"Behold, the LORD hath proclaimed unto the end of the world, Say ye to the daughter of Zion, Behold, thy salvation cometh; behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him. And they shall call them, The holy people, The redeemed of the LORD: and thou shalt be called, Sought out, A city not forsaken"

I have spent the day this Sunday in an attitude of thanksgiving, for my memory of my conversion was quickened to me today. How the Lord sought me out! I tried for six months to evade Him and ignore Him, but still, He pursued me and sought me out. I really cannot say that I looked for the Lord. He came looking for me and he was like the hound of heaven.

I'm not sure why He pursued me so. What makes me so special? I don't know. My grandparents and others prayed for me. Perhaps, it was just the sovereign will of God. Perhaps, it was in response simply to the prayer of Jesus.

I don't know the reason, but I'm glad He didn't give up on me until my understanding had been enlightened.

And the thought occurred to me today that I'm not alone. There are many others of you out there who are just like me and Paul the Apostle. You weren't looking for God, but He came up and knocked you off your high horse.

Isaiah called us "sought out" ones a city not forsaken. It would be fitting if we could all live together, and we will, when we reach the heavenly city, the new Jerusalem. There, we can continue to express our thanks that we were pursued and sought out and that the Lord did not give up on us when we rejected him once, or twice or three times or four. No.....He kept on coming. Praise be to God and thanks to Him that He accomplished His objective.

And now we pray for all those who are called to join the city not forsaken. Those who are currently resisting stubbornly. We pray that the Son of God would be revealed to them and in them, in the name of the Lord Jesus, in spite of all their resistance. Don't give up on them Lord....pursue them...seek them out, in Jesus name. Amen.
