Isaiah 55:2-3: “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. Give ear and come to me; hear me, that your soul may live.”
Can you believe there is something better than brownie a la mode?? Yup….it is God. He is more delicious, satisfying, soul quenching then anything else or so the Bible tells me. Folks, I’m not there yet. I’m really not. But it is an intriguing thought.
I mean I can clearly identify that I eat OFTEN because I’m bored, anxious, upset….not to meet my physical hunger but a deeper, soul/spirit hunger that just will not be filled no matter how much chocolate I throw in this gaping hole. Sometimes it literally feels like a big hole in my heart and even when my tummy is bursting and I feel uncomfortable, I continue eating. And eating. And nibbling….food doesn’t even taste good anymore…I just yearn for more.
God is asking me why I am trying to meet that soul hunger with stuff that will not quench it. Good question God. BEST of all…He is promising something that is the RICHEST fare. I have had delicious food before…I find almost nothing as satisfying…and then God says ‘feeding’ on Him is even better? Wow….I’m in.
