God Hears Your Faintest Call

God Hears Your Faintest Call

And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered (Joel 2:32, KJV).

Why do I not call on His name? Why do I run to my neighbour, when God is so near and will hear my faintest call?

Why do I sit down and devise schemes and invent plans instead of taking myself and my burden to the Lord? Wouldn’t it be better to go straight to the living God? I will not find deliverance anywhere else; but with God I shall find it; for he is certain to help me.

I need not ask whether I may call on Him or not, for that word “whosoever” is a very wide and comprehensive one. ‘Whosoever’ means me, for it means anybody and everybody who calls upon God. I will therefore follow the leading of the text and at once call upon the glorious Lord who had made so large a promise.

My case is urgent, and I do not see how I am to be delivered; but this is no problem. God, who makes this promise, will find out ways and means of keeping it. I must simply obey His commands; I cannot tell God what to do. I am His servant, not His lawyer. I call upon Him, and He will deliver me. – Charles Spurgeon

Eli’s Reflection: From what do you need deliverance right now? Be honest. Call on the name of the Lord for deliverance, claim the promise of Joel 2:32. Make a note in your prayer journal or diary. Tomorrow, make a note about how God delivered you, and don’t forget to thank him!

Running for Safety

God doesn’t promise us this life will be without its challenges, hardships, hurdles, hurts, dangers, etc. We are living in a lost, hard, broken, and fallen world because of the sins of humankind. But in the Lord Jesus Christ no matter what we face on this earth, we can find everlasting life.

Come Back to Jesus!

How about you, friend? May I ask you this? Have you turned from your sins and received Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Is your life truly devoted to Him? Do you bear the fruit of a life lived for Christ? And, if so, are you taking the love, time, and care daily to tell the world about Him? Are you sold out to Jesus? And to telling people the only way to everlasting life is through Christ?

Help Me to Love

Why do I pray this? Why am I sharing this with you? To love is not always so very easy. Sometimes it is so very hard. Sometimes it seems impossible. At times I have been so very mad at God because of my life’s challenges at the time, or because I didn’t get something I prayed for, that I had everything but love in my heart. I had everything but praise in my mind and my mouth. I missed love in my actions. Oh, how wrong I was to be mad at God! I needed to purify myself and love the Lord instead. With all my heart. As He commands us.

Please Don’t Forget!

About forgetting. About remembering. Why would the Lord tell us not to forget His works? Why would He tell us to remember them? That’s what He does in the verses above, right? And that’s not all! He through the psalmist shows us the Israelites after all the amazingly wonderful things the Lord had done for them forgot. Not just what He had done. They forgot Him. They reaped the rewards of God’s astoundingly awesome goodness and then neglected to glorify Him as Lord and continue to acknowledge His goodness.
