We know that Northview people love to be in God’s Word and often ask for direction on different devotional apps and reading plans.

While there are several good options available through various sources, we’d like to encourage you to join in our Northview Devotional Guide which will guide you to read and reflect on the passages preached in our weekend sermons! We hope this will unite our congregation around the study of God’s Word, and help us to more readily absorb and apply the great teaching provided by our preaching pastors. Each week we’ll be providing a suggested schedule for working through a passage slowly (15 minutes a day). You’ll need a Bible and a notebook or blank paper to record your observations.

Each day we endeavour to 1) understand the story of the characters in the text; 2) connect to His story; and then 3) apply it to our story through adoration, confession and supplication.


As we seek to understand the story of the people of Israel in this text, we’ll look at the 2 sets of imperatives (commands) that are given to them: one set today, and the other set tomorrow.


  • Read Isaiah 55:1-5 
    • What is the problem being confronted in these verses according to verse 2a?
    • What is the solution? (ie. What are they commanded to do in verses 1, 2b-5?)
    • WHO is supposed to come according to 55:1? (ie. What sort of person?)
      • Does this describe you?
    • WHAT results can they expect if they hear and listen according to 55:2b-5?


Pray in confession today, reflecting on Isaiah 55:1-5. Are you spending your money and labor on things that don’t satisfy?  Do you need to come to Jesus so that your soul may live? How is this text convicting you today?


Yesterday the text instructed us to “come” and to “listen”, today we’ll look at the second set of imperatives.   


  • Read Isaiah 55:6-13
    • What is the problem being confronted in these verses according to verse 7?
    • What is the solution? (ie. What two things are they commanded to do in verse 6?)
      • What warning accompanies each command? (eg.  what does the second half of each phrase add to the command at the start of each phrase)?
    • Why should the wicked and unrighteous seek the LORD and call upon him…
      • According to verse 7b?
      • According to verses 8-9?
      • According to verses 10-11?
      • According to verses 12-13?


Pray in Adoration today.  Thank God that he has compassion on those who seek him, that his ways and thoughts are higher than ours, that his  purposes shall be accomplished, and his people will be blessed.


When Jesus was on earth, he made connections between Isaiah 55:1-5 and his ministry. 


  • Read Isaiah 55:1-3, and then read John 4:1-15, and John 7:37-38.
    • Who is Jesus offering water to in John 4:1-15?
    • What does Jesus say will happen to those who drink the water which he gives in John 4:1-15 and John 7:37-38? 

Pray in Adoration today, thanking God that Jesus provides us with living water (eternal life / life with the Spirit).




As we continue reading the story we began yesterday, we see Jesus make another connection between Isaiah 55:1-13 and his ministry.


  • Read Isaiah 55:4-5, and then read John 4:16-24
    • Isaiah 55:4-5 talks about other nations being joined to Israel. How do you see this idea reflected in Jesus’ words in John 4:16-24?
    • How do Jesus’ words to the Samaritan woman in John 4:16-24 echo the commands of Isaiah 55:6-7?


Pray in Confession today.  Do you need to forsake your ways or your thoughts and return to the LORD?


As the Bible ends, the apostle John doubles down on Isaiah 55, and the words of Jesus.  These words form the final commands of the Bible.


  • Read Revelation 21:1-8
    • How does this passage echo both the invitation and the warning found in Isaiah 55:1-7?  
      • There are two different outcomes prescribed for different people in this text. Which heritage will be yours?  How do you know?
  • Read Revelation 22:17
    • Today, are you thirsty for salvation? Do you long to know and be together with your saviour?   


Pray today in Supplication. Ask God to help you to tell others the good news about Jesus!
