"Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call upon him while he is near", Isaiah 55:6.
As I meditated upon what the prophet wrote as directed by the Holy Spirit, I contemplated upon the truth that these words were not Isaiah's words, and neither were they the prophet's thoughts, but these words. and thoughts are God's Words, and Thoughts!
For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit (2 Peter 1:21).
So with that in mind we understand who is behind the idea that an encounter with the Lord is necessary because not only is it God's will but it is God's idea!
The Lord is proclaiming that his special visitations upon his people are just that...special and are designed for each individual to encounter salvation and blessing as presented by the Power of the Lord Jesus Christ.
When Revival is occurring many are too distracted by the things of the world to be bothered with sacrificing their schedule and resources to be a part of a genuine move of the Holy Spirit which is a gift from God.
Revival is a special and holy time where God wants to meet with his children. When Revival is on the Horizon will you seek him? Will you call upon him?
In the service of my King, Jesus Christ.
