Seek ye the LORD while he may be found

Seek ye the LORD while He may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near” Isaiah 55: 6

The days, would you not agree, seem to pass by so quickly, for many of us we would say, “not only the days, but the years pass by so quick.” Whatever age you are, consider the years that have passed, the days that are passed. We can do this, yet one thing we cannot do is consider or know all the days before us. We do not know how long we have. Back at the beginning of this year on January the 1st, New Years Day, we may have sat down and considered certain events that were planned, yet none of us know if we on the 31st of December will be sitting down and reflecting on those events.

Unless the Lord Jesus Christ comes first, we will die, we cannot deny this, people die every day. One day our time will come. When our souls leave this world, we will go to one of two possible places, my concern is that you will be going to heaven. In light of all this, we are told here in the Bible, “Seek ye the LORD while He may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near. “. My dear friends, oh that you would seek Him, that you would call upon Him in prayer! Seek forgiveness, seek mercy, for we are sinners who have broken God’s laws, the ten commandments, and are subject to God’s punishment. In seeking the LORD God we are to believe in Jesus. You may question why should I believe in Him. The simple answer is this: Jesus who is God, came to this world, He was born at Bethlehem, later, after a certain number of years of suffering, He died on the cross. There on the cross He faced such Divine wrath, He was punished, for sin. He stood in the place of so many sinners. So you see, if we believe in Jesus, we can be resting in the truth that He was my substitute, and I will not face punishment. Oh what a Saviour is Christ Jesus.

It is a most blessed thing to know the Lord, to know all is well for my soul. To be assured that when I die I will see Him in Heaven . If you are to know this blessing you must seek Him, but remember we do not know how long we have here on this earth. I lovingly exhort you to seek Him today.
