Scripture: Isaiah 55:1-3
Isaiah 55:1-3 is another encouraging passage concerning the Word. It 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.” God says, ‘I have a tremendous deal for you. I want to make an everlasting covenant with you. The same covenant I made with David.’ Now that is an amazing deal because God’s covenant with David produced some mighty men and women. God’s covenant with David brought the pinnacle of the Kingdom to Israel. Is it possible that if we sow the seed of God’s Davidic Covenant in our hearts that we can be like David in the last days. It is not only possible, it is God’s intention. It is biblically revealed that His intention is to make mighty men and women and sow them among the nations. Are we ready for that? Can we actually walk through such a transformation? Not only can we, but we should! The way to do that is to put the covenant of Sure Mercy in our spirit. That means memorizing it, sowing it, speaking it to ourselves and planting it in the soil of our hearts. It we do that, there are some mighty victories in our future. We have the path to make our way prosperous and to insure God success. That is our promise. Maybe we should redefine success. Success is advancing God’s Kingdom. Success is when we fulfill what we are called to do even if we die doing it. We may be martyred and yet be awesomely successful. Success is wholeheartedly finishing the race that is your God-given purpose. That is success. Not how many times we fail not how many times we rise up. The fact that we finished what God assigned, not bowing out nor quitting nor giving up is ultimate success.
