Isaiah 50 begins with the words, “This is what the LORD says.” In verse two, He asks the question, “When I called, why was there no one to answer?”
Often we get so busy, that we don’t spend enough quality time with our spouse or family. This isn’t just physical in nature. A person can be there physically, but actually lost somewhere in outer space, emotionally and relationally.
God has noticed the same thing with those who call Him Father. He reaches out to share His love and compassion, but we just aren’t there. He calls and no one answers. We are not at ‘home.’
It’s no wonder that many in the church seem to have lost their way. Some only read the Bible when their pastor says, ‘turn with me in your Bible to . . . ,’ during the Sunday service. It causes God to be concerned when believers fail to respond to him.
There is great wisdom to be found in the Scriptures. King Solomon, the author of the book of Proverbs, was known as one of the wisest men on earth. Samuel, was just a young boy working and learning to minister in the temple, when God first spoke to him. He later became a great prophet of God.
Make yourself daily available to the Lord. Minimize the distractions around you, so that when He calls, you will be able to hear His voice. Make time in your busy schedule, to spend some quality time with God, each day. Learn to not only hear Him, but to listen to His voice. He will watch over you and keep you in the palm of His hand – provided for and protected.
