One afternoon while out moving the sheep Moses encountered God. It was not in church during a moving song or inspiring message. Nope. It was out in the wilderness. Once God had Moses’ attention, He sent Moses off to do some work for God’s people.
Do you ever hear God calling? There is no doubt – He is calling. The question is whether or not we hear (and sometimes whether we listen to) the call. Sometimes God’s till small voice comes in the prompting of the Holy Spirit. Sometimes it comes in the words another speaks into our life. Sometimes it comes in the form of one in need who crosses our path. And sometimes it comes from a sudden event, one that forces us to look within and there we see what God is calling us to.
Tuning into God’s call requires surrender and obedience. God has great plans for each and every one of us who call on His name. May we listen well when His call comes in!
