In April and May, we are reading through the book of the prophet Isaiah. Its major themes are judgment, comfort, and hope, applicable to Jerusalem then in the 8th century B.C. and to us now. Join our study by reading today’s scripture below and journaling about it using SOAP (click on the “What’s SOAP?” link above to learn more). Below today’s scripture is an example SOAP from our team. We love hearing from you! Please use the comment section of our website to share your SOAP, thoughts or questions on the reading, or prayer requests.

Invitation to the Thirsty
“Come, all you who are thirsty,
While We Still Can | Dyea Rowland
God’s not a distant God; He’s right there, ready to bring us great joy. Our human plans are not planned to succeed, but the plans He has for us will come to great fruition. If we come to Him while we still can, stopping the evil and wicked practices and live in His way – there is no doubt that He will carry out His plans perfectly.
Yesterday was a busy day for me; there wasn’t much time for anything – though my human plans were thought out and executed – there wasn’t much time for You. At the end of the day (and into today), I feel empty and unaccomplished; I’m sad that I lost that time with You. I don’t want to lose anymore precious days that I can spend with You. Take my selfish away; take my agenda away and make Your plans mine.
Father, I thought I accomplished great things yesterday – helping people, making a difference, working on getting the “bad guy”; moreover, being praised by “man”…it didn’t satisfy me the way being in You does. Thank You for giving me this time, to come to You and being the only thing that satisfies me. In Jesus’ wonderful name…Amen.
