Isaiah 55 The tenderness of Isaiah the prophet to his people rings forth in this passage. As they struggle between what is right and what is evil they need to have a fresh perspective on who God is and why they need to turn to Him. Isaiah says “seek the Lord while He may be found…” God reveals Himself to man but not always do they accept His presence. There is a warning here: God may not always be found. Beware of rejecting Him.
Jesus came as a babe and the world rejoiced but when He became a man and began to do miracles they asked: “We know that God has spoken to Moses, but as for this man, we do not know where He is from.” [Jn 9] When He performed miracles they scoffed and refused to believe. But Jesus quietly refused to retaliate. He knew men’s hearts were hard and Isaiah saw this same hardness setting in so he warned them: seek God early, call unto Him while he is nearby.
Where are you? Are you seeking God? He is waiting for you to call to Him that He may enter and abide with you. He is knocking at the door of your heart. He promises that if you hear his voice and open the door He will come in and abide with you.
