“Come, everyone who is thirsty, come to the waters; and you without money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost! Why do you spend money on what is not food, and your wages on what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, and your soul will delight in the richest of fare.” Isaiah 55:1-2
Come. You have an invitation from the Lord to partake in what will finally nourish your soul and bring you delight! Have you ever had an intense hunger or thirst for something but unsure what would satisfy? Has your soul ever substituted a person in lieu of the Lord for nourishment? Come to the water, you without money. It will cost you nothing but a hunger and thirst for righteousness (Matthew 5:6). These things being offered to you have been paid in full by the blood of Christ Himself, there is no charge to you! (1 Peter 1:19). Why are we toiling over things that do not nourish or satisfy us?
Our desires are numerous and we have nothing to supply them that would render them full except the fullness of the agape love of Jesus. Do we imagine our desires could be fulfilled by another person when they too cannot fulfill their own desires? Shall we allow our disappointments to lead us to Christ, seeking satisfaction in Him alone? The Lord is the only One who has the capability to render our vessels full. God is so abundant in the filling that He not only satisfies us, He floods us (Romans 5:15, 15:13, 2 Corinthians 9:8, 1 Thessalonians 3:12). From this overflow we are divinely anointed to be our husband’s delight.
Lord, give us the grace to humbly come before You and accept your free offer. Let us know the freedom in finding satisfaction in You alone. May we feast on Your word and our soul find delight…in the bountiful name of Jesus.
