God Is Never Far Away

In review of Isaiah 55:6 it says, "Seek the lord while you can find him. Call on him now while he is near."

Bottom Line:
Turn to the Lord! He can still be found. Call on him, he is near.

What this means to me:
I can always count on and rely on the Lord, he is never far away. I should learn to call on him more often and letting him know what I need or what I’m concerned about.

What I’m learning is that God never moves away from me. Isaiah reminds me of this in this verse. There are times when God seems far away, however when this seems to be happening it more likely related to me moving away from God than Him moving away from me.  This can happen because I can put in a barrier between myself and God through un-confessed sin and not wanting to deal with something he is bringing up in my life to deal with.

It is far better for me to not drift away from God but rather to continually make it a priority to meet with Him frequently. If I wait too long, it It may be harder to turn back, or worse yet, God may come to judge the world before I decide to turn to him.

In summary, God wants to give me so much, I only need to remember to turn to him. He is always present and ready to hear from me.
