“Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, ‘Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?’ And I said, ‘Here am I. Send me!’”
“The willing feet that go on errands of love, work for Christ.”
Throughout Scripture we have accounts of men and women who were given special tasks, who received a special call on their lives from God. Abraham was called to leave his home country to become the father of God’s people. Samson was called to be a Nazarite—a young man who would never touch fermented wine or have his hair cut—in order to show his commitment to God. James and John were two fishermen whom Jesus called to be His disciples. Paul was blinded and knocked off his horse when Jesus called him to be an ambassador of love. The list goes on and on.
God still calls people today. He asks young persons to prepare for a life of dedicated ministry—and some middle-aged and older persons to leave a career and serve Him in ministry. There are countless other tasks and calls that God gives that are not universal to all the world or everyone who is a believer, but to a specific believer. Maybe even you.
When Isaiah worshiped in the temple and felt God’s call on his life, his answer was simple: “Here I am. Send me!” (Isaiah 6:8) What will your answer be?
Prayer: Lord, I want to go where You lead. Thank You for the tasks You have placed before me. Amen.
