I've had this verse from Psalm 81 on my mind for a while now. The thought of getting honey from a rock fascinates me. After reading more about this I've learned that this a reference to honey hidden in the crevices of rocks by wild bees. And the only way to find it is by listening to the sound of the bees. That tidbit of info aids me in understanding the verse.
Let's put it in context:
"If My people would be listen to Me, if Israel would follow My ways, how quickly would I subdue their enemies and turn my hand against their foes! Those who hate the LORD would cringe before Him, and their punishment would last forever. But you would be fed with the finest of wheat; with honey from the rock I would satisfy you. Psalm 81:13-16
There is a reward for listening to God. Listening to God brings us in line with His plans. Being in line with His plans brings out the blessings He has to offer. I'm not suggesting that we obey only to get something from Him. I'm focused on the treasure of intimacy...the sweetness of relationship...that comes from time spent making Him a priority. Only He can satisfy the longings, the heart desires, the need for oneness and completion that I have. To me, He is the honey hidden in the rock. And I am determined to listen for His voice and fall in step with His plans and follow Hard after Him.
