Let the heavens praise your wonders, O Lord, your faithfulness in the assembly of the holy ones! For who in the skies can be compared to the Lord? Who among the heavenly beings is like the Lord, a God greatly to be feared in the council of the holy ones, and awesome above all who are around him? -Psalm 89:5-7 (ESV)
"Lord, make me aware of my endand the number of my daysso that I will know how short-lived I am. In fact, you have made my days just inches long, and my life span is as nothing to you. Yes, every human being stands as only a vapor. Selah" -Psalm 39:4-5 (CSB) "When thou with rebukes dost correct man for iniquity, thou makest his beauty to consume away like a moth: surely every man is vanity." -Psalm 39:10 (KJV)
The world feeds us dirt, grass, rock, gravel. Mud. If you didn't know there was more to life than playing in a mud pit then you would probably never leave it. But once you realized there were wonderful delights in the world like cheeseburgers, French fries, ice cream, doughnuts and sweet tea- you should never want to go back to the mud pit. The Word of God is that delicious buffet of wonderful things to savor and enjoy that is much better for us than dirt. Who doesn't delight in eating a piece of cake or the lick of an ice cream cone on a hot day?
Not everything in the Word can be compared to desserts. No- we can't live off of sugary doughnuts for the rest of our lives (not for a lack of trying though).
Theres also a lot of veggies and protein that we need to be the bulk of our diet- the things we don't prefer to hear about like things we shouldn't do, things we should do but don't want to, and things we need to change about ourselves. These necessities cleanse us from the inside out making us whole and healthy to be able to carry out the design that God has for us. We also need a lot of protein- things we have to chew on, pray about, and work out in our lives. These aren't easy to swallow but they help our muscles the most to keep us from getting weak.
