Call On Him

Waking up at 2a.m. this morning...yesterday it was 3...I have been having a hard time focusing on reading.  Knowing if I could read my bible I would be in a better frame of mind I went and got some coffee and sat down at my desk.  It wasn't working for me.  My mind just could not connect with the thought of reading!  So...I did the next best  I'm thinking that the Lord knows that sometimes we just need to hear...what we need...through a different source that always speaks to us.  For me that is music.  There was a song I had never heard called...The Eyes Of Jesus...awesome!  And then an old song...Until You've Known The Love Of God...also awesome!  Through the words of the songs the awesome love of GOD became real to me this morning.  They were just what I needed to hear.  And then He did something else for me.  I was looking on line and saw some new books on prayer...going to get as soon as they are available...and a book about knowing God more...that always intrigues me.  It looks good as well so I was reading about the author and the book.  She uses one of my favorite passages...Isaiah 55:1, 6-7.  I like to read the whole chapter so I opened my bible...Gods Word...awesome again!  I have told you all of this to say...

The Lord is awesome!  He knows...all the time...exactly what we need in every moment of our life!  Isaiah 55:1 says this...

Come, everyone who thirsts,
come to the waters;
and he who has no money,
come, buy and eat!
Come, buy wine and milk
without money and without price.

The Lord is compassionate.  He has put out the invitation addressing our need for Him...our internal spiritual need.  We long for Him even when we don't realize it is Him we are longing for!  We need His love...His grace...His mercy.  We need it more than food or water.  We need it more than human love.  We need it more than anything that is humanly life giving.  More than the air we breathe because that means nothing if we are not breathing in HIM!  The Lord gives us what is life sustaining that never ends...Himself...His all sustaining breath of life!  And it is free...

I don't know that I said all of that very well so I'm praying this makes sense.  Pick up your His Word.  I'm telling you today...His Word is awesome...alive...powerful!  Seek Him now!  Enter into His presence and stay close to Him!  No matter what is going on in your life...or in the lifes of ones you Him...believe on Him.  Don't get discouraged about things in life.  God loves you!  God wants to walk with you through the mess of life. 

Today I pray in JESUS name that if you need Him for anything you will make it your choice to call upon Him.  Talk to Him...He loves you and wants to be there for you.  HE loves you!  Seek Him while there is still time to do so! 

6 Seek the Lord while he may be found;
    call upon him while he is near;
let the wicked forsake his way,
    and the unrighteous man his thoughts;
let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him,
    and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

"until we see JESUS...face to face"
