Seek the Lord

This passage from Isaiah 55 is an urgent call to come to or to return to the Lord and to be restored to a right relationship with God. The people, evidently, were complacent and settled in their worldliness and wickedness, like some of us may be today. So, God asks us why we waste our money and energies on what will never satisfy us. He counsels us to come to him, and to receive his living water welling up in us unto eternal life, i.e. the Spirit of God, or else to receive spiritual refreshment and renewal.

The call is urgent, because we never know if we have tomorrow. We must turn from our sins, and turn to God via faith in Jesus Christ. God’s word will be fulfilled. He will pardon our sins when we turn from our wickedness, and we experience his grace and mercy. Then he will restore us and will bless us with great spiritual blessings. The return to God will be accompanied by much joy and peace, and will produce much spiritual fruitfulness to the glory of God.

Seek the Lord
An Original Work / July 20, 2012

Based off Isaiah 55

“Come to Me all you who thirst; come to waters.
Listen to Me, and eat what’s good today,
And your soul will delight in richest of fare.
Give ear to Me, and you will live.
I have made an eternal covenant with you.
Wash in the blood of the Lamb.”

Seek the Lord while He may be found; call on Him.
Let the wicked forsake his way, in truth.
Let him turn to the Lord, and he will receive mercy.
Freely, God pardons him.
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,”
declares the Lord, our God.

“My word that goes out of My mouth is truthful.
It will not return to Me unfulfilled.
My word will accomplish all that I desire,
And achieve the goal I intend.
You will go in joy, and be led forth in peace.
The mountains will burst into song… before you,
And all of the trees clap their hands.”

    • Thank you. All glory to God. No, songwriting is not part of my daily time with God. These were all written over the course of five years. The last one was written in 2016, I believe. Each song takes about 3 days to write, from start to finish. I shared them online as they were written, but now I have a lot of new readers who didn’t see them before, so I have been sharing one aday.

      All but two of them the musical instruments are computer generated. One was professionally recorded and this one was recorded semi professionally by afriend and musician who did the instrumentation and arrangement. He did agreat job. He is avery talented young man.

      Although God doesn’t have me write songs everyday, he does include songs in my daily quiet times with him, and they always fit with where I am reading scripture for that day. So, that is why there is asong included with every blog post, i.e. the devotional ones.

      It is a blessing from God that he has gifted me with songwriting. Maybe there will be new ones coming soon.
