June 30, 2022

As June ends, let's change our focus from the worldly stresses for a moment and look to God and his promises to his children. 

"Come, everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, and your labor for that which does not satisfy? Listen diligently to me, and eat what is good, and delight yourselves in rich food. Isaiah 55:1-2

How can we eat and drink without paying? This invitation to eat is spiritual, though I do not doubt that when Jesus comes to rule and reign, we will eat, drink, and be merry for eternity. Until then, we must seek satisfaction by consuming the Word of God as our portion. Jesus paid the price; it is his money we are spending. He is our drink when we are thirsty and our food when we are hungry.

We waste a lot of time worrying ourselves over things that don't matter. We live in this world, so I don't think we can ignore what is happening, but we shouldn't become consumed and weighed down by it. We must strike a balance and not become overwhelmed with situations and circumstances. Open your hearts to hear what the Lord is saying; recline at the table with him, dip your bread in the wine, and consume the rich food and drink that only he can provide.

The Spirit and the Bride say, "Come." And let the one who hears say, "Come." And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who desires take the water of life without price. Revelation 22:17
