Verse 13-Here I Am
He was right there to answer his fatherís call!
How many times do have to call your childís name before they answer?
How many times do your children have to call you name before you answer?
Momma, Momma, Momma, Momma, Momma!
Wives to husbands-ĒAre you listening to me?Ē
Now are you listening for Godís call?
We cry out to Him and we want and expect Him to hear.
But what about us are we listening to Him?
What does He want, what does He desire?
Verse 15-Wandering in the field
He didnít just go to the place and say, ďWell, they are not here!Ē
He was looking for them!
When you want an answer from God sometimes you got wander around, you got to knock on some doors.
I was taught-You canít find a job, if you donít put out applications, knock on doors.... You got to do your part and God will do His!
Sometimes your not going to find the answer to your questions the first time you open up your bible, it may take a in depth look into Godís word!
You may not find out what God has called you to do until you try some different things.
Verse 17-All the way to Dothan
He goes farther than he was asked to. Why? Because he knew that was his fathers will!
He could have said, ďI did what my father asked!ĒďThey donít even like me!ĒďShecham was 50 miles and now another 24 miles.Ē
A guy said to me, ďThere is to many twoís in church!Ē and I asked what he meant, ďIím to tired to serve God, Iím to old to serve God, Iím to busy to serve God, Iím to poor to give a tithe!Ē
Joseph could have come up with all kinds of excuses but he didnít!
What your excuse for not doing what God wants you to do?
Most people donít do more than is expected of them, most people donít even do what is expected of them!
They donít do in there life, they donít do it at there job, they donít do it in their marriage, and they sure donít do it when it comes to serving God!!
Now the question is are you one of these people?
Or do you go above and beyond the call of duty?
Leroy Smith says, ďWe donít start giving until we go beyond the 10 percent, because 10 percent is what we are required to give.Ē
Are you giving to what He desires, or are you giving the bare minimal.
Iím not just taking about whatís in your pocketbook, but also whatís in you heart!!!
