Isaiah tells us to call on the Lord while he is near.
God is not planning to move away from us, but we often move far from him or erect a barrier between ourselves and him.
Don’t wait until you have drifted far away from God to seek him.
Later in life turning to him may be far more difficult.
Or God may come to judge the earth before you decide to turn to him.
Seek God now, while you can, before it is too late.
*** Thoughts from Life Application Study Bible Devotions, 15 May 2015 ***
I have made the mistake of traveling down this road and It was nearly impossible to turn around and travel back to God. What laid out there seem so good but those ruts in the road almost took me out. Only by the grace of God was I able to do a u-turn and come back to him.
Some of the movies coming out portray fast cars that drift and do they look great, until they roll over, or crash, or run off the road into a pool of water, or worse yet they go over a cliff. End of the journey!
– Have you ever crash and burned in life? How about been up ended in a relationship that went south on you and you could do nothing to stop it.
– Have you ever felt like you were drowning in life from those things that seem like they were way over your head, you couldn’t even catch your breath.
– Lastly, you found yourself heading for the edge of a cliff knowing that is not something you want to do twice let alone once, it could mean curtains, nice way of saying you could die from this.
Contrary to this a soul drifting may seem great at that moment but there is always that cliff, that could and most likely will take you out and then it’s to late to make any amends with the lover of our souls, (Father God).
I beg you to do the u-turn and seek God now, while you can, before it is too late!
