“Why do you spend money for what is not bread, and your wages for what does not satisfy?” (Isaiah 55:2 NKJV).


The Lord questioned Israel as to why they labored so hard for things that did not “satisfy.” Why not come to the Lord and freely receive His bread “without money” and wine “without price?” But Israel had fallen into idolatry. They pursued the blessings of God, rather than God Himself. Yet, the more they labored and spent, the more empty they felt.
In the midst of their sin, God promised them a Savior, a Messiah who would come in the line of David to offer Himself as Bread and Wine that would fully satisfy their souls. The Lord still asks us today why we labor so hard for that which “does not satisfy.” Why not come to Jesus and “let your soul delight itself in abundance?” You have not, because you ask not. Ask. The currency of the kingdom is asking.
PRAYER: Dear Father, we ask You to satisfy us today. There is a hole in our soul that nothing or no one can fill, but You. Fill us, Lord. Thank You for Your daily bread and more, thank You for the Bread of Life, King Jesus. In His name we pray, amen.
