"Ho! Everyone who thirsts,
Come to the waters,
And you who have no money,
Come, buy and eat.
Yes, come, buy wine and milk
Without money and without price.
Why do you spend money for what is not bread,
And your wages for what does not satisfy?
Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good,
And let your soul delight itself in abundance."
The Lord begins this passage with an exclamation to get our attention, "Listen up, dear one! This is gonna be good--life to your weary bones."
If we have soul-thirst, quenching waters exist. If we rumble with soul-hunger, delicacies line the table. We cannot spend physical money on ultimate satisfaction. But there is something in which our soul can freely delight unto abundance.
It is in Him.
His Word--His revelation of Himself--is our sustenance. As we marinate in His promises and believe Him faithful, our soul overflows in satisfaction.
The other day my son asked how God made the beach. I thought and then said, "Well, He just spoke it and the beach became." Then it hit me. If God speaks it, then it comes into being. Period. If He has spoken a promise over you, then count it done.
In Him alone is fullness of life. Drink. Eat. Be satisfied.
So what promises satisfy your soul these days?
