Eat the Word?

What do you mean, eat the word? Well, the name came from the title of a song by the World Wide Message Tribe, but the idea is well founded in scripture. 

Deu 8:3

"...man does not live by bread alone, but man lives by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of the Lord."

Ps 119:105

"Thy word is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my path."

One of the more radical and literal examples can be found in Ezekiel chapter 3

Ezek 3:1-3

"Then he said to me, 'Son of man, eat what you find; eat this scroll, and go, speak to the house of Israel.' So I opened my mouth, and He fed me this scroll. And He said to me, 'Son of man, feed your stomach, and fill your body with this scroll which I am giving you.' Then I ate it, and it was sweet as honey in my mouth."

In Jeremiah we read of Jeremiah's delight in eating God's word.

Jer 15:16

"Thy words were found and I ate them, and Thy words became for me a joy and the delight of my heart; For I have been called by Thy name, O Lord God of hosts."
