ANSWER THAT CALL, IF GOD IS CALLING
“Therefore I will number you for the sword, and you shall all bow down to the slaughter; because, when I called, you did not answer; when I spoke, you did not hear, but did evil before My eyes, and chose that in which I do not delight.” Isaiah 65:12 NKJV
Dr. Kenneth Hagin was invited to pray for a certain sick man. As he laid his hand on the head of the sick man to pray, with his own eyes closed, he felt that someone removed his hand from the man’s head! He put his hand again, but this time slightly, because he thought he had pressed hard on the man’s head. Yet, he felt someone took his hand off the man’s head the second time. At the third time, he put his hand back on his head, and opened his eyes to see who was removing his hand from the man’s head; then God spoke: “do not pray for him, he will not recover from that sickness! Because, I have called him for 34 years, to serve me, yet he refused”. The man died few hours after then!
“Don’t I have a right to choose whatever I want to do?” You might want to ask me. You are right, you have a right to choose whatever you want to do, but God’s choice for you is always the best, and the only proper choice for you. What is made does not tell its Maker what it wants to do; the Maker decides that.
“Therefore thus says the Lord God: behold, My servants shall eat, but you shall be hungry; behold, My servants shall drink, but you shall be thirsty; behold, My servants shall rejoice, but you shall be ashamed; behold, My servants shall sing for joy of heart, but you shall cry for sorrow of heart, and wail for grief of spirit.” Isaiah 65:13-14 NKJV. No one that rejects God’s offer has a good future! If you are not born-again, delay no further! If God is calling you to serve Him, stop procrastinating. Submit yourself to Him today. May God help you, in Jesus name!
