Isaiah Chapter 55

Eat This Book

Read Proverbs Chapter 23

Isaiah 55

1 Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.

Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.

Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.

Behold, I have given him for a witness to the people, a leader and commander to the people.

Behold, thou shalt call a nation that thou knowest not, and nations that knew not thee shall run unto thee because of the Lord thy God, and for the Holy One of Israel; for he hath glorified thee.

Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:

Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.

For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:

11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

12 For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.

13 Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the Lord for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.

  1. 9. for as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways , and my thoughts than your thoughts.

  2. 7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

    8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.

    9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

    How much higher are His ways than ours? As far as the heavens are higher than the earth – which means ‘we are not even close’ is an understatement. So why do we think we know what He is going to do, or who He is going to draw unto Him? It says He will abundantly pardon; if we were in charge, would we be as forgiving? Lord, I want to be more like you, help me make my ways more like yours.

  3. 1 Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.
    2 Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.
    3 Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.

    OBEDIENCE

    So many promises and blessings throught the word revolve around obedience. When we obey, He moves. The word tells us that obedience is better than sacrifice, so why don’t we obey?

    Many times our flesh rises us, and our unrighteous thoughts tell our flesh that we must do something other than obey, rebel.Rebellion is a sin as unto witchcraft according to the word, and yet we still rebel, keeping the bounds of the flesh attached to us.

    Verse 3 tells us the trick here for our “fattness ” that will destroy the yoke, first we must LISTEN, second keep COMING. As we keep coming, His mercies kick in and He will help our spirit through the Holy Ghost, allowing our annointing to break the yoke that “has so easily beset us”, were we can have the strength to put off the old man, and walk in His ways.

    I AM ANNOINTED!

  4. 5 Behold, thou shalt call a nation that thou knowest not, and nations that knew not thee shall run unto thee because of the Lord thy God, and for the Holy One of Israel; for he hath glorified thee.

    6 Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:

    7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

    GOD HAS GLORIFIED THEE

    I don’t know of a greater statement than our God has glorified you! I am expecting a revival like this, we shall call a people that we do not know. These people shall run to the Lord not because of our past relationship but, that God has GLORIFIED us. I believe God’s people are a blessed people, we are set apartment, different from the rest of the world.

    I think we should let our light shine before men that the world might see Jesus in us. They could actually see the glory of God in us. How many of us are that close to God.

    I know that people can see the way we dress and act that they can tell we are church going people. This is alright but this is of different nature, almost like Moses was when he came down from the mountain after meeting with the presence of God. The word teaches us he had a glow about him that the children of Israeli could not look at him. I want a glow in my live that people can feel the presence of God when they are around
    us.

    We can have this according to these scriptures. People will seek the Lord while he may be found because he saw the glory of God in us. Can we influence someone to turn from their wicked ways!!!!

  5. Come and Dine

    1 Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.

    2 Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.

    3 Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.

    The one thing that came to mind as soon as I read this was the old hymn “Come and Dine”…

    Come and dine,” the Lord is calling,
    “Come and dine“—
    We can eat and drink of Jesus all the time!
    He’s our daily food supply,
    Only He can satisfy.
    “Come and dine,” the Lord is calling,
    “Come and dine.”
    “Come and dine,” the Lord is calling,
    “Come and dine.“
    When we eat and drink of Jesus all the time,
    He becomes our life within,
    And He fills us to the brim.
    “Come and dine,” the Lord is calling,
    “Come and dine.”

    Thankful that He feeds me until I am full of His Glory!!!!!!

  6. 8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.

    I want to be more like Jesus. I pray psalms 51:10 Create in me a clean heart o God and renew a right spirit within me.

  7. 6 Thus saith the Lord the King of Israel, and his redeemer the Lord of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.

    7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

    Thankful God has mercy on us when we repent of our wicked ways and forgives us .

  8. 55:11so shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth:it shall not return unto me void,but it shall accomplish that wich I please and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
    ——–
    This is “affirmation ” from The Lord
    The word of The Lord shall be accomplished so there is NO ” buts”
    —So I choose to believe it 100% what a good GOD. What a loving and determint God!The Lord can not lie,
    So by his mercies he has kept me going, I have got a hold of his word, it will come to pass, woohoo 😃!!!!!!!
    Like in the the past.
    Thank you ABba !!!!
    Thank you for mercy, for your word this morning,and YES! You alone are GOD, blessed be your name!!!!
    I trust you LORD, I do…..
    In JESUS name,AMEN!

    • We receive your word oh Lord! We receive it,as a church body and also personal, so whatever The Lord has said in the past to you, to me, to the congregation, It SHALL COME TO PASS, in JESUS name, AMEN!!!!!!

  9. iLove to eat the Word

    “Listen carefully”

    Hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.

    So many times in life as we hear the preached Word and go through the motions… Yeah, that was a great message, yeah that was for so and so…and we continue to do the exact things that was preached against. For example, we all know liers go to hell, but how many of Gods people will intentionally lie or mislead someone today?

    We have to listen and obey the preached Word of God in order to eat the goodness of The Lord.

