I recently heard this quote, “The call of God is great, but the God of the call is Greater!” I wrote it down on a piece of paper on my desk, I tweeted it, and now I am writing about it! I can not seem to get away from the truth of this very profound quote.
The call of God is such a powerful call! It is not just reserved for those that occupy the office of a Pastoral Staff of a church, a missionary serving the distant shores of Africa or China, nor it reserved for just the men and women of one of the 66 books of the Bible. The call of God is reserved for you and me, and everyone that will listen for the powerful, yet sometimes still small voice. If you are listening, you will hear the call.
However, the call as powerful as it is, cannot compare to the one that is doing the calling. Our Father in Heaven, He is so much GREATER!
Let me share with you some facts of our Father in Heaven…
He created the world! – Genesis 1:1
He loves all of us in the world! – John 3:16
He sacrifices for us all! – Mark 10:45
He is passionate to see live changed and souls saved! – 1 Tim. 2:4
He will never leave us or forget us! – Joshua 1:9
He Loves You! – Isaiah 43:4
Now as you think of the call that God has placed on your life: teacher, parent, entrepreneur, military, doctor or lawyer, pastor or missionary, athlete, (the list goes on and on); no matter how great the call that God has given you. The God of that Call is still greater!
Remember this today as you live out your calling in whatever corner of the world you may be in…
“Greater is He in you, than he that it in the world!” 1 John 4:4
