Searching and Finding

God is not hiding or concealing himself. He is eagerly looking forward, anticipating the day that we turn to him–not just those who are ‘called by his name’, but all mankind.
==========================
Scripture

Isaiah 65:1
“I was ready to be sought by those who did not ask for me; I was ready to be found by those who did not seek me. I said, “Here I am, here I am,” to a nation that was not called by my name.”
Observation
What an amazing, sad, inspiring passage! God is not hiding, or concealing himself. He is eagerly looking forward, anticipating the day that we turn to him–not just those who are ‘called by his name’, but all mankind. Yet how sad, that many have chosen to ignore and disregard the savior as he calls “here I am!”
Application
There have been moments on the journey when it seemed like God was nowhere to be see. As I’ve looked back on each of these moments, it’s become clear that God never went anywhere. He is unchanging! The only question is, ‘where is my heart in relation to him?’
He wants me to seek him. He desires to be pursued by me–and the truth is, he has already sought me and pursued me, so that I can find him!
This week, I want to see God and discover all that he wants me to find. I want to know him the way he wants to be known, and find him just as he wants to be found.
Prayer
God, thank you for making a way for me to find you. I choose to seek you with my whole heart, and I want to know you better each day.
