FAITH CAPSULE: Call on God from the depth of your heart.
One that knows to call on God will provoke God’s response at all times.
God wants all to be calling on Him and not calling on Him is the evidence of the lack of faith in God. Isaiah 65:24 testifies, “It shall come to pass that before they call, I will answer; and while they are still speaking, I will hear.”
Are you one that calls on God?
David’s word is for the wise to know the importance of calling on God.
2 Samuel 22:4, Psalm 18:3, testifies to David’s calling on God “I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised; so, shall I be saved from my enemies.”
Regardless of all that goes around the life of man, God will hear before one call on God.
Are you having doubt calling on God?
Learn from David as his word demonstrated that there is an answer in calling on the only gracious and merciful God that hears before we call. Just as the Lord promised to answer before they (we) call, He also stated that He will hear while they (we) are speaking.
In your calling on God are you positive or negative?
In the journey of the Israelites to God’s Promised land, their calling on God was negative, and God responded, “…I have heard the complaints which the children of Israel make against Me. Say to them, ‘As I live,’ says the LORD, ‘just as you have spoken in My hearing, so I will do to you” (Numbers 14:27-28). Often, man forgets that God that gives ear does have an ear to hear. It is important to know that God answers call and He also pays attention to hear while we speak.
Are you allowing challenges to dictate or provoke negative calling on God?
Most times, the life of a man can be affected by the words of our mouth.
The Bible buttresses, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” (Proverbs 18:21) Often, the positive answer will respond to positive communications while negative answers will respond to negative communications.
One should believe that God that hears does not stop hearing at every calling seeks for Him.
Avoiding negative such as rebellious is the reason why the book of Ecclesiastes 5:6 states, “Do not let your mouth cause your flesh to sin, nor say before the messenger of God that it was an error…” As much as there is nowhere to hide from God, indeed, our spoken words cannot be hidden from God without Him hearing us.
Why not abstain from speaking negative words but speak positive words to His hearing?
Do you believe that God gives ear to the calling of all man always?
Begin to speak a positive word with expectation knowing that He hears and answers all.
Prayer for today: Ask God to give ears to the calling from the depth of your heart.
