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 your soul will delight in the richest of fare.Isaiah 55:2
So often I am in *pursuit* of satisfaction…to find something that will ease and soothe the aching and longing of my heart. I spend boundless energy and time diligently seeking, yet what I use to attempt to fill the hole is that which doesn’t have the capacity to satisfy. “He has placed eternity in the hearts of men” and that “eternity-shaped void” can only be filled with HIM. As I turn to HIM, instead of the refrigerator, turn to His WORD, instead of into the drive-thru, as I sit at His feet instead of bow in homage to the almighty Oreo milkshake when I am not hungry, as I listen to Him and eat of what *He* offers, my soul *will* be nourished, satisfied…*delighted*. What a wonderful promise!
Lord, I seek to pursue *You* in this day. I will look to *You* to meet that ache in my soul. Whether it is sadness, loneliness, happiness, boredom, I will not spend myself in trying to satisfy that void. Instead, Lord, today I will turn to You, through prayer, to listening to You, through Your Word and the Holy Spirit. I will eat *what* *is* **good**…that which *You* provide. I look forward to your promise happening for me…that I will delight in what you bring my way, as You nourish my body *and* my soul. Thank you, Lord. Amen.
