Seeking God

Oct 2018    

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;

Let him return to the Lord… He will abundantly pardon…

“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,

So are My ways higher than your ways,

And My thoughts than your thoughts…

So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth…

It shall accomplish the thing for which I sent it.”   

Isaiah 55:6-11

 

We seek God, He is missing!

But He has not been hiding;

Our evil thoughts and ways,

Have shielded us from His face.

 

When we forsake wickedness,

To seek Him in His holiness;

Then in mercy He will forgive,

And show us how to live.

 

For His thoughts are better,

And His ways are higher.

He gives blessings in abundance,

To all who heed His guidance.

 

He is the Lord of mercy,

His word shall not return empty,

And when wickedness cease,

He will grant us joy and peace.
