Today's Hebrew Word is from Isaiah 55:6- "Seek the Lord while He may be found..."
"Seek" is from the word דרש DARASH: "to tread or frequent, follow (in pursuit or search), seek or ask, spec. to worship." It is active seeking such as the famous verses from Matthew (ask, seek, knock). It is contrasted with another word which is used in the same verse: "Call on Him while He is near." which is from the word קרא KARA': "to call; to read"

It is one thing to think that "God is my co-pilot" and if something goes wrong I just call and He's there to take over. It's a different mental state, knowing I am a passenger on a ship which God is steering and I'm welcome to come up to the bridge and pester the captain with questions.
