovers over its young,
that spreads its wings to catch them and carries them on its pinions.
The LORD alone led him; no foreign god was with him.
He made him ride on the heights of the land and fed him with the fruit of the fields.
He nourished him with honey from the rock, and with oil from the flinty crag …

Ezekiel 3:10-11
And he said to me, “Son of man, listen carefully and take to heart all the words I speak to you. Go now to your countrymen in exile and speak to them. Say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says,’ whether they listen or fail to listen.”

1 Peter 1:22-25
Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for your brothers, love one another deeply, from the heart. For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God. For,
“All men are like grass,
and all their glory is like the flowers of the field;
the grass withers and the flowers fall,
but the word of the Lord stands forever.
