“Seek the Lord while He may be found; call upon Him while He is near” (Isaiah 55:6).

That God’s forgiveness, and his many other spiritual blessings, are discovered only in our seeking and calling does not mean they are hidden; that they are things God would prefer to withhold. Seeking and calling speaks to the urgency of the hour and what must be our undistracted pursuit if they are to be experienced. It’s the realization that the Spirit of God will not always strive with man (Genesis 6:3). That is, say “No” often enough to the promptings and leading of the Holy Spirit and, eventually, you can become so desensitized and indifferent that He cannot even break through the hardness of the calcified human heart. Today is called the day of salvation (2 Corinthians 6:2) because it is the only day of which you can be certain.
