Our Daily Bread 14 September 2018 Devotional

Topic: The Ultimate Satisfaction

Scripture: Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Isaiah 55:1

Message: As we distributed snacks for children at a Bible School program, we noticed a little boy who devoured his snack. Then he also ate the leftovers of the children at his table. Even after I gave him a bag of popcorn, he still wasn’t satisfied. As leaders, we were concerned as to why this little boy was so hungry.Our Daily Bread 14 September 2018 Devotional - The Ultimate Satisfaction

Our Daily Bread 14 September 2018 Devotional – The Ultimate Satisfaction

It occurred to me that we can be like that boy when it comes to our emotions. We look for ways to satisfy our deepest longings, but we never find what fully satisfies us.

The prophet Isaiah invites those who are hungry and thirsty to “come, buy and eat” (Isaiah 55:1). But then he asks, “Why spend money on what is not bread, and your labor on what does not satisfy?” (v. 2). Isaiah is talking about more than just physical hunger here. God can satisfy our spiritual and emotional hunger through the promise of His presence. The “everlasting covenant” in verse 3 is a reminder of a promise God made to David in 2 Samuel 7:8–16. Through David’s family line, a Savior would come to reconnect people to God. Later, in John 6:35 and 7:37, Jesus extended the same invitation Isaiah gave, thus identifying Himself as the Savior foretold by Isaiah and other prophets.

Hungry? God invites you to come and be filled in His presence.

Prayer: Father, I long to know You more. Only You can satisfy my deepest desires.

Thought for the Day: Only God will satisfy our spiritual hunger.
