I was ready to respond, but no one asked for help. I was ready to be found, but no one was looking for me. I said, ‘Here I am, here I am!’ to a nation that did not call on my name.
Isaiah 65:1 (NLT)
If we were honest with ourself, we would remember times when we thought, “Where was God? Why wasn’t my prayer answered? Why did this happen to me?” It is easy to feel these feelings and have these questions when tragedy catches us off guard. But today’s verse poses an opposite scenario that has a lot of bearing on this spiritual dilemma. The Prophet Isaiah was quoting God saying that He was ready to help us but no one asked for help. Nobody was looking for Him. God was asking for man to respond to Him but nobody did. God wants a relationship with us but do we want one with Him? He is so much more than a 911 call when emergency strikes. He is the God who is there, the God who loves us and wants to impart to us wisdom, understanding and a deep spirituality. And ironically, it is these very things that get us through the difficult times. Today, God is waiting. He desires fellowship with you. Will you call on Him?
Dear God, forgive me for my apathy. Forgive me for not responding to Your calling out to me. I come today and ask God that You would guide me, teach me, fellowship with me. I desire a deeper relationship with You. In Jesus’ name.
