I played phone tag with a friend yesterday. Finally late in the evening we got to talk. She was calling me early in the day for a casual phone visit. By evening though, she and I were trying to connect for something more serious. A mutual friend has been in a motorcycle accident. All of us get lots of phone calls and we assume when the call is missed that it was a casual call that can be answered or returned later. But unless there’s a message left, we really don’t have a clue as to the call. It’s the personal contact with the friend on the other end of the line that connects us to the real reason for the call.
God is calling you. Have you answered? Have you spoken with Him in person? His calls are always important. He has called you first and foremost to accept His invitation to be born again. No light thing, this call. Everything changes when you accept it. The personal touch of a Savior on the Cross, a Redeemer in the Grave and a Sanctifier risen again makes all the difference. Once we’ve accepted that call, life gets oh so wonderful. But that isn’t the only call we will ever get.
Oh beloved, God is calling you to special service. You can call on the Lord for clarity right now. With God there’s no waiting time. He always answers every single call made in Spirit and Truth to Him. There are things you have been unable to do a thing about that God is giving you the call to take care of. He is calling you to walk into the kingdom of darkness as The Light bearer to take back that which was stolen from you. Whether it’s your dignity, your rights as a believer, your situation, your future, or your calling. It’s time to heed that call precious one. Not only does God call you, He equips you. You don’t have to go in your own light or your own strength or your own power. He makes you able! He has given you all strength to overcome the enemy’s tactics. You may see yourself as a fearful weak person who has no strength, but God says you are an extraordinary example of His power, glory and grace. In the flesh there’s no way to handle the assaults, the assignments, the burdens or God’s call. But through Christ, you are valiantly going forth to complete your calling and to live free of the crank calls made on your life by the enemy of your soul.
God loves you and He’s for you. That’s why you never have to hesitate to answer His call. He won’t call you to be or do or say something that is impossible, for with Him all things are possible. He has made the way for your call to be completed. Trust Him today, walk forward carrying His Light and see what He will do. No other call will ever be so compelling and so life altering as the call of God on your life!
I Thessalonians 5:24 Faithful is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass.
Isaiah 9:2 The people who walk in darkness Will see a great light; Those who live in a dark land, The light will shine on them.
2 Thessalonians 1:11 With this in mind, we constantly pray for you, that our God may make you worthy of His calling, and that by His power He may bring to fruition your every desire for goodness and your every deed prompted by faith.
2 Samuel 22:33 It is God who arms me with strength and keeps my way secure. (NIV)
