Isaiah 55:8-9 NIV 2011

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord.

“As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”

This chapter of Isaiah is titled “Invitation to the Thirsty.” It’s the midpoint of the second part of Isaiah, the Book of Comfort. He was showing Judah how God had blessed them as he revealed salvation was coming. Isaiah also reminded them what he’d said before. Isaiah 40:13, “Who can fathom the Spirit of the Lord, or instruct the Lord as his counselor?” Paul’s letter to the Philippians offered the same message. Philippians 2:5, “In your relationship with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus.” Isaiah wanted Judah to remember they belonged to the Lord by being like minded with Him. Satisfaction is found in God and God alone.

Pastor David said this morning, “You don’t have to have all the answers. ‘I was blind but now I see.’ Answer this way.” This fits perfectly with what both Isaiah and Paul stated. Before I would pride myself on having the answer for most questions. But the operative words I just typed are “before and pride.” A daily dive into God’s Word shows me I don’t need to have all the answer. I’m satisfied with the knowledge He’s given me. My satisfaction is found in God alone.

Where do you find your satisfaction?

Satisfied in God together,

S
