Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost…. Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good, and you will delight in the richest of fare. Give ear and come to me; listen, that you may live. I will make an everlasting covenant with you, my faithful love promised to David.
- Isaiah 55:1-3
When you are a part of God’s family, you are always invited.
If you have ever experienced rejection from others you know it’s not a fun feeling. Rejection in this world hurts.
However, when we read this verse, we can be reminded that rejection and feeling unwanted is NOT our identity.
You are a child of God who is loved beyond your human comprehension, and you’ve been invited to the most extravagant gathering of all time.
The Lord has prepared a rich and bountiful feast before you, where free gifts are poured out and joy is never ending.
All you need to do is say “yes!” to this free invitation and come with a thirsty heart.
This is the place where no one is turned away!
Your Heavenly Father tells you, “Come! I await you with open arms. I delight in your presence as you delight in mine. You are wanted, chosen and cherished by me! Come to my table with me!”
Today, be encouraged knowing that you will always have your heavenly Father to run to even when people or the world rejects you. He has promised His covenant to you, one of steadfast love that will never push you away!
The world's rejection is triumphed over by the Father’s acceptance of you!
“Heavenly Father, thank you that I am always invited to your table even when the world rejects me. I say “yes” to your free invitation and the life-giving freedom you offer! I am thirsty for you, and so I come to meet with you at the table you’ve prepared. Amen.”
