God Gives Food that Satisfies

Posted

As we have been discussing diets and eating, here is a powerful saying from Isiah as God extends an invitation to us to eat:

“All you people who are thirsty, come! Here is water for you to drink. Don’t worry if you have no money. Come, eat and drink until you are full! You don’t need money. The milk and wine are free. Why waste your money on something that is not real food? Why should you work for something that does not really satisfy you? Listen closely to me and you will eat what is good. You will enjoy the food that satisfies your soul. Listen closely to what I say. Listen to me so that you will live. I will make an agreement with you that will last forever. It will be an agreement you can trust, like the one I made with David— a promise to love him and be loyal to him forever. I made David a witness of my power for all nations. I promised him that he would become a ruler and commander of many nations.”

There are nations in places you don’t know, but you will call for them to come. They don’t know you, but they will run to you. This will happen because the Lord, your God, wants it. It will happen because the Holy One of Israel honors you. So, you should look for the Lord before it is too late. You should call to Him now, while He is near. Evil people should stop living evil lives. They should stop thinking bad thoughts. They should come to the Lord again, and He will comfort them. They should come to our God because He will freely forgive them. Isaiah 55:1-‬8 ERV
