Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

August 3 - Morning

"For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways,”

declares the Lord.
“As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.
As the rain and the snow
come down from heaven,
and do not return to it
without watering the earth
and making it bud and flourish,
so that it yields seed for the sower and
bread for the eater,
so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
and achieve the purpose for which I sent it."

- Isaiah 55:8-11

Accept the Free Gift of the Lord's Greater Ways, Thoughts and Purpose    

Chapter 55 is the victorious invitation to salvation that naturally follows a progression that began in Isaiah chapter 40. Isaiah chapter 53 was the Servant who fulfills the work of the Lord based on Isaiah 40-52. In Isaiah chapter 54 a family and dwelling that has grown so large that it is bursting the seams (Isaiah 54:3) is described. Now, in Isaiah 55 the table has been set and the people are invited. It is a glorious victory celebration. This chapter is the basis for Jesus’ teaching in Matthew 11:28-29 and John’s vision in Revelation 22:17.

In a world of competing philosophies and religions that all try to market themselves to people, the Lord is inviting people to come to eat and drink satisfying sustenance that is “free.” He is not trying
to make a sale, but trying to provide needed, refreshing, wholesome nourishment and eternal
salvation to those who will take it. (Isaiah 55:1-7)

Beginning in Isaiah 55:8-11 the Lord makes it clear that his marketing plan is not the same as that of men. The Lord’s thoughts are not like those of men’s philosophy and men’s religions. The Lord’s ways and the Lord’s thoughts are beyond man’s finite minds and ability to create.

The provisions at the Lord’s banquet will produce what men desire, but cannot create. The Lord will give to men what they want if they will only ask for it. It they will seek it, the Lord will give to each man what will produce God’s purpose.

  Christian Quote from Church History
"You must understand why it is that the Word of the Father, so great and so high, has been made manifest in bodily form. He has not assumed a body as proper to His own nature, far from it, for as the Word He is without body. He has been manifested in a human body for this reason only, out of the love and goodness of His Father, for the salvation of us men."
- Athanasius in 318 AD in his book "On the Incarnation"

Something to Ponder??

Pigs, rabbits, camels and shrimp were unclean food (Leviticus 11:1-12) among the Israelites, but locusts, katydids, crickets and grasshoppers were considered clean food according to Leviticus 11:21-22 because they were insects with wings that also hopped on the ground with jointed legs.

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information

Be’er (Hb) – pit (Eng) - The Hebrew word be’er means “pit” and “well.” The be’er could have a narrow mouth or shaft that could be covered with a stone (Genesis 29:2, 10). Since the be’er was a source of water the location and possession of the be’er was valuable. The city of Beersheba took its name from being a place of an important be’er (Genesis 21:22-34; Genesis 21:30-31)
(Photo of Beersheba well HERE.)

Be’er is also used to refer to the grave for the human body (Psalm 55:23) and figuratively of the place the soul went after death (Psalms 69:15).


In 1 Samuel 31:10 the Philistines put Saul’s armor in the temple of the Ashtoreths in Beth Shean and
1 Chronicles 10:10 records that the Philistines hung his head in the temple of Dagon. Beth Shean sets just east of Mount Gilboa at the cross roads of the Jordan Valley (north-south) meets the Jezreel Valley (west-east). Archaeology has uncovered from the excavation layer of this time (1100-1000 BC) the ruins of twin temples and the city under Egyptian control. The Philistines would have been supporters of the Egyptians at the time of Saul’s defeat in 1010 BC.
