Today is the third Sunday of Lent and we continue our journey to the cross. Our reading is taken from Isaiah 55.
God is speaking to a discouraged people in captivity whose future was uncertain and whose life was hard. These verses unfold His path for moving His people from their thirst and longings to fulfillment, peace, and joy.
God is saying, “Realize that your only solution is to return to Me. I have everything you need. I have already covenanted with you that I will restore everything through David (and for us, David’s heir, Jesus Christ). In fact, My plan is to not only restore you, but also use you to draw the nations to Me. Restoration and revitalization in your soul start with seeking Me as your solution and calling upon Me to help. I honor humility.”
Is “returning to the Lord” in Bible reading and prayer a part of your daily experience? How would you describe the activities of your daily quiet time with God? If this is not your practice, what changes do you need to make in your schedule and activities to seek the Lord? Who have you been listening to and following instead of listening to and following the Lord?

Today is the second Sunday of Lent and we continue our journey to the cross. Our reading is taken from Psalm 27.
The psalms were a rich part of Jesus’ life, in fact, it is the Old Testament book which Jesus quoted the most in his preaching and teaching. This particular Psalm addresses the issue of opposition. We explore the "One Thing" King David (and Jesus) turned to in times of opposition.
