Here is part of today’s Old Testament reading, from Isaiah: ‘Ho, everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without price’.

The prophecy continues: ‘For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and return not thither but water the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall my word be that goes forth from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and prosper in the thing for which I sent it’.

The Word of God is like rain upon the earth, giving refreshment and bringing forth life. May we come to Him, thirsty as our souls are, and drink the Living Water. He will not disappoint. May God bless you.
