Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:
This verse has caused much consternation. After all isn’t the Lord omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient. …Isn’t He everywhere, can’t He do anything and dosn’t He know everything.
What do you mean, while He may be found? When He is near?
I believe the writer is speaking of the condition of our hearts. There are times when we are open and receptive to the will and word of God and other times, not so much.
Like the Hebrews in the desert, the promised land was there, all they had to do was enter and the Lord would give it to them. When they refused, it was back to the desert.
When we don’t answer the knock at our hearts, we sometimes take one more trip around the mountain. …then maybe we open ourselves to the Lords love and grace. It was there all the time, we needed to reach out and ask for it. Be willing to give ourselves to Him, so He can reside within.
I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: I the Lord speak righteousness, I declare things that are right.
This is the second seek ye verse in Isaiah: The Lord is reminding us His word is true…seek Him and you will find Him. Good and perfect gifts come from the Father. The time is now, today if you will harken unto the voice of the Lord, you can find peace, comfort, forgiveness, Mercy and the Grace of Salvation.
Seek ye out of the book of the Lord, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall want her mate: for my mouth it hath commanded, and his spirit it hath gathered them.
This is an important verse for Christians, this is a “Billism”; something I have interpreted to mean:
We need to find the book, read the book, none of its promises will fail. The Lord watches over His word to proform it and the Spirit is here to see that it is done.
Lord help us to love and obey so You might use us to lead others to You. Amen

Good word, Bill. It spoke to my heart today. Many times we complain because God doesn’t seem to hear us. We forget His word to “ask, and keep on asking, knock and keep on knocking, seek and keep on seeking!”
it means alot that you read them. .how is everyone?
