Read: Exodus 3:4 - “When the LORD saw that he turned aside to look, God called to him from the midst of the bush and said, ‘Moses, Moses!’ And he said, ‘Here I am.’"


How many times have we heard it said here at Hope, "Success is not measured by our seating capacity; it is measured by our sending capacity"? The Bible is clear in the fact that "many are called, but few come." The Lord has a great plan, and that plan involves you! There is something that God has for all of us to be involved in service in the Kingdom. When Moses heard God calling him, his response was innocent yet perfect: "Here I am!" A prerequisite to obeying the Lord is HEARING the Lord. You cannot obey if you do not hear. Few people go because few people hear. People who have known others for several years have no trouble recognizing a person's voice if they have talked to them daily. But if you do not talk to a person frequently, it is sometimes difficult to readily recognize even a voice that at one point was very familiar.

Do you know the voice of God as He speaks to you in His Word? The voice probably will not be audible, but it will be unmistakable. And when He speaks, our only response is obedience! As we have navigated through AWAKEN, how has God been speaking to you? Is your “yes” on the table?

Prayer for the day:

Lord, I surrender my life to You so that You can use me however You desire. Speak to me, and I will do my very best to listen and obey.
