God called Adam “Where are you?”
It is interesting to note that it was God who called for Adam. It was God who came seeking for him.
Adam was hiding in shame. It was God who covered him.
God is calling us patiently. His call may be unexpected. But the question is is do we answer his call? And when we do, do we complain like Adam?
Calling out to God only when we need Him is not trust.
When God calls He will fulfill His promise and purpose. Just like he did with Abraham.
Sometimes like Samuel we may not know that it is God who is calling us. Like Saul on the way to Damascus we may ask “Who are you Lord?”
But when we realise it is God calling our reaction should be swift like blind Bartimaeus, who threw his cloak aside, which was possibly his only possession, jumped to his feet, indicating full joy and trust that Jesus would heal him, and came to the Lord.
In 2 Peter 1:3 we read that God has called us by his own glory and goodness. Glory expresses the excellence of His being – His attributes and essence. Goodness depicts excellence which is expressed in deeds – virtue in action.
Have you answered God’s call yet?
