(This is actually yesterday's devotion. Oopsie!)

"But there is no peace for the wicked," says the LORD.
Isaiah 48:22, NLT

Many people cry out for comfort, security, and relief, but they haven't taken the first steps to turn away from sin and open the channels to God. They have not repented and trusted in him.

If you want true peace, seek God first. Then he will give you his peace.

Today's is good, too!

Seek the LORD while you can find him. Call on him now while he is near.
Isaiah 55:6, NLT

Isaiah tells us to call on the Lord while he is near. God is not planning to move away from us, but we often move far from him or erect a barrier between ourselves and him.

Don't wait until you have drifted far away from God to seek him. Later in life turning to him may be far more difficult. Or God may come to judge the earth before you decide to turn to him. Seek God now, while you can, before it is too late.
