Isaiah 55:6: “Seek the Lord while you can find him. Call on him now while he is near.”

Call on Him now means call on Him always.  There’s always now. Right now is now. And here’s another now. If we missed an opportunity to call on the Lord, here is another now. You can do it every moment of the day.

Seeking an audition with the Lord becomes a problem when audition isn’t granted. Prophet Isaiah seems to have experienced this issue because he writes (Isaiah 55:6):

“Seek the Lord while you can find him.”

In other words, time is precious, and if we waste opportunities to meet with the Lord, there might be a day when we look for Him and He’s unavailable. To me that is quite disconcerting.

On the other hand, we all know we are mortal.

As much as our days are numbered so are our opportunities to see God come through in our lives. Waiting until we are on our death bed to have a conversation with the Lord is definitely a gamble with high stakes. How do we know that we have that luxury to contemplate before taking our last breath? We don’t really – because we don’t know the exact circumstances of our death. I believe we are best advised to seize the moment and check in with the Lord right now.

And if not now, then how about right now?

“Oh God you are my God and I will ever praise you. I will seek you in the morning and I will learn to walk in your ways and step by step you’ll lead and I will follow you all of my days.” (Rich Mullins)

The Lord is near.
