Knowing Your Call

Isaiah 41:1-7

1 Keep silence before me, O islands; and let the people renew their strength: let them come near; then let them speak: let us come near together to judgment.

2 Who raised up the righteous man from the east, called him to his foot, gave the nations before him, and made him rule over kings? he gave them as the dust to his sword, and as driven stubble to his bow.

3 He pursued them, and passed safely; even by the way that he had not gone with his feet.

4 Who hath wrought and done it, calling the generations from the beginning? I the LORD, the first, and with the last; I am he.

5 The isles saw it, and feared; the ends of the earth were afraid, drew near, and came.

6 They helped every one his neighbour; and every one said to his brother, Be of good courage.

7 So the carpenter encouraged the goldsmith, and he that smootheth with the hammer him that smote the anvil, saying, It is ready for the sodering: and he fastened it with nails, that it should not be moved.

I have entitled this today: “Knowing Your Call”

In our opening Scripture, God is speaking through Isaiah.

The idea of this passage is that before God man has no argument.

In Isaiah 41:2 when it says: Who raised up the righteous man from the east, called him to his foot, gave the nations before him, and made him rule over kings?

It would seem, that according to verse eight, the righteous man was Abraham, whom God called His friend.

He was called from the East in Righteousness to Jehovah’s foot, for God said to him, According to Genesis 17:1 “walk before me and be thou perfect”.

God made him ruler over kings for they became dust to his sword and as stubble to his bow.

Isaiah 41:3says: He pursued them, and passed safely; even by the way that he had not gone with his feet.

Abraham was willing to pursue Lot when he was taken captive by the 4 kings.

God intervened in the life of Abraham because Abraham was considered a friend of God.

Abraham, by no means, was perfect but he was willing to strive to do whatever it was that the Lord wanted him to do.

Isaiah 41:1:4

4 Who hath wrought and done it, calling the generations from the beginning? I the LORD, the first, and with the last; I am he.

The generation’s chosen from the beginning were the children of Abraham; for they were in their fathers loins when God chose them.

Jer 1:5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.

Before you were in your mother’s womb God knew you, before you came out of the womb God has sanctified you and ordained you to do work for you.

God has a will for your life and He has a call for you this morning.

Ro 11:29 For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.

We have to learn to ‘press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus”.

We have to learn to press, push and not give up when situations arise in our lives that we do not understand.

God has given you something this morning. Hold onto it and don’t let go at any price.
