Friday – Prophets

Reading – Isaiah 55-57

Highlight Verse:

“Seek the Lord while you can find him. Call on him now while he is near.”
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭55‬:‭6‬ ‭NLT‬‬

My first thought when I see this is “Isn’t the Lord always near?”

But then there are seasons.

Here in Colorado, it is Miller moth season. In fact, one found its way into the house and is fluttering around my lamp. Most likely, by morning its fluttering will be over and its life spent.

That moth’s life seems very short to us. But, compared to the eternity that awaits, our lives are a blink of an eye.

On average, we have less than 80 years to make the call for our eternity.

Some more, some less.

One mistake many people make is assuming that eternal life begins when we die. They think they have to “live it up” and have their “fun” while they are young. Then, when they are older, they can get more serious about God.

I found out one August day in 1977 that eternal life begins when we start to live it for God.

The most joy filled times of my life have been when I am living in the center of His will.

The most miserable times were when I was living for myself.

What times in your life have been the most joyful?
Has your true eternal life begun yet? If not, what’s holding you back?
