SUNDAY, MARCH 22
Scripture: Isaiah 55:1-9
Isaiah 55:1-9 says, “Ho! Everyone who thirsts, Come to the waters; And you who have no money, Come, buy and eat. Yes, come, buy wine and milk Without money and without price. Why do you spend money for what is not bread, And your wages for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, And let your soul delight itself in abundance. Incline your ear, and come to Me. Hear, and your soul shall live; And I will make an everlasting covenant with you— The sure mercies of David. Indeed I have given him as a witness to the people, A leader and commander for the people. Surely you shall call a nation you do not know, And nations who do not know you shall run to you, Because of the Lord your God, And the Holy One of Israel; For He has glorified you.” Seek the Lord while He may be found, Call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, And the unrighteous man his thoughts; Let him return to the Lord, And He will have mercy on him; And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon. ‘For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,’ says the Lord. ‘For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.’” David received a covenant of Sure Mercy that says, ‘David, if you have a problem, moral, sexual, or any other kind, I will not take My mercy from you as I took it from Saul.’ David had a major sexual sin and God redeemed that sin, delivered him from it and brought him out in freedom through the covenant of Sure Mercy. Every parent and every grandparent who has a child caught in sexual sin, whether it is adultery, pornography, lust or homosexuality, the covenant of Sure Mercy is our Blood-bought promise that God will deliver our children and grandchildren from that sin and set them free. Our job is to invoke the covenant of Sure Mercy judicially over family members! We will pray it as a deliverance. But will we pray it as a judgment? If we can pray it as a judgment, the Avenger will go to work to deliver our children and bring them into the Kingdom. This covenant that delivered David from sexual sin will deliver our family members! Pray it!
