COME TO THE WATERS
by Thomas E. Durst

Isaiah 55:1-3 (Amplified Bible)
1 WAIT and listen, everyone who is thirsty! Come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat! Yes, come, buy [priceless, spiritual] wine and milk without money and without price [simply for the self-surrender that accepts the blessing].
2 Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, and your earnings for what does not satisfy? Hearken diligently to Me, and eat what is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness [the profuseness of spiritual joy].
3 Incline your ear [submit and consent to the divine will] and come to Me; hear, and your soul will revive; and I will make an everlasting covenant or league with you, even the sure mercy (kindness, goodwill, and compassion) promised to David.
Multitudes spend large amounts of time and money on nothingness, seeking to fill that inner void that only knowing God can fill. Fixating on the pleasures and pains of the body, endless seeking of entertainment, continual busyness, addictions of all kinds, making more money, accumulating more things, and even religious information and/or observances are a few of the ways that people are seeking inner fulfilment--ever seeking but not finding.
Our wonderful God gives SPIRITUAL FATNESS and joy that never runs out which totally satisfies every longing of the human heart both now and for eternity. Nothing else can substitute for this experience.
Everyday we can feast on the Word of God and truly COME TO THE WATERS and thus fill that deep hunger which is intrinsic to our human existence as spiritual beings in God's image and likeness. My prayer is that this will indeed be the experience of every spiritual seeker.
