    Your servant struck both the lion and the bear: and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be as one of them, seeing he has defied the armies of the living God. David said, 'Yahweh who delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear, he will deliver me out of the hand of this Ph...

Call Waiting

  • Walking by the sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers: Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew, his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen. He said to them, 'Come after me, and I will make you fishers for men.' They immediately left their nets and followed him. Matthew 4:18 WEB

    As Jesus walked along the sea shore, He saw Peter and Andrew. He told them to follow Him and that He would make them 'fishers of men.' As they walked with Him, they became experienced and He taught them so that they could teach others. It was a long time before they were ready, but the day finally came and in chapter ten, Jesus sent them out on their first teaching mission:

    'Jesus sent these twelve out, and charged them, saying, 'Don't go among the Gentiles, and don't enter into any city of the Samaritans. Rather, go to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. As you go, preach, saying, 'The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!' Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, and cast out demons. Freely you received, so freely give' (Matthew 10:5-8).

    There is an amount of time between Jesus calling you, and Jesus sending you. How long is unknown to us and it varies person to person. This span of time varies throughout the Bible. David was king at thirty, while Moses started his ministry at eighty.

    When I was around twenty years old, the Lord told me that I would be a prophetic teacher and to prepare myself for ministry. I was so excited and went through Bible college, got ordained, then I waited. I was forty-five years old when the Lord finally sent me into full time ministry, and I no longer even wanted it. Where I had once felt like I knew a lot, now I feel like I know nothing. As Paul wrote: 'Knowledge puffs up, but love builds up. But if anyone thinks that he knows anything, he doesn't yet know as he ought to know' (1 Corinthians 8:1'2 WEB). I can testify that this is true.

    Has God called you for something, but it has yet to come to pass? Do not give up hope yet for this is perfectly normal. God is faithful, but there is a training time between the calling and the sending.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You for not forgetting about me. I know that Your eyes are on the sparrow and that You will also take care of me. I want all that You have for me on this earth. Please walk with me, talk with me, speak to me and through me, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.
