While He May Be Found
While He May Be Found
Sometimes our time for finding a lost item is limited. There are ever so many scenarios for needing to find something in a limited time. We are constrained by so many factors. But, our very most important need to find something holds our eternal life in the balance. Isaiah 55:6-8 tells us,
Seek the LORD while He may be found;
Call upon Him while He is near.
Let the wicked forsake his way
And the unrighteous man his thoughts;
And let him return to the LORD,
And He will have compassion on him,
And to our God,
For He will abundantly pardon.
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the LORD.
Our very, most important need is to find the LORD, our God. He wants us to abandon our wickedness and sinful thoughts, as we realize that only the LORD is what we need to satisfy all our needs.
If we continue in our worldly wicked ways, God might no longer be “near”. So we need to “return to the LORD” as soon as we can so that He can “have compassion” on us and “abundantly pardon” us for all of our wicked ways.
When we feel doubtful and anxious about the thought of returning “to the LORD”, we need to calm down and remember that He compassionately reminded us, “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways”. God is different from crooked, deceitful mankind. When God forgives — He really forgives and forgets. That’s because He is holy and righteous. Everything He has said is trustworthy.
We only have this short lifetime to “seek the LORD”. We don’t even know how much longer we will live. Time just goes by so quickly.
We will find the LORD and all His promises in His word — the Bible.
So glad that God shows us how to find Him, we say, “Hallelujah! LORD, thank You for Your compassionate and patient love.”
A Christian devotional to glorify the LORD of lords and GOD of gods.
Pray for our country.
The LORD made this day, let us rejoice and be glad in Him.
The word of the LORD is tried;
He is a shield to all who take refuge in Him.
Sing for joy in the LORD, O you righteous ones;
Praise is becoming to the upright.
How blessed are those who dwell in Thy house!
They are ever praising Thee.
Just as a father has compassion on his children,
So the LORD has compassion on those who fear Him.
O give thanks to the LORD, for He is good;
For His lovingkindness is everlasting.
Glory in His holy name;
Let the heart of those who seek the LORD be glad.
Not that I have already obtained it, or have already become perfect, but I press on in order that I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus.