  10. vs 6 We should call on the Lord while he is calling to us before it is too late. No one is guaranteed tomorrow. Today is the day of salvation.

  11. SPEAK LORD

    11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

    This chapter is FULL of prophetic utterances for and to The POFW. It is challenging for me to choose which one to expound on. I choose verse 11 because of the VICTORIOUS LIFE PRINCIPAL that it presents to the BELIEVER.

    Every WORD that my LORD JESUS speaks will accomplish its purpose, this is why I seek EVERY DAY for the LORD to speak to me or through me for the WORD that HE speaks cannot fail.

    For this promise I have determined to not allow a lifeless, temporal tree to offer more praise to our Heavenly Father than I will offer.

    WALK IN JOY AND PEACE THROUGH PRAISE

    12 For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.

    iListen
    iPraise
    iPray
    iWork
    iGive
    iReap

    NOW

  12. 8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.

    9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

    God will get things done his way, we need to let him. We as humans have this incredible ability to just mess everything up. Duo yeah he can have his way, no doubt his ways are better and more efficient. He is God and his will will be done. Thank you Jesus for being able to come down from you’re heavenly thrown to help me out Lord because without youI couldn’t do it. I trust that your ways are far better than mine and I surrender my will to yours. I love you Jesus

  13. The great invitation
    Isaiah 55:1-2 Ho every one that thirsteth come ye to the waters, And he that hath no money; Come ye, buy, and eat: Yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.
    2 Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? And your labor for that which satisfieth not? Hearken diligently unto me , and eat ye that which is good, And let your soul delight itself in fatness.

    The exiles are summoned to return and be restored. thirsteth. Spiritual thirst is primarily in view (see Psalm 42:1-2)……..
    As the hart panteth after the water brooks, So panteth my soul after thee, O God. My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: When shall I come and appear before God
    42:1-4 Longing to be with God at the temple.

  14. God wants to do things in our life. He will get His way and we can either do it the easy way or the hard way. I want to be like Jesus and for that to happen we’re gonna have to go on a journey but as long as I’m with God I am strong!

  15. 9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

    I’ll always be serving a God higher and mightier than me. I will never be worthy of his presence.
    His love and mercy is too vast and limitless for my mind to comprehend.

  16. HALELUJAH!!! HALELUJAH!!! HALELUJAH!!! YES LORD!!!
    11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

    Numbers 23:19 God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?
    1 Samuel 15:29 And also the Strength of Israel will not lie nor repent: for he is not a man, that he should repent.
    EVERY WORD THAT MY DADDY SAID, SAYS AND WILL CONTINUE TO SAY, WILL BE ACCOMPLISHED!!! JESUS SAID IT!!! IF JESUS SAID IT, THEN CONSIDER IT DONE!!! HALELUJAH!!! YOU ARE SO FAITHFUL DADDY!!! JESUS I LOVE YOU, I LOVE YOU!!! THANK YOU DADDY!!!

  17. Perspective

    10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: 11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. 12 For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.

    Why do we complain about the rain so much? Does it foil with our plans for that day, or is it you just don’t like it. With out rain there would be no grass, and no grass means to animals. No rain also means no fruits of the ground.

    Now in all that being said, do you not like the Word of God? That is the rain for our soul. Do you not like to read a simple blog? That is the daily watering of our soul?

    When we read it brings a measure of peace in our lives, therefore lets read Gods Word. When we have peace our perspective on life itself is altered. I like what it says in vs. 12 about the mountains and trees. It is very true too. It’s all in how you look at it.

    So look at life different today, and maybe life will be different.

  18. This chapter illustrates path. Direction is available. One can find the pathway to God (Jesus), if one hungers for it; “Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.” What a mighty God we serve! May the good Lord Bless you all in Jesus name, Amen

  19. Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live, and i will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of david.

  20. 8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.

    9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

    I want to be more like you Jesus!

  21. V8 he is higher than I.

    Everything about God is greater than me. Thank you Jesus n wrap me in your arms. Make me like you. Let the mind of Christ be in me. I want your thoughts and your ways. Consume me!!

    Consume me.

  22. 6 Seek ye the Lord while he may be found , Call ye upon him while he is near : 7 Let the wicked forsake his way , And the unrighteous man his thoughts : And let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; And to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

  23. So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my

    11

    mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
    Gods word is true…
    here God explains that his words are forever true. God cannot lie and will not be mocked, the promises that he gives us even if it takes years to fulfill will come to pass. I have seen it in my personal life and in the lives of others God’s Word will do exactly what he says in his time.

  24. 3 Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.
    6 Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:
    7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

    The sure mercies of David is an everlasting covenant. As we strive to draw nearer to him we must pray for those who have fallen away because they have a promise-he will abundantly pardon! I pray for the backsliders of this region as well as those in false doctrines with partial truths & those who believe vain philosophies. Bring these souls into the apostolic doctrine! In Jesus name.

  25. 1 Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.

    6 Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:

  26. 4 Behold, I have given him for a witness to the people, a leader and commander to the people.

