“… Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world. But I say, Did not Israel know? First Moses saith, I will provoke you to jealousy by them that are no people, and by a foolish nation I will anger you. But Esaias is very bold, and saith, I was found of them that sought me not; I was made manifest unto them that asked not after me” (Romans 10:17-20).

“I am sought of them that asked not for me; I am found of them that sought me not: (Isaiah 65:1).

In these verses, the Bible presents the astonishing and unexpected profile of our Lord in a scenario completely opposite of the nature of our thinking. We see Him found of them that sought Him not.

“Found of them that sought me not.” That is a strange statement. I thought that only seekers were finders! Is it not written, “Seek and ye shall find?” Here we have the scene turned. The finders were not seekers.
