Revelation 10:10 – And I took the little scroll from the hand of the angel and ate it. It was sweet as honey in my mouth, but when I had eaten it my stomach was made bitter.
This chapter is pretty confusing and odd. I also like to use the word mysterious as even in the chapter there is mystery within the voice of the angel. Job can’t even speak some of the things the angel is saying. But what he does do is eat the scroll that has the things he is supposed to say. What is even more interesting is they scroll or message he ate was sweet to him yet made bitter and not sweet once it passed through him. I think I know what the Lord is trying to teach me here.
The word of God should be sweet to his servants…..yet at times when proclaiming those words and truths it isn’t to the people whom receive them. The scroll turned bitter in his stomach which is a little interesting being that what was sweet to him is now bitter to him…if the words of God are not sweet as honey as even the psalms says I must come to a place of humility and ask why? If it is only just God words and just facts and historical truths rather than words of Life and hope, sweet as honey, I have a heart check due.
Father, check and search my heart. Do I see your word as sweet as honey and a joy to my heart? Do I have life because of your word? Search me Lord and change me and shape me to your image.
