Every conversation, interaction or relationship begins with a decision by one person to call or reach out to someone else.
Parents call children. Children call parents. Workers call bosses. Wives call husbands. Telemarketers call prospects. Brothers call sisters. Friends call friends.
Ringing telephones, impromptu visits, commercials, hungry children, meetings, and other attention grabbers all compete for our attention and limited available time. Our names are called multiple times throughout the day.
The most important call in history, was made by a voice that surpasses all others.
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters. Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light day, and the darkness He called night. And there was evening and there was morning, one day.” Genesis 1:1-5
By the power of God’s speaking, He, “called the light day.” By His Word, He brought forth light and gave it its name. God is The Supreme Caller.
No other call made by anyone who ever lived or will live, can supersede that of The One who spoke all of creation into existence. Not your spouse’s, the president’s or your favorite entertainer’s.
It is only because God decided to create time, the heavens, earth, light, dark, morning and night, that we can plan how we will spend a Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday or Saturday.
What are we penciling in on our calendar days? Chores, work, vacations, classes, dates, shopping, movies? How often do we ask: If God created this day and placed me in it, is there something specific He wants me to do with it?
God still speaks. God still calls. He calls each of us to be in a relationship with Him, and to be the woman He created, called forth and named us to be.
Will you answer His call?
