We do not seek Him in vain!
During these difficult and tumultuous times, many succumb to hopelessness and fear but I have come with a message of hope. The Lord is still in the prayer answering business!
“I have not spoken in secret, In a dark place of the earth; I did not say to the seed of Jacob, ‘Seek Me in vain’; I, the LORD, speak righteousness, I declare things that are right (Isaiah 45:19 NKJV).”
The prophet Isaiah speaks on behalf of God to the coming pagan king, Cyrus. Cyrus was anointed and appointed by God to deliver the children of Isreal from Babylon. However, there was nothing special about Cyrus that caused God to move.
There was something special about God’s heart for His people. He loved them with an everlasting love and He heard them crying out to Him for deliverance. Today, God is the same. He loves His people and He will answer them.
“It is a wicked thing to think God ever says to His people, “Seek Me in Vain,” David Guzik said in his commentary on Isaiah 45.
God wants us to bring our troubles to Him, Whatever they are! When times are at their worst cry out to God even more. HE WILL ANSWER YOU!
This is the Word of the Lord for you today and every day that you are breathing! Whatever it is, He wants you to bring it to Him BECAUSE He will set it right, if not in this life, then in the life that is to come.
“You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart (Jer 29:13 NASB).”
“And without faith, it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him (Heb 11:6 NASB).”
