Isaiah 55:11 ”So shall MY word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to ME void, But it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it!”
is found by reciting…
repeating the words of
our SAVIOUR: CHRIST
With Scriptures so sacred,
HIS message we transfer…
the peace which we lack,
back into our spirits. For!
No vessel yet void of
HIS water can give! And!
No shared good news comes from those still empty!
So fill yourselfs full
at GOD’s banqueting table;
HIS WORD wholly opened!
Yea, come…to The Feast!
As HIServant refueling every day to feed others,
Devotional: Hebrews 4:12 “For the word of GOD is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart!”
The old adage goes, “you can’t love others if you don’t love your self.”
Of course, that sounds so self-centered but it’s no different then wanting to cook a full course meal and going to empty cupboards and a bare refrigerator.
So the hunger pangs that many a Christian feels inside come from fast food faith which rejects the deep study and longer preparation required of digging into his word for nourishment.
My ongoing belief, often repeated, is that while worship music is fantastic…it is not the word of GOD. While it helps me and cannot sustain us for the long-haul.
2 Samuel 23:2 “The Spirit of the LORD spoke by me, and HIS WORD was on my tongue.”
We all have Bible and Bible assisting apps on our phones yet the written word in our hands is rarely seen.
There’s just something tangible and comforting about holding physically the very words of Jesus…written in red.
I’ve found no soul who studies the Bible daily and faithfully who at the end of every week or month or year still says… “Yeah I got nothing out of that.”
So take HIM at HIS WORD and words! Dig in; eat until filled! Ask questions; pray without ceasing!
Then find your Peace, Rest, Hope and Provision…at HIS banqueting table in hand!
Amen and amen!
