Maybe some of us do not understand how much more we receive when we are obedient to God’s call and respond to what He calls us to do? Maybe there are some who really don’t care and no matter what they are not going any farther. It does not make any difference at what spectrum you are at; the only thing that matters is where you want to be. What’s your need, what are the desires of your heart? Whether you are on the fence or just waiting, God has so much more for you if you would only hear and answer His call.
I really don’t think that many of know how much God wants for us because if we did, as soon as God began to speak to us we would be on the move. I know, I have missed this many times and I don’t want to miss any more. Whether we know it or not, God loves us and He loves us with a love that surpasses anything we will ever know. Look at the sacrifice He gave to prove that love. If you don’t know how much He loves us, just look at how much He loves Jesus. He loves Jesus so much that He sent Him to come and save us.
Maybe there are some of you that think I don’t deserve that love because, of who I am or what I have done. That makes no difference to God. He loves you period and you don’t have to do anything, He just flat out loves you. You don’t have to get your life together, you don’t have to change yourself before you even entertain the fact of answering God’s call, God will meet you right where you are at and all you have to do is surrender. There is not one of us that have not had to do that at one point in our life. We were not born Christians, just the opposite, the bible says we are born sinners and when we reach the age of accountability we have a decision to make and we have to make it on our own. Jesus said, I am the way the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father except through me. (John 14:6) That means, you can do all of the good in the world or do anything you want, but if you do not have a personal relationship with Jesus then you are lost.
You need to surrender and answer God’s call. He is reaching out to you and He is speaking to you all you need to do is answer. You might ask yourself how is He speaking to me because I don’t hear a single thing. I submit that you are not listening. Every day we face things in our life and everyday He gives us direction. You think you want to do this but something tells you to do it this, you have no idea where that thought comes from and you do it the way you want only to find it was wrong and that you should have done it the way your thoughts went. Or, you think this and get a conviction in your heart it is wrong yet you do it anyway and again it is wrong. Get the picture? God is speaking to you and you didn’t even know it. The same thing applies when we reach the bottom and have nowhere else to turn. You ask yourself, I don’t know what to do or how to do it and then there is this still small voice inside of you that says, I love you come and follow me. That was my call, I was at the very bottom and from out of nowhere I sensed something inside calling me to go to church and hear what they were saying. It was against my better judgment, but then it was my judgment that got me to the very bottom of my life, so I went and it was the most amazing thing I had ever experienced. The pastor was speaking and it seemed like I was the only one other than him who was in the building. At the end of his message he asked if there was anyone who wanted to receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior and the next thing I knew I was standing up front answering that call. That was the best decision I ever made and I will never forget it, God called and I answered even though I had no understanding of what was next.
God loves you and He is calling you. Calling you to surrender, calling you change, calling you to follow Him. If there is never anything you do in your life that you feel is worthwhile, answering God’s call is the most worthwhile thing you will ever do and nothing will ever replace it. Your decision to answer the call of God is life changing and you will never be the same again and I mean never be the same again. God loves you, hear Him and answer now.
May God pour out His blessings in your life far beyond anything your could ever imagine or imagine.
