[QTVOTD] Seek, Call, Forsake, Turn…

“Seek, inquire for, and require [need] the Lord while He may be found [claiming Him by necessity and by right]; call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return to the Lord, and He will have love, pity, and mercy for him, and to our God, for He will multiply to him His abundant pardon.” Isaiah 55:6-7 ->me: Verse 6 is one I have heard a lot in my life but followed by verse 7 it is so impactful. Verse 6 points to a recognition of urgency while the day of opportunity lasts; this is an acknowledgement and renunciation of sin and a return to the God of compassion and pardon – In short a submission of WHATEVER we think or do to what the Lord thinks and does. SEEK -> Not to look for something lost but to come with purpose and diligence to where the Lord is to be found. Speaks to commitment, determination, persistence, in spiritual concern and in longing for the Lords presence and fellowship. CALL -> at one and the same time to acknowledge God in worship and appeal to Him in need. FORSAKE & TURN -> these are the two sides of true repentance; turning from sin and your own way and turning to God and His way. When I do this (SEEK, CALL, FORSAKE, and TURN) God will have love, pity, and mercy on me; He will make His pardon abundant many times over.
