A few thoughts from a prophet

Seek the Lord while he may be found, 
call upon him while he is near;

Let the wicked abandon their ways, 
and the unrighteous their thoughts;

Return to the Lord, who will have mercy; 
to our God, who will richly pardon.

‘For my thoughts are not your thoughts, 
neither are your ways my ways,’ says the Lord.

‘For as the heavens are higher than the earth, 
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.

‘As the rain and the snow come down from above, 
and return not again but water the earth,

‘Bringing forth life and giving growth, 
seed for sowing and bread to eat,

‘So is my word that goes forth from my mouth; 
it will not return to me fruitless,

‘But it will accomplish that which I purpose, 
and succeed in the task I gave it.’

Isaiah
