Passage: Isaiah 55 (New Living Translation)
Seek the (35) LORD while you can find (36) him. (37) Call on him now while he is near.
Let the wicked change their ways and (38) banish the (39) very (40) thought of doing wrong. Let them turn to the (41) LORD that he may have mercy on them. Yes, turn to our God, for he will forgive (42) generously.
(43) "My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts," (44) says the LORD. "And my ways are far beyond anything (45) you could imagine.
For just as the heavens are higher than the (46) earth, so my (47) ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than (48) your thoughts."
"The rain and snow come down (49) from the heavens and stay on the ground (50) to water the earth. They cause the grain (51) to grow, producing seed (52) for the farmer and bread (53) for the hungry.
(54) It (55) is the same (56) with my word. I (57) send it out, and it (58) always (59) produces (60) fruit. It (61) will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it.
You will live (62) in joy and peace. The (63) mountains and hills will burst (64) into song, and the trees (65) of the field will clap their hands!
Where once there (66) were thorns, (67) cypress trees will grow. Where nettles (68) grew, myrtles will sprout up.
These events will bring great honor (69) to the LORD's name; they will be an (70) everlasting sign (71) of his power and love."
