Growing up, one of my least favorite foods to eat were green beans. I absolutely despised them. Anytime my mom would have them for dinner, I would do whatever I could to eat none or as very little of them as possible. However, as time went on and I was forced to eat them, I eventually grew to like them. On the other end of the spectrum are chocolate chip cookies. I can’t remember the first time I ate a chocolate chip cookie but I’m pretty sure I was in love from the first bite. To this day, I still love chocolate chip cookies but if I eat a plateful of them, I probably won’t feel the best afterwards. However, if I eat a plateful of green beans, I am going to feel good after doing so. I realize this is a bit of a silly story, but I feel that sometimes my devotional life can be the same way. There are times when I honestly don’t feel like spending time in God’s Word and instead, I would rather spend time on social media or watching videos on YouTube. However, I have found that when I spend long amounts of time engaging in entertainment on my phone, I am usually left feeling unfulfilled. The opposite is true of my time spent with God and in His word. It may be difficult to get things going at times with my devotions but when I do, I am always left feeling happy and satisfied. In Psalms 34:8 it says, “Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.” I want to encourage you all to taste God and His word on a daily basis. Maybe your taste buds for Him haven’t quite developed yet but I promise you that they will if you choose to dedicate that time to spend with Him every day.
