“Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near.”
There will be a time when we will seek the Lord, and we won’t find Him. But now that you can still find Him, seek Him.
The thief on the left side misused this opportunity to seek the face of Jesus when He was very close (Luke 23:38-43). (Acts 24:25) Felix delayed the time he had to seek the Lord. (Luke 16:19-25.) The rich man said a prayer of forgiveness yet God didn’t answer him. God is merciful but He couldn’t answer because he was praying at the wrong time and in the wrong place. (Luke 19:1-9.)
Zaccheus determined to seek Jesus and found Him and repented. Blind Bartimeus sought the Lord earnestly and received his healing, even though the people tried to stop him because of his disability.
Perhaps if Judas had sought him, he would have been forgiven. We must understand that the day of salvation will not be forever (anything can happen), and this should lead us into seeking the Lord NOW. It is dangerous to keep ignoring the Holy Spirit when He constantly instructs us. A time will come when you will desire to obey, but the door to that particular blessing would’ve been closed because of disobedience.
Brethren, stop tarrying unnecessarily.

Thought for the day: Stop pushing the voice/nudge of the Spirit aside. Obey now.
