Seek the Lord while he may be found;
call on him while he is near.
7 Let the wicked forsake their ways
and the unrighteous their thoughts…
Part of seeking God is the recognition that he is different from us – his ways and thoughts are not our ways and thoughts. If you look for God assuming he is like us, you’ll miss him! But God is more than simply different, his thoughts and ways are fundamentally better, more compassionate, graceful and true, revealing our thoughts and ways as flawed, self-centred and destructive. Recognising the difference, the next step is seeking to turn from them to something, or should I say someone, better.
Take a moment to reflect on God and his ways before coming to him humbly and asking for his forgiveness.
