Key Verse: Isaiah 55:6 “Seek ye the Lord while He may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near:”
1. Seek God’s Will
V6 “Seek ye the Lord while He may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near.”
What do people seek in this world? Many seek to prosper and get rich. We seek to be successful in life, in doing well in our study and career, and in having material possessions of the 5 Cs of Cash, Credit cards, Cars, Condominiums, Country Clubs, etc. However, God commands you to seek Him first, in fact, God commands you to seek Him first while He may be found and call Him while He may be near, why? My friends, there shall be a time when you die and you are in hell and crying and weeping to God for help and mercy. This is the time when it is a little too late. While you have the breath, while you have the heartbeat, believe in God and trust in Him and seek His perfect will in your life. God’s will is indeed perfect will for your life because He knows your needs and desires as He creates you!
2. Seek God’s Way
V8-9 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.”
As God is in heaven and we are on earth, we can never fully understand God’s ways and thoughts. As God is our Creator and we are His creatures, we can never fully understand the Creator’s ways and thoughts. So what must we do? Trust God in all our ways. God knows best. God shall make a way for us when there seems no way.
3. Seek God’s Word
V11 “So shall My Word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto Me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.”
What a promise that God’s Words shall not return void or empty! In other words, when we read or hear God’s Words in our daily bible study or quiet time or during our weekly worship service, God’s Words shall change our lives for God’s glory! As we read and obey God’s Words, we shall become Christ like and one day, we shall meet Christ face to face in heaven glory land. What a great and glorious day it shall be!
