INVITATION TO ABUNDANT LIFE

Isaiah 55:1-13 NKJV

 1 “Ho! Everyone who thirsts, Come to the waters; And you who have no money, Come, buy and eat. Yes, come, buy wine and milk Without money and without price.
 2 Why do you spend money for what  is not bread, And your wages for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what  is good, And let your soul delight itself in abundance.
 3 Incline your ear, and come to Me. Hear, and your soul shall live; And I will make an everlasting covenant with you— The sure mercies of David.
 4 Indeed I have given him as  a witness to the people, A leader and commander for the people.
 5 Surely you shall call a nation you do not know, And nations who do not know you shall run to you, Because of the Lord your God, And the Holy One of Israel; For He has glorified you.”
 6 Seek the Lord while He may be found, Call upon Him while He is near.
 7 Let the wicked forsake his way, And the unrighteous man his thoughts; Let him return to the Lord , And He will have mercy on him; And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon.
 8 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says 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.
 10 “For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, And do not return there, But water the earth, And make 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 goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in  the  thing for which I sent it.
 12 “For you shall go out with joy, And be led out with peace; The mountains and the hills Shall break forth into singing before you, And all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
 13 Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress 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.”


These are the words that comes out of the mouth of the Lord to you and I this day and they shall not return void, it shall accomplish it's mission and it shall prosper. These words has called us to abundant life and we shall have it in full.

All we have to do is to incline our ears to the call to abundant life. He said "come to me, hear and your soul shall live and I will make an everlasting covenant with you" (vs 3)

Therefore my brethren, Seek the Lord while He may be found, Call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, And the unrighteous man his thoughts; Let him return to the Lord , And He will have mercy on him; And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon.

The Lord has done His part, He has made us great promises to have abundant life, it is left for you and I to do our part (incline our ears to the Lord and to delegently seek His merciful face).

Have a wonderful day
