 Are you hungry? Look for Him- In His Word 1-30-2021

“Is anyone thirsty?  Come and drink— even if you have no money! Come, take your choice of wine or milk— it’s all free!  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. “Come to me with your ears wide open.  Listen, and you will find life. I will make an everlasting covenant with you.  I will give you all the unfailing love I promised to David. See how I used him to display my power among the peoples. I made him a leader among the nations. You also will command nations you do not know, and peoples unknown to you will come running to obey, because I, the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, have made you glorious.” Seek the Lord while you can find him.  Call on him now while he is near. 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. Isaiah 55:1-8

We think we know it all, but we do not know anything. Our Lord God, Adonai he knows the best thing and He knows that all things are temporary, not for ever except if He chooses to make them so.

This virus time we are living in, let us find the best in it. Let us draw nearer to those in our ‘bubble’ of friends and family. Let us work to keep things clean and not dirty around us, let us use good hygiene and wash our hands more, not go out when we are sick. These are good things we should have been doing. More important let us call upon the name of the Lord that He would establish a personal covenant with each of us that we would know Him more, that we would see the good things He has put before us to walk to and to keep our world in control. After all God gave man control of the earth in Genesis twice, once with Adam, who kind of messed things up fast, and then again with Noah. Noah began the good work in following and walking with God.

One thing I have learned more than anything else in the study of Genesis this year is that man is weak. We are fallible, and we give up way too fast! We think we cannot stand another day of staying home, then make foolish choices. We need to be cautious, remain separated from among them, so to speak and seek God daily. Do not give up on Him! For He is the Lord God almighty! HE is the God of Gods, the Lord of Lords and the King of Kings!  He has it in His control to stop the faucet of the virus, He has the controls, but we need to acknowledge Him! The He will make our path straight.

         “Acknowledge Defined: admit, accept, grant accept or admit the existence or truth of, allow, concede, confess, own, appreciate, recognize, realize, be aware of, be considerate of, be conscious of, agree to recognize the fact or importance or quality of.

Trust Him with all our hearts, do not try to figure it out but acknowledge Him…Proverbs 3:5-6 says this, that He will make our path straight. If you go back to the beginning and read the full chapter God speaks to us; He says…

 My child never forget the things I have taught you.


Store my commands in your heart. If you do this, you will live many years, and your life will be satisfying. Never let loyalty and kindness leave you! Tie them around your neck as a reminder. Write them deep within your heart. Then you will find favor with both God and people, and you will earn a good reputation. Proverbs 3:1-4

He goes on to tell us not to be too wise in our own hearts, but to seek Him and He will take care of us today. So do not worry about things that go on around you; see God and follow Him and you will find peace, joy and direction for your personal life. Then you will see the good in others and help to bring that out instead of evil, then you will know His love and share it with others without even trying!

Our God will supply all our needs according to His way when we put our trust in Him to do so. His way is not our way, His thoughts are not our thoughts they are so much more! We see things as doomed today but He sees the future things it will be instead of what we thought it should be. He gives us a cake instead of a cupcake! Our God works in big ways, so let’s make room for that! Let us make room for Him to move in big ways, not just the small ways. Watch for the water that does not shut off, because it does not run dry, our God, the Living Water that flows and keeps us strong. Seek Him while He may be found! Draw near to Him… and He will draw near to you my friend. Put space for God in your day, starting and ending with His presence being acknowledge in your life will make a world of difference!

As the Scriptures say, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble. We will find peace, joy, and love  and so much more, when we humble ourselves and put our trust in Him, In Jesus’ name.
