What are you waiting for?: Satisfaction

Speaker: Dr Jon Lovelady | Series: What are you waiting for? | One can only speculate what future historians will write about American society of 2019, but certainly they will note our overall dissatisfaction with our lives! Despite material wealth, depression is at an all-time high. Our suicide rate has been increasing over the last ten years. In our series, What are you waiting for? the sermon is Satisfaction. It seems we all are waiting to be satisfied! Humanity has not changed much in the last 3,000 years! The prophet Isaiah speaks the Word of the Lord to offer God’s people something that would satisfy their hearts and lives! Isaiah 55:1-9, not only gives us a powerful invitation, but it also shares with us a path to deeper satisfaction and contentment in our lives. The people of Israel were in desperate need of this message but so are we! As you read Isaiah 55, let it connect you with an eternal, enduring Word which can fill your soul! Isaiah 55:1-9: “Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost. 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 you will delight in the richest of fare. 3 Give ear and come to me; listen, that you may live. I will make an everlasting covenant with you, my faithful love promised to David. 4 See, I have made him a witness to the peoples, a ruler and commander of the peoples. 5 Surely you will summon nations you know not, and nations you do not know will come running to you, because of the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel, for he has endowed you with splendor.” 6 Seek the LORD while he may be found; call on him while he is near. 7 Let the wicked forsake their ways and the unrighteous their thoughts. Let them turn to the LORD, and he will have mercy on them, and to our God, for he will freely pardon. 8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD. 9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. (NIV)
