Lost Crusader #219 The Ever Ready God

“And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer, and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.”  ~Isaiah 65:24

 

The prophet is speaking of a time when Christ returns to physically reign upon the earth in the midst of His people. Our perception of Him then may be clearer, but the readiness of the Lord to hear our voice and respond to us shall not be increased by His presence.


We often think of God on a grand scale. It is true He is a big God and does things so big our minds cannot comprehend them. His design and creation of the universe is a marvel beyond words. However, for the Christian, God’s greatest miracle is very small. It is no bigger than you or I.


The world was fashioned so that we might have fellowship with God. We were created to this end; and every situation we ever encounter is designed to bring us into His presence. He is the Creator of heaven and earth, the omnipotent, omniscient, God who commands the universe. It is in His power to command us and force obedience. Yet, in love, He calls us.


He seeks us, draws us, and receives us by grace. Our life and our path are in His hands. Why should it seem strange, that before we even think to call, He has already heard? He knows just where we are—He placed us there. We need not wonder that the answer He gives is not to alleviate trouble, steer around trials, or spare us sorrow. Those too are part of His design. God does not delight in our pain. He walks with us through it so that we might have joy in our victory over the world.


We will have victory over all things. That is God’s will for us. When He has given us that victory; when we will have triumphed over earthly things; we shall be ready to sit together with Him in heavenly places. In this, He truly is both the Author and the Finisher of our faith.
