When I read Isaiah 65:1-16, especially verse two about a rebellious people who walk in a way that is not good following their own devices, I visualize a man in a big city walking down the sidewalk with a mass of people about to cross over a busy intersection. He's got his face buried in his mobile device. You've seen this man. Maybe you've even been this man. It's such a prevalent sight these days. Then I began thinking about our society and the wandering people looking for peace and hope in every direction but up. They are seeking but not finding, for the simple reason that they are seeking in all the wrong places. When all along God is saying, "Here I am, here I am." all around us.
"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. I spread out My hands all the day to a rebellious people, who walk in a way that is not good, following their own devices." Isaiah 65:1-2
He is STILL ready to be sought by those who do not ask and He is ready to be found by those who do not seek. What a lovely thought! He is literally saying through the circumstances of our lives, "Hear I am, here I am." He spreads out His hands all the day long saying, "Come!"
There are people all around you, seeking the Truth. They are looking for the Light and stumbling through intersections of religion with their faces buried in the current trend. Jesus Christ is nothing new, He's not changed. He's the same yesterday, today, and forever. He's ready to be sought. Ready to be found.
Who will cross your intersection today seeking the truth you know? Be the light in your little part of the world. Look for the seekers. Share the Truth! You were created for such a time as this.
