STOP STARVING! Today’s reading are Amos 7 – 9, Psalm 104 and Titus 2.
Today’s reading are Amos 7 – 9, Psalm 104 and Titus 2. We are reading from the New Living Translation.
There’s a famine in the land, but it’s not for food. They have all the food that they need. No, this famine is for something far more essential to life. There is a famine for the word of God. People are filling themselves, and their lives, with every imaginable thing. They are feasting on things that, in the end, leave them empty and starving.
If we make this life about satisfying our appetites, we end up famished and starving in the end. Jesus put it this way,
People do not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God. (Mt 4:4)
God’s Word is the bread that we truly need. Our souls will never truly be satisfied until they are satisfied in him. Jesus says,
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. (Mt 5:6 NIV) And in Isaiah we read:
Why spend your money on food that does not give you strength? Why pay for food that does you no good? Listen to me, and you will eat what is good. You will enjoy the finest food. (Isa 55:2)
God is urging us: Listen to me, and eat what is good. Enjoy the finest of food. Stop starving!
He has graciously placed a feast, before us, that we have paid nothing for. He simply asks that we come and eat.
Are you restless, tired, and hungry today? There’s no need to go hungry. His Word is here for you and it’s a good gracious word. It’s the Bread of Life. And it’s free of charge. Come daily to his table and feast on His goodness, his peace, his grace and forgiveness, his mercy and his love. From his Word; draw the strength and joy that you need today, in Him.
