Drops of Drool

 

Our King Charles Caviler is a funny animal. It is my job every afternoon to feed her. I honestly believe she can tell time. On a consistent basis, each afternoon around 4pm central time, she is in high alert anticipating my every move for her feeding bowl. She is watching my every move. And the moment I move towards the area of the kitchen where her food is kept, like a bullet she speeds to the spot waiting for her cup of food to be dropped in her bowl.

 

I have trained her that before she receives her portion of food for the afternoon she has to sit and wait until I have placed it in her bowl. So, sitting in her position often I can look her direction and she is drooling. She knows what is about to happen. Her palate can almost taste the wonderful morsels that are being dropped. And the moment I give her permission she darts to her bowl and like a vacuum cleaner does not eat, but sucks the cup of food down in less than 15 seconds.

 

This week as I was placing the food into her feeding bowl, I looked her way and drool was flowing out her mouth to the floor. The thought occurred to me that as our dog is so excited about her portion of food for the afternoon we give to her, I ought to be drooling over the word of God. I must confess that far more often I am not.

I honestly believe that David was a drooler(is there such a word?). If you and I had been able to observe the King of Israel on occasion as he was writing down his thoughts which would eventually make it into the Bible, out of the side of his mouth would drop drool because there was such eager anticipation for what the Holy Spirit was speaking to his heart. It is true that on one occasion her did act like a mad man to save his life, and slobbered, but that is not what I am referring to. When you read the Psalms and you hear his heart, watch for a moment and tell me you can’t see drops of drool fall from his tongue as he cries out of his soul for God’s word.  Your hands made me and formed me; give me understanding to learn your commands”. (Psalm 119:73 NIV)  “How can a young person live a clean life? By carefully reading the map of your Word.  I'm single-minded in pursuit of you; don't let me miss the road signs you've posted. I've banked your promises in the vault of my heart so I won't sin myself bankrupt. Be blessed, God; train me in your ways of wise living. I'll transfer to my lips all the counsel that comes from your mouth; I delight far more in what you tell me about living than in gathering a pile of riches. I ponder every morsel of wisdom from you, I attentively watch how you've done it. I relish everything you've told me of life, I won't forget a word of it”. (Psalm 119:9-16 The Message)

Now, honestly, can’t you see drops of drool fall from the lips of David as he writes under the Spirit of God’s leadership and direction? Hopefully, I have not destroyed your eating time as you have read over my blog for today, but I wanted you to catch a picture of how excited you and I ought to be as we take the word of God into our hands and begin to eat it for our spirit man’s survival. Our King Charles Caliver knows nothing about God’s word. All she knows is that at a certain time of the day her internal clock goes off, an alarm starts to ring and she knows a cup of food will be placed into her bowl for her to consume. She drools with excitement over a few morals of hard food. I honestly believe that as David began to pen these words, drops of drool flowed from his tongue because he knew of what he wrote, “More to be desired are they than gold, even than much fine gold; they are sweeter also than honey and drippings from the honeycomb”. (Psalm 19:10 Amplified Bible)  May the Holy Spirit birth that kind of excitement and anticipation within your and my heart as we open God’s word and feed on the morsels which the Holy Spirit is feeding us with!!!!!!
