Comprehensive Direction

Yesterday’s post ended asking, “What does it look like to seek the Lord?”  There may be the beginnings of an answer in Isaiah 66:2 – 3.  Take a moment to read those and note the central contrast.
What is one crucial way to seek God?
Here is the contrast I saw there:

The one to whom the Lord will look The one who is looking to their own ways
Humble VS Chosen their own ways
Contrite of Spirit Their Soul delights in their abominations
Trembles at God’s Word

It seems that there is a binary choice here. Either one chooses to follow God’s Word or they choose to follow their own way. So it seems that a key component to seeking the Lord is a commitment to humbly and contritely engage with the Word of God so that it creates a deep respect for Him. That seems to indicate a life pattern not something that is not one and done.
