Seek the LORD while he may be found; call on him while he is near. Let the wicked forsake his way and the evil man his thoughts. Let him turn to the LORD, and he will have mercy on him, and to our God, for he will freely pardon. Isaiah 55:6-7 (NIV)
Call On Me
That is exactly what I will do. What exactly will you do? I will seek you with all my heart and mind and soul and strength. I will call on you with all that is within me. Will you find me when you seek me? Will I hear you when you call on me? Yes, I believe that I will find you. Yes, I believe that you will hear me. Why is that? Why is your belief so strong? What makes you so sure that you will find me, and I will hear you? I believe your promises. I believe that your word is good. Everything you say is worthy of full acceptance. What is my promise? If I forsake wicked ways and evil thoughts and turn to you, not only will I find you, and you will hear from me, but you will have mercy on me and pardon all my sin. Yes, that is my promise. Yes, that is my word. Yes, that is what you can count on. Thank you, Lord.
Will you make forsaking wicked ways and evil thoughts an ongoing pattern in your life? Will you continually reject thoughts and ways that are not good and right and pleasing to me? Yes Lord, I will. Will you keep on turning away from the opinions and values and practices of the world so you can seek me with all your heart and mind and soul and strength? Will you ask me to forgive your sins and cleanse all your unrighteousness? Yes Lord, I will. Will you keep on calling on me every day as you love, follow and serve me? Will you live and walk in an intimate relationship with me? Will you listen to my voice? Will you receive my counsel? Will you follow my instruction? Will you follow me to where I lead you? Will you do what I ask of you? Yes Lord, I will. That is very good. Then you will find me. Then you will hear from me. Then I will guard and guide the course of your life. Then my favor will rest on you. That is my hope. That is my dream. That is my desire. That is very good. You will have what you have asked of me.
Lord, I will seek you with all my heart. I will call on you with all that is within me. Thank you for being near to me. You will hear my voice as I turn my life over to you completely. Thank you for your kindness, mercy and love. Thank you for pardoning all my sin. Amen
