Day 11

Day Eleven:  Being Fed with the Promises of Jacob

“If you turn back your foot from {unnecessary travel on} the Sabbath, from doing your own pleasure on My holy day, And call the Sabbath a {spiritual} delight, and the holy day of the Lord honorable, And honor it, not going your own way Or engaging in your own pleasure Or speaking your own idle words, Then you will take pleasure in the Lord, And I will make you ride on the high places of the earth, And I will feed you with the {promised} heritage of Jacob your father…”. Isaiah 58:13-14

Another promise God says will be ours if we will delight in keeping the Sabbath is that we will be fed with the heritage of Jacob.

God promised to bless Jacob’s descendants, and all families of the earth through him (Gen. 28:14).
God promises to feed us with the same heritage.

The word “feed” is used in the present tense.  Jacob’s blessing was for the present and the future, and so it ours.

God promises to make us ride on the high places of the earth, and be fed with wonderful blessings when we delight in His presence.

What a wonderful way to live!
Challenge:  Make attending God’s house a priority for the remaining days of this fast. 
  • Even Wednesday evenings
Don’t let anything keep you from prioritizing God’s Presence.

Then, look at the ways God makes you to ride upon the high places and how He blesses you.
Start a notebook or note section in your phone of all the situations God is beginning to help you triumph in and list the blessings coming your way.
