Isaiah 55:3 Incline your ear, and come to Me; hear, that your soul may live; and I will make with you an everlasting covenant, my steadfast, sure love for David.
What is more, the prophet says, listening to God and hearing what He is really saying will feed more than your physical body; it will feed your soul. Food is eaten and gone; food has a use-by date and then goes off. But the food and drink that God is offering will make an everlasting covenant; it will last for ever and has no sell-by date or best-before conditions.
God's consistent and faithful love for His creatures - He did make us, after all, in His image and gave each of us His breath of life - is absolutely reliable and our lives (and eternal future) depend on Him.
What do we have to do? Incline our ears; listen and pay attention. Then He will tell us what to do and open His storehouse for us. Go on, ask Him!
