    Seek the LORD while he may be found; call on him while he is near.
    —Isaiah 55:6 (NIV)
    Do we want to learn holiness with terrible struggles, and sore affliction, and the plague of much remaining evil? Then wait before you turn to God.
    ... Frederick W. Robertson (1816-1853), Sermons Preached at Trinity Chapel, Brighton, v. III, Boston: Ticknor & Fields, 1859, p. 331 (see the book)
    See also Isa. 55:6; Ps. 95:7-11; 119:60; Pr. 27:1; Jer. 13:16; Amos 4:6-11; Matt. 5:25; Luke 9:59-62
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your mercy is near; let me not delay to receive it.
