Buy Without Money

Isaiah 55

I read this and my thoughts went like this so I thought I would share them with you. We can buy with out money, we can make a purchase without money.

Isaiah 55:1 -Every one that thirsteth come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money come ye, buy, and eat, yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and with out price.

Pastor John Dash of New Beginning World Outreach gave out to over 500 families and that means over a thousand people were fed without money, without cost to them. This is something that is done all the time through the Ministry. God in turn blesses us with more food to give out. There are working people that need and we are there for them also. Of course someone paid for the food but it was given freely to those that needed and did not have money to buy. With the help of those that do have money and want to sow a seed into this Ministry is how we do what God has given us to do. Now just maybe the word is speaking of spiritual food also for in the next passage it says this.

Isaiah 55:2 Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread and your labor for that which satisfieth not? Hearken diligently unto me and eat ye that which is good and let your soul delight itself in fatness.

To me this would mean sometimes we sow our seeds on foolish ground where we will not reap a good harvest. When you sow seed into bad ground you will not reap a harvest in return. Bread is the word of God it is our source for life. Our bread is also that which we sow to others and benefit from a return.

Isaiah 55: 6  Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near.

In other words sometimes He is not near and cannot be found. I believe when we are not where we supposed to be in the spirit the Lord cannot be found. Have you ever felt like your words were cast into the wind and just floated away to no where? We just spoke what was in our minds and not what was coming from the heart. The Lord knows all this that is why He told the disciples at one time "this comes about by fasting and prayer", it was not a simple thing to just speak the words, it had to be thought about and prayed about.

Isaiah 55: 8  For my thoughts are not your thoughts neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.

Well now that is laying it right on the line, he is letting us know he is a much bigger thinker and has a much bigger way of doing things than we do. The next verse tells us just how high his thoughts are, yet he is there for us.

Isaiah 55: 9  For as the heavens are higher than the earth so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.

He sends forth his word from the heavens to be planted in our hearts , to bud forth. His word never returns back to him void, it always turns into something bigger and better than we can imagine. We must sow to others, be it food for the body or the word of God, either way it will prosper us in the end. He knows and sees all. Everything He does is an invitation to the world to come unto him and see and eat of the free, yet bought with a price food.

Isaiah 55:11- So shall my word be that goeth forth out of the mouth, it shall not return unto me void but it shall accomplish that which I please and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

You see God knows what is going on and He sees us all at all times but just does not answer unless we are where we supposed to be with him. Where ever he sends his word it will do what he wants it to, He is the boss He will do as he pleases and his word will prosper. Donít let your words float to the wind and donít let your seed rot and not bring forth more seed, sow on good ground and not only will you prosper but also those that receive will prosper.
