Commentary from Pastor Michael White:  

I have not departed from the commandment of His lips; I have treasured the words of His mouth more than my necessary food. – Job 23:12

No matter how bad things got, Job refused to defy God. He did not depart from God’s commandments. Job did not despise God’s word! In fact, he treasured the word of God more than the food he needed to survive. And in the end, God would reward him for it:

Now the Lord blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning… – Job 42:12

Will you commit to craving the word of God more than food? To thirst for God’s voice more than water? Will you invite God to rearrange your priorities, so that He is everything to you?

Prayer:

God, rearrange my priorities, in Jesus’ name! I want to treasure Your word more than food. I want to thirst for Your voice more than water. I want to delight in You  more than anything else in this world!
