There are some calls a person can afford to ignore. There are e-mails that are simply “spam.” Some text messages are just idle conversation – even a nuisance. But when God calls, it’s an entirely different matter! He will not be easily put off. Ignoring His call comes at great risk. His summons is of utmost importance – a high honor! What if you hear, “It’s God calling?” What will you … What should you do?
On that subject, I read the following words during “coffee with the Lord” in my Bible this morning…
“Passing alongside the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew the brother of Simon casting a net into the sea, for they were fishermen. And Jesus said to them, ‘Follow me, and I will make you become fishers of men.’ And immediately they left their nets and followed Him!” (Mark 1:16–18 ESV)
And here’s what I wrote in my journal this morning… Does your heart hear the Lord calling your name? You can’t afford to delay! Drop everything when He calls you and follow Him, and do what He wants you to do!
That’s the way I want to respond whenever – wherever – whatever. He calls me to do!
