"For whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. How then shall they call upon him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear of him, if there be no one to preach? And how shall there be preachers, if they are not sent? (Romans 10:13-15) God is concerned that His people may understand and know Him.
We must realize that God has done something in our lives. To this day, He continues to call. "My sheep hear my voice; I know them, and they follow me. (John 10:27) If He has called you by name, it is because He knows you. He had to arrange things for you. There are never chances because "The Lord has made everything for a purpose, Even the wicked for the day of trouble." (Proverbs 16:4)
"Simon told how God first looked upon the Gentiles to choose from among them a people to bear his name. (Acts 15:14) He looked away from His chosen people to the nations. This is the Grace of God. When it becomes repetitive and habitual, it becomes a danger to you. But when you realize what God has done for you, then you are grateful.
Noah knew that the future would not be better because he knew what God had planned to do. But the world did not pay attention and they continued in their wickedness. "But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord." (Genesis 6:8) We, too, have found favor in God's eyes in this time. May we bear the reproach of Christ!
In this Age of Laodicea, our God is not much loved because He is at the door and He knocks. "If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with me. (Revelation 3:20) God help us to be aware of our commitment. We are not here to play. We come to the House of Correction to teach us, to rebuke us, to lead us in the way of truth.
God shapes us in his way to teach us. Since the creation, God already had his program and he placed everything. Everything is under God's control, there can be no chance. He is the Most High, the Almighty, nothing can escape Him. "I consider that the sufferings of this present time cannot be compared with the glory to come that will be revealed for us." (Romans 8: 18) There is nothing that can detach you from this God.
"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. (Hebrews 13:8) So we are at peace, we who believe in Him. He cannot change. What He has done in the past, He is still doing today, so we are sure to get what He has promised us. He is the rewarder of faith. With Him everything becomes possible.
We must be sure that God is leading us. We can think we are on the right path and in fact be far from God! That's why we need to be sure that we are on the right path for God. "Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts" (Hebrews 3:15)
We have testimonies throughout the Bible that prove the truth of what God has said. Doubt cannot even enter our minds. It is in our age that God will complete what He has begun. We are called to play a very important role. God has already prepared us for this so that we will have an unshakeable faith.
He is our guide, our comforter, our counselor. May we give ourselves more to Him. "I have taken your word into my heart, that I may not sin against you. (Psalm 119:11) God is Good in all that He does, He is wisdom. He is also a support and a help in times of trouble.

"For He says, and it happens; He commands, and it exists." (Psalm 33:9) When God says, He does. God always watches over His Word and He has His eyes fixed on those who are His. "For you will not deliver my soul to Sheol" (Psalm 16:10) God cannot abandon us. We are grateful to this Savior. It strengthens and encourages us. The Master Himself referred to this passage because this verse has a deep weight for each of us.

(Isaiah 53:10) What our Lord has done is so great that our thoughts cannot grasp it. Man had to fall, but God would not leave him in that state. God has always manifested His perfect Will, the goal He sought to achieve for man.

"And with all the deceits of unrighteousness for those who perish because they did not receive the love of the truth to be saved." (2 Thessalonians 2:10) We beg God that in our hearts we may love to hear the truth. "For the time will come when men will not endure sound doctrine, but itching to hear pleasant things, will give themselves many teachers according to their own desires, and will turn away their ears from the truth, and will turn to fables." (2 Timothy 4:3-4) Before the Lord comes to get His own, the scriptures must be fulfilled.

God knows the hearts of men and the desire of each one. The Ethiopian eunuch was there in that place, but God saw him. He sent Philip to explain and speak to him. God sees and hears. "I have seen the suffering of my people who are in Egypt, and I have heard the cry of their oppressors, for I know their sorrows." (Exodus 3:7) Sometimes we think that God is insensitive to our situation.

"As a deer pants for streams of water, so my soul longs after you, O God!" (Psalm 42:1) Let this be deep within us! The Lord our God has truly loved us. "For we love him, because he first loved us" (1 John 4:19). We want to love Him with all our heart, with all our soul.

The world is covered in darkness but the light is rising on you. There must be a difference. You must be different. The light cannot also be darkness. "May you be cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of my mouth." (Revelation 3:15-16) You can't be two-faced. You lie to yourself, you have to be sincere.

God speaks to us so that we may be instructed so that we do not pass through judgment. It is a house of correction. "Listen, Israel! The Lord our God is the only Lord. You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength." (Deuteronomy 6:4-5) Because they turned away from God, they went into exile. God wants His Word to be heeded. When we love the Lord, we have respect and consideration for His Word.

We are His flock. We are led, protected and fed by Him. "The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside still waters." (Psalm 23:1-2) "Therefore we thank God continually that when you received the word of God, which we made known to you, you received it not as the word of men but, as it truly is, as the word of God, which works in you who believe." (1 Thessalonians 2:13) So we are partakers of what God is doing in our midst.

On that day, when we stand before Him, we will be happy. That day will come. We must not leave this world without leaving a testimony. Just as Abraham, Peter, Paul were spoken of, you must also be spoken of. You are the history of Laodicea.

We want to be led by God, but we must also show Him that we want to be led. "For the LORD will go before you, and the God of Israel will shut your path." (Isaiah 52:12) We must move at God's pace, not as we want to. Our step must be firm.
