Passage: Isaiah 55:1-13
Verse: Isaiah 55:2 (NIV 2011)
Why spend money on what is not bread, and your labor on what does not satisfy? Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good, and you will delight in the richest of fare.
It seems like a simple concept; nobody wants to waste their money or their labor. However, it also seems like many are in an endless search for what will truly satisfy them. When “in Christ” we experience true fulfillment; we are satisfied. May we all discover this kind of satisfaction. May we each realize where our priorities should be placed. May we seek the Lord while he may be found; call on him while he is near [v. 6]. Look to the scriptures for guidance, encouragement, and support. His word that goes out from His mouth: “ will not return to [Him] empty, but will accomplish what [He] desire[s] and achieve the purpose for which [He] sent it” [vs. 11]. May He be near to you each and every day. (inspired by Reflecting God – Devotions for Holy Living, WordAction Publishing Company)
