Everlasting, Isaiah 55

I just wanted to share these words with you. Verse 6 -‘Seek the Lord while He may be found.’ Will He disappear if I don’t keep praying to Him.?’Draw near to God and He will draw near to you,’ we are told. Verse 8 ‘My thoughts are not your thoughts.’ Quite true, I have a brilliant thought one day and the next day I realise it is rubbish, my God is a God of constant and true thought.

Verse 11 ‘My word goes out from my mouth and it will not return to me empty.’ Maybe the times I am able to share the love of God have not been wasted and some will bear fruit even if I don’t know about it. The next verses give a lot of comfort and sound joyful. It would be lovely to go out with joy and be led forth in peace. Our war-torn world needs the peace which can only come from God.

I can imagine the mountains and hills bursting into song and mankind following on. In the high winds the trees are clapping their hands and the thorn bushes and briers disappearing. Plus the most joyful word of all ‘everlasting.’
