BE SATISFIED! – Isaiah 55:2 Devotional

Hear Pastor Cecil read today's Evotional

BE SATISFIED​!

Isaiah 55:2 – Devotional

Isaiah 55:2

“Why spend money on what is not bread, and your labor on what does not satisfy? Listen, listen to Me, and eat what is good, and your soul will delight in the richest of fare.

A while back, someone sent me a picture of homeless people in Haiti. Not only had they lost their home and all of their possessions, but some of their loved ones had suffered injuries with no way to treat them. Think of how little it would take to give them satisfaction.

I can recall some of the small houses we lived in when I was a boy. We were very satisfied with a house with good utilities and a roof over our head. As people moved into better and better houses, our family also upgraded our home.

Across the years I have associated with people who possessed the things of this world that they had paid a dear price for in the attempt to find true satisfaction. Do you want to know something? The material things of this world never brought the satisfaction they were seeking ― it never will!

The Lord calls us to dine at His table and find what will satisfy completely. Jesus was born in Bethlehem, which in Hebrew means “House of Bread.” How appropriate that He is the One who satisfies the hungering soul completely.

Here is what Jesus says in Matthew 11:28-30: “Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Be satisfied today!

Blessings dear hearts. Draw near to God today, trust Him completely and be a blessing!

CONFIDENTLY FOLLOW GOD! – Isaiah 41:10 Devotional

Hear Pastor Cecil read today's Evotional

CONFIDENTLY FOLLOW GOD!

Isaiah 41:10 – Devotional

Isaiah 41:10

“Fear thou not, for I am with you: be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, help you, and uphold with My righteous right hand.

Isaiah 41:10 is a verse I memorized as a young boy. I cannot begin to tell you how many times across the years this verse has brought me through the tribulations and trials of this old sin-sick world.

In today’s world of GPS (Global Positioning System) technology, there is a voice that gives instructions of where to turn and how far to go, before giving us new directions of where to turn and how far to go. (I have known drivers that turn their GPS off just to silence that irritating voice). I come from a day and age where we learned to read maps.

When I worked as a milk man it was necessary to use a code to tell how many intersections to cross, when to turn left or right and which house was to receive the home delivery. I am a very old man and am not sure they still use that system, or for that matter if they still make home deliveries!

God gives us assurance that His voice will always strengthen, help, and uphold us as we obediently follow His word and His way. All we need to do is to … FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS! Do not silence His voice.

May God richly bless you as you bless others by your words and actions!

TO YOU BEFORE THE CLOSE OF DAY! – Isaiah 26:3 Devotional

Hear Pastor Cecil read today's Evotional

TO YOU BEFORE THE CLOSE OF DAY!

Isaiah 26:3 – Devotional

Isaiah 26:3

“You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.

Years ago I recall listening to a sermon tape by Donald Grey Barnhouse, a prominent pastor and teacher. He related that years earlier he was returning by train from an evangelistic meeting he had completed several hundred miles from his home in Philadelphia. He had received a telegram that informed him his son had been in a serious accident and was near death.

His only way back to Philadelphia was by rail and he knew that it would be hours before his train arrived back home. There was nothing he could do but leave his son in God’s hands. As Dr. Barnhouse entered his sleeper, his spirit was greatly disturbed.

As he prayed, he recalled a phrase from Isaiah 65:25, “- – – but dust will be the serpent’s food.” Using that passage he asked the Lord to feed the serpent dust, and to please grant him a good night’s rest. He fell fast asleep and the next thing he knew the porter was touching his shoulder to tell him that they were nearing Philadelphia. The Lord had answered his prayer.

By the way, his son lived and during his time of recuperation committed his life to full time Christian service. If you have been having trouble getting to sleep at night, ask the Lord to give you His blessed rest and to feed the serpent dust.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

TO YOU BEFORE THE CLOSE OF DAY

To You before the close of day,
Creator of the world we pray!
Your grace and peace to us allow,
And be our guard and keeper now.

From evil dreams defend our sight,
From all the terrors of the night.
From all deluding thoughts that creep,
On heedless minds disarmed by sleep.

O Father, this we ask be done,
Through Jesus Christ, Your only Son.
Who with the Holy Spirit and with You,
Shall live and reign all ages through.

“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.

One summer when I was a young boy, we were challenged to memorize key verses in Scripture. One of those verses was Isaiah 41:10. I cannot begin to tell you how many times across the years this verse has been with me.

In today’s world of GPS (Global Positioning System) technology, there is a voice that gives instructions of where to turn and how far to go before giving the next instruction of where to turn and how far to go. I have known drivers that turn their GPS off just to silence that voice.

I come from a day and age where we learned to read maps. When I worked as a milk man it was necessary to use a code to tell how many intersections to cross, when to turn left or right and which house was to receive the home delivery (I am a very old man!).
