Listen, O coastlands, to Me, And take heed you peoples from afar! The Lord has called Me from the womb; From the matrix of My mother He has made mention of My name. Isaiah 49:1 NKJV
Isaiah is making a bold statement. He is saying listen to me everyone. God called me by my name to serve Him before I was even born!
Isaiah believed God created him for a purpose. Isaiah knew he was not born by accident or random chance.
God never changes. He is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
God knew you before your birth. The Lord called you by name before He created you. You were not born by accident. Your DNA was not determined by random chance. God has a purpose and a plan for your life. Jesus is calling you to serve Him today!
How will you serve Jesus?
Will you serve the Lord in the quietness of your own heart? Will you serve Him by praying for your friends, family members and neighbors? Will you serve Jesus by living a quiet life of obedience to God?
Will you stand up amid a perverse and faithless generation and declare the truth of God to the lost, the lonely and the brokenhearted?
Years ago, my wife and I made a living as the SonShine Clowns. I was also a balloon artist. It was an amazing way to share the love of Jesus with children and families.
I still volunteer for balloon decorating at church. I also made balloons for children at special events. I am blessed when I can use my gifts to honor Jesus by serving people!
How does Jesus want you to serve Him? You can use any gift or talent the Lord gives you to serve Jesus!
God’s plan for your life includes expressing your love for Jesus. The Lord’s plan for your life includes leading other people to Jesus. Be a light to the next generation. Lead people to Jesus by living in obedience to Him today!
Isaiah heard the voice of the Lord saying: “Whom shall I send, And who will go for Us?” Isaiah responded by boldly saying, “Here am I Lord! Send me!”
Today Jesus is calling your name. How will you respond? Will you answer as Isaiah did?