    5 Behold, thou shalt call a nation that thou knowest not, and nations that knew not thee shall run unto thee because of the Lord thy God, and for the Holy One of Israel; for he hath glorified thee.

    God is calling POFW to be a witness to the people and a leader to the people, and to call a nation (Fort Worth and surrounding counties) that knowest not God, and fervently witness, intercede in prayer for and believe in faith for, that the heart of the people of that nation (Fort Worth and surrounding counties) would run to the Lord.

  27. Isaiah 55:10
    For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:

  28. 2 Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.

    Any pursuit outside of God’s will, and word is a risk. It may or may not happen. Yet getting behind his word, and doing our part to make it prosper will grant favor, blessing, and bring it to pass!

    The prophecies, words, and heralding of the future of this church, harvest, and revival are there waiting to be fulfilled.

    God will bless us as we continue to buy into the vision, buy the bread, and he will build this greater than we have ever imagined!

  29. Verse 6 MSG “Seek God while he’s here to be found, pray to him while he’s close at hand.” This verse reminds me of the song “We’ve come to praise Him”:

    You ought to praise the Lord
    While you have the chance
    You ought to praise Him
    And lift His holy Name
    Make a joyful noise
    Unto the Lord
    I’m gonna praise the Lord
    While I have the chance

    Verse 11 NLT “It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it.” God is sending out his word through POFW, whether he’s sending it out here, in Dallas or in Canada. IT has to be stretched out to all parts of this world.

  30. 10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:

    11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

    The word of God will accomplish the thing he has desired to take plac in our lives. Be confident and know that the The Lord has a plan for your life. If we have confidence in him we see it come to pass.

  31. money well spent

    2 Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.

    One of the greatest tricks of the devil is to get us distracted in our walk. The enemy doesn’t necessarily have to get you to sin, he just needs you to spend your time, talent and treasure anywhere else but on the things of God. The enemy knows that if he can get you to sow your seed where there is no hope for a return then he has got you out of the will of God. If we can sow our seed in the will of God then our money would be well spent and yield a great return.

  32. Thirst

    1 Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.

    2 Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.

    3 Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.

    In our human infirmary, we will thirst. Our souls are in desperate need of God, and we must avoid the temptation to try to fill that hunger with anything else. God is faithful and will supply all our need if we will trust and depend on Him.

    Philippians 4:19
    But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

  33. What kind of tree is that?

    13 Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the Lord for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.

    The bible is all about the law of sewing and reaping. It teaches that you can plant a single corn seed and in return you will haven harvest. The things that we plant are not alway what believe.

    Who do you judge a plant by its fruit.

  34. Let the wicked change their ways and banish the very thought of doing wrong. Let them turn to the Lord that he may have mercy on them. Yes, turn to our God, for he will forgive generously. “My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts. (Isaiah 55:7-9 NLT)

  35. Isa 55:1 Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.

    John 6:27 Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.

    Rev 22:17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

    Thank God for his gift of salvation to us. Thank him for his assurance of grace and mercy. He said if you thirst to come, well I’m here Lord, use me to be a better man. Use me to be an example to my family, friends and to the ones that don’t know you. Shape my mind, spirit, and heart that I may be who you need and want to be. Stretch my potential and I pray for wisdom.
    I sent out over 700 invitations to the services next week about building strong homes. First Lord I pray that you move through my home and enrich the atmosphere. I pray that you lead me as I lead my family. I pray that you touch each of the persons I invited and lead them to your house. I praise you in advance. Thank you. Amen

  36. 8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.

    9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

    I finally begin to understand. Oh taste and see that the Lord is good… Throughout my life I have experienced many ups and downs. A lot of the times doing things my way and in many of those the outcome was not so pretty. But how lovely is the Word and promises of God! They are filled with life and hope. Here recently meditating on my life and how the Lord has been faithful in His love for me that little by little I begin to understand how all things work together for the good to them that love God. He has a way of doing things that we don’t understand but in the end we know that He loves us and only wants to make us better even if through the process we must endure till we reach the well of blessings

  37. 6 Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:

    Alot of people want God to move on situations in their life, but they are not willing to seek him. If you want God, you must be willing to seek his face. You can’t be ashamed to seek the Lord. Call on his name and do what it takesto get his attention.

  38. Real Riches

    Somebody once asked a mult-millionare, “How much money is enough?” He replied, “Always a little more than what I have.” The writer of Ecclesiastes gained extraordinary wealth to accomplish great projects and claimed it was “meaningless, a chasing after the wind” (Ecc 2:11). If we scramble after riches, we can wind up feeling empty, especially if we’ve left our souls unfed. God says “the richest of fare” (Isa 55:2) can be found in him. Only in him will we find deep satisfaction for our souls. If we “delight” in his Word (Ps 119:16), remain in him (Jn 15:4), “seek first the kingdom and his righteousness,” then “all these things” will be ours as well (Mt 6:33). When we seek God first, provision, and even prosperity, can follow in a way that satisfies, rather than saps, us.
