“If you consent and obey, you will eat the best of the land” (Isaiah 1:19).
To consent and obey is to affirm and apply to one’s life. Prerequisite to receiving God’s best is the pursuit of a life desiring only to please him. This verse, along with all others related to the promises of God, assumes you have an insatiable appetite for the menu items of his banquet table—service, sacrifice, obedience, and commitment. With the benefit of blessings comes the burden of responsibilities.
