There’s Nobody Home

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

Some people have answering machines that say, “I’m sorry, I’m not home right now,” when in truth, they’re sitting next to the machine listening and judging the callers, deciding whether or not to answer. The problem is that we do the same thing with God. God’s calling us and we don’t answer, pretending that we’re not home. What does ‘I have a calling’ mean? You can’t have a calling unless someone is calling you. If God is calling you, then you need to answer Him and step out. Repent; do whatever you must do to obey. Take the first step of your journey- He’s calling you.

You’ve heard His voice in your heart, in the tugging of your spirit. It’s His Spirit on your spirit. Don’t just sit there, letting it pass you by- answer the call of God and say, “I’m sorry, I’m home, I’m here, I do hear you, and the answer is yes. I repent.” The call of God is too important to let it pass you by and end up on a spiritual answering machine.

Today’s Mission – Listen today for His voice, His whispers, and His calling and answer it right away.

Answering God’s Call

A.W. Tozerby A.W. Tozer

And the Lord . . . called as at other times, Samuel, Samuel. Then Samuel answered, Speak, for thy servant heareth. 1 Samuel 3:10

When will men and women realize that when God calls us out He is completely faithful to call us into something better? In his faith, Abraham was against idolatry and idol-making, but that was not his crusade. Because of his faith, God led him into a promised land, into possessions and into the lineage that brought forth the Messiah. The call of God is always to something better—keep that in mind!

God calls us into the joys and reality of eternal life. He calls us into purity of life and spirit so that we may acceptably walk with Him. He calls us into a life of service and usefulness that brings glory to Himself as God. He calls us into the sweetest fellowship possible on this earth—the fellowship of the family of God. If God takes away from us the old, wrinkled, beat-up dollar bill we clutch so desperately, it is only because He wants to exchange it for the whole federal mint, the entire treasury.

He is saying, “I have in store for you all the resources of heaven. Help yourself!”
