“The time is surely coming,” says the Sovereign Lord, “when I will send a famine on the land—not a famine of bread or water but of hearing the words of the Lord.”
Amos 8:11, NLT
G. Campbell Morgan once preached a sermon titled “Famine for the Word of God.” He said: “It is possible there is someone in this congregation who is living in the midst of a famine for the Word of God. It may be even as I attempt to deliver the message there is nothing in it for you. Words, empty words, a meaningless occasion, an opportunity for curiosity. You are in the midst of a great famine, famine for the Word of God…. You have become hardened to the touch of God, unconscious of the fact of God; and though His Word is living and quick and powerful, and sharper than a two-edged sword, it fails to affect you.”
Nutritionists tell us that when we lose our appetite for food, it may be from anemia, cancer, diabetes, medication, depression, or a host of other causes. When we lose our appetite for Scripture, it’s because of spiritual sickness. Ask God to give you a renewed appetite for His Word, and learn to devour it daily.
When you open your Bible, God opens His mouth.
