Be dressed ready for service and keep your lamps burning,
(Luke 12:35 (NIV))
Is your lamp burning?
Is the fire inside of you still as hot and bright as it was when you first believed?
Are you ready to respond to God’s call whenever and wherever it may come?
It is human nature to get excited and then have the excitement slowly fade away. It is human nature to get tired of waiting on the sidelines. Sadly enough, that is what too many members of the Body of Christ have been doing. We have been waiting on the sidelines! We have been listening for God’s call in the midst of the noise of the world and we have let the world interfere with our ability to hear clearly!
Be still, and know that I am God,
(Psalm 46:10a (NIV))
It is my prayer that you will take the time to sit in God’s presence, to take the time to let the distractions of the world fade away until you find yourself feeling the warmth of God’s love like you have never felt it before. When you feel the closeness to God, then you will be better equipped to know God’s own heart. You will be better equipped to listen for that still, small voice. You will be better equipped to be able to say:
Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
(Isaiah 6:8 (NIV))
Are you ready to say, “Here am I. Send me!”
