KEY VERSEIsaiah 55:10-11 (God to Israel)
The rain and snow come down from the heavens and stay on the ground to water the earth. They cause the grain to grow, producing seed for the farmer and bread for the hungry. It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it.

I invite you to be in a relationship with me. I don’t just want you to say “yes” one time and then forget about me. Say “yes” again and again. Seek me day after day and all through the day. I have so much to offer, so turn to me and live. Turn to me and feed your soul and mind. Turn to me and watch me provide. Seek me, and you will find me—I am here. Those who reject me and disregard my instruction wonder why I never provide for them. Don’t be like them.

My thoughts are not your thoughts, and my ways are not your ways, but every word that comes from my mouth will fulfill its purpose. Lean into me and follow my instruction and live a faith-filled life of love and adventure. Come to me when you are thirsty. Come to me when you are lacking. Come to me in all seasons of life, and you will never thirst again.

Continue to make time with God a priority. Don’t merely read your Bible and forget about it. Instead, continue to think about God’s word throughout the day. Stay engaged with God and his word. Listen to God’s instruction today and obey.
