Unlimited: You Have Been Sought Out
Oct 2, 2017 1191
You shall be called Sought Out (Isaiah 62:12, NKJV).
The surpassing grace of God is seen very clearly when he tells us that we were not only sought but sought out. There is a difference. If you drop something on the floor, you seek it – you look for it. But ‘seeking out’ is far more intense, more persevering.
It is as if we are some precious piece of gold that has fallen into a sewer, and the search for the gold is intense and detailed. The search goes on until the treasure is found. There is no thought of abandoning it because what is lost is too valuable to let go. This is the way God seeks us out. This is what happens when God’s mercy seeks us out to show us the Gospel.
Glory and thanks to God for this endless love and grace; we were sought out! There were no shadows dark enough and no filthiness capable of hiding us! God found us and brought us home! Praise God for his infinite love, for his power to restore us!
That anyone should be sought out is matchless grace, but that we should be sought out is grace beyond degree! We can find no reason for it except God’s matchless love, and can only lift up our heart in wonder, and praise the Lord that today we wear the name of “Sought out.” – Charles Spurgeon (adapted)
Eli’s Reflection: Take some time to reflect from where God has sought you out, and where he has called you to be. In what way can you praise him today for his wonderful grace?
