Calling

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAShhhh, can you hear Him? Is He speaking to us?
Could He be saying…
Hold on, I’m calling you. Are you ready? I sense an excitement within you, a longing, a desire, all for Me. When you’re ready to step out from where you are there is more than you have imagined waiting and I’ll be there to go with you into the new adventures of life, whether it be in your own neighborhood or beyond. It just takes a willing heart and feet. You won’t regret saying yes, granted it may not be all thrills and easy, but it will be worth it. You were meant for more than an ordinary life, the more comes when you join in co-labor with Me. Doors and windows will open you have not seen before, divine encounters and opportunities await you. Trust me, take my hand, let us begin – one step, one yes, at a time.
 
Ever wonder what the Lord’s call to the great adventurers in the faith from the past sounded like? Was it a whisper, did it sound like thunder or deep waters? Did the earth move beneath their feet or just within their spirit? Did any grow faint and need to be strengthened by ministering angels before they could proceed forward? How many argued before saying yes?

I’m certain each of their experiences were unique, individually theirs, and compelling; just as He is individually calling us today to co-labor with Him. To step out from living just an ordinary life and begin to live an extraordinary one that defies our imagination. For God, who by his mighty power at work within us is able to do far more than we would ever dare to ask or even dream of—infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, or hopes (Eph 3:20 TLB). 
Being an Olympic year athletes are “going for the gold”, should we as believers in Christ not also run this life’s race as if to win the prize, to go for something more than ordinary?  Paul prayed for our spiritual growth in Eph 3:14 – 20, what if we were to turn his prayer into a personal prayer for ourselves, that God out of his glorious, unlimited resources would give us the mighty inner strength of his Holy Spirit, that Christ would be more and more at home in our hearts, living with us as we trust him. That our roots would go down deep into the soil of God’s marvelous love; and are able to feel, understand, and experience how long, how wide, how deep and how high his love really is; and so at last be filled up with God himself.  The Lord knows the plans he has for us, for our future, for our good, for hope.
Shhhh, can you hear Him? He is calling us!
