It’s time to seek the lord
Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me. Isaiah 6:8
God is not only merciful and loving, but is also a jealous God. Looking at the journey and relationship of the children of Israel with God, we could see in clear terms how God cannot and will not tolerate their indifference to Him.
Taking a clear look into our lives today, have we not forsaken the Almighty? How many of us are in relationship or committed to God and His work? Many are indifferent to service in the kingdom and have left the work undone. Only very few are labouring in His vineyard, as many have become spectators in the house.
Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, This people say, The time is not come, the time that the LORD’S house should be built. Haggai 1:2
Love of money, position and cares of this world have taken over, and many are compromising their faith daily. Many have forsaken the Almighty, even though they still bear the title or the look of a child of God. Many have left the place of prayer, study of the word. The cares of this world have taken over (2Timothy 3:1-5).
Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? …….
But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, 2 Peter 3:3.
God is sending a message to us as His children to return, and be committed to Him. What matters now is to hold God tight for the one that gains the world and loses his soul is a great loser.
Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless. 2Peter 3:14
And take the ark of the LORD, and lay it upon the cart; and put the jewels of gold, which ye return him for a trespass offering, in a coffer by the side thereof; and send it away, that it may go. 1 Samuel 6:8
I was in His presence and He said, “Let my people return to me (God), be committed to me and my word, and I will bless their obedience and send them help.”
It is time to know God as your God and not just the God that is being preached to you on service days. Study God’s Word and labour in the place of prayer. Go back to God, rededicate your life to him, forsake all the worldly pleasure and sin and let Him be your GOD.
It is time to be personal with God – LET HIM BE YOUR GOD!
It is time to take the ARK of the LORD. He will defend and prosper you.
