Your Man Is Calling
Ladies, think back to the last guy you were completely smitten by. If it’s the guy you are currently with now, think back to when you all first started dating. Do you remember when you would get all excited when his name would show up on the phone? I know you probably answered the phone within the first two rings and with the sweetest voice ever! There would be so much admiration and joy in your voice. Everything he said you would giggle to and agree with. There was just something special about that guy. So why don’t we give the same reaction to God when He calls?
God is constantly calling on us to do a great work within His Kingdom. There is so much purpose that has been placed inside of us. God even has a plan for our purpose but who can be honest and say at times when we receive the call from God we hesitate to answer? We get nervous because when God calls, more than likely, there is some stretching that is getting ready to take place.
When God calls us, He is calling us to a higher standard, high moral ground, and, dare I say it, to a place where sacrifice is required. So much like toddlers, when we are asked to do things that are outside of our own will we have a tendency to fuss or throw minor fits. We fight God instead of responding to Him with that same sweet voice we have for earthly men. We will place God on hold while we figure out what we want to do but in the meantime we give all of ourselves to people and things that are possibly out of the will of God. All God wants from us is to answer His call. He is the one with our best interest in mind.
Ladies, your man is calling! God is calling us because He has an assignment he needs us to fulfill. He is calling us because He wants to know our faith is rooted in Him. He is calling us because He wants to fulfill the promises He made us. In the Bible it says in 2 Corinthians 1:20 “For all of God's promises have been fulfilled in Christ with a resounding "Yes!" And through Christ, our "Amen" (which means "Yes") ascends to God for his glory.” When you answer, answer Him with the same sweet voice. Answer with admiration for His glory. Sweetly tell God ‘Yes’. God is the first man in our lives and when He calls, all our focus needs to be on Him. He wants our attention. He will never fail you. Your man is calling. It’s time to answer.
