Isaiah 55: 6-7
This verse is immediately followed by what to me was a much more familiar verse:
Isaiah 55: 8-9
Verses 6 and 7 in the first passage spoke to me so much. This was because the importance of seeking the Lord now (and not delaying) is something which is much more frequently found in the New Testament. Yet this piece was from the Old Testament. Calling upon the Lord while He is still near is important. This is because one day, Jesus will come again and there will not be the choice to seek Him any more - He will be there.
God wants us to come to Him out of choice, not by being forced to know Him whether we want to or not.
