Psalms 107:17-18(KJV); Fools because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities, are afflicted. Their soul abhorreth all manner of meat; and they draw near unto the gates of death.
In the realm of the spirit, it is foolishness to abhor (regard with disgust, hatred or to despise) meat.
Meat in the scriptures is used to refer to deeper truths in God. In 1 Corinthians 3:2, Paul refrains from feeding the Corinthian church on meat because they were still carnal and babes. In Hebrews 5:13-14, the Bible reveals that strong meat belongs to the mature.
To abhor meat is to abhor greater depths in God; it is to despise revelation and deeper knowledge in and of God.
The Bible says of such men that they draw near unto the gates of death. Every time you reject deeper truth, you expose yourself to the attacks of the enemy.
The more truth you yield your spirit to, the more fortified your walls and your gates will be.
There is so much in God and it is easily and freely available.
The Corinthian Church was not denied meat. They abhorred it because they were not ready to grow up.
In John 16:12-14, it was not the desire of Christ to deprive the disciples of meat but they abhorred it because their spirits were not ready to bear heavy insights.
The wisdom of God calls us to hunger and desire for greater depths in Him.
Wise men are seekers! They dig deep; they study hard and search relentlessly.
His name be praised!

PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank you for this Word. Thank you for the deep and unsearchable truths in you. I know that there is more in you and it is this more that I pant and hunger after. I have seen, touched and tasted you but I can never have enough because to know you is to want to know you more. My heart and my spirit are open for deeper insights in you.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
