10 May It’s God’s Call
When Christian Herter was governor of Massachusetts, he went at a church barbecue, moved down the serving line, held out his plate to the woman serving chicken who gave him just one piece of the dish.
“Excuse me,” Governor Herter said, “do you mind if I have another piece of chicken?”
“Sorry,” the woman told him. “I’m supposed to give one piece of chicken to each person.”
“But I’m starved,” the governor said.
“Sorry,” the woman said again. “Only one to a customer.”
Governor Herter was a modest and unassuming man, but he decided that this time he would throw a little weight around. “Do you know who I am?” he said. “I am the governor of this state.”
“Do you know who I am?” the woman said. “I’m the lady in charge of the chicken and it’s my call”
This bewildering call of God comes into our lives as well. The call of God can never be understood absolutely or explained externally; it is a call that can only be perceived and understood internally by our true inner-nature. The call of God is like the call of the sea— no one hears it except the person who has the nature of the sea in him.
Sarah gave birth at the age of 90 years old, in the mind of men this is impossible, but it happened, why? because its God’s call.
The man at the pool of Bethesda had been in a crippled state for 38 long years, but one day he took up his bed and began to walk. WHY? because God made the call.
Since God said it, it is so.
I remember when my mother would say “because I said so.” There’s no rebuking it. That’s all the reason that you need to know. When God calls it and said so that’s all the reason that you need.
Proverbs 16 says that “We may make our plans, but God has the last word.”
But, when God says it is well, all thing will work out. Isaiah 40:8 says it best: “The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God stands forever.”
Perhaps you were physically sick and the doctors gave you the grim news. But then, you had a “BUT GOD” miracle that left the doctors wondering what happened. It was God’s call.
People will say what they want, but eventually God will make the call.
It’s alright if people give you advice, But God’s call has the final word!
It’s OK to make plans, but just realize that ultimately God will make the call final.
God is in control. Final doesn’t mean final unless God calls it so.
Make your motions and cast your votes, but God eventually will make the call.
Why is Barack Obama the President and not John McCain or Mitt Romney? God made the call.
And if Hillary Clinton is the next chief executive, like it or not, Accept it as God made the call.
You didn’t marry the girl or the boy of your dreams, why? Its God’s call
You didn’t achieve your dream career? Again God made the call.
It’s not the doctors or the earthly judge, nor the counselor, not act of congress, not even the president;s call. It’s God’s call
It would have been nice for my mother in law to have lived longer to see two grandchildren and a niece graduate from High School and sing “Beaulah Land” one last time in the Bible conference. But God made the call.
Why does He have the final say? Because:
He is the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the Ending. Rev 1:8.
He is the author and finisher of our faith. Heb12:2.
He controls our destiny and He formed us. Jer1:5.
He owns the earth and everything that is there in. Ps24:1.7
Even in death, God makes the final call. Look at Lazarus and the little girl.
Jehovah the Almighty has the final say over your ministry, business, profession, home, life and He even decides when you will leave this world and go yonder. He decides your final abode as well.
Used to be when referees and umpires make the call, its final. Today with the advent of modern technology such as instant replay, those calls can be overturned. Not for the Lord. No technology out there will over turn His call.
So don’t freak out today. Yes we should vote. Yes we should pray for Godly leaders. Yes we should support life. We shouldn’t be overwhelmed with worry or fear. For in the end of the day, its God’s call.
God bless . . .
