No Busy Signal

“Thus saith the Lord the maker thereof, the Lord that formed it, to establish it; the Lord is his name; Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.” Jeremiah 33:2-3 King James Version

Yesterday I tried to call a friend of mine who lives in Canada and received a recording saying “All circuits are busy now.” This happened several times in a row. Jesus is saying to us “Call unto me, and I will answer thee.” There are no busy signals when we call Him and we are never put on hold. He is always available to us twenty four hours a day. The question we need to ask ourselves is “Are we available to Him twenty four hours a day?”

Many times we make plans without asking Him if they are what He wants us to do. He said that He will show us great and mighty things that we don’t know about. I think many times we fail in what we try to do because we have not sought His will for our lives. Unless we pray constantly for and about the ministry that He has entrusted to us, we will fall short of what He wants us to do. This is also true in our personal lives and with our jobs.

Does Jesus get a busy signal when He calls you? Do you put Him on hold? Do you let the answering machine take His call? What a sad commentary it is on those of us who claim to be Christians that we don’t answer Him immediately when He calls us. We hurt Him and break His heart many times because we don’t respond when He calls us. May God forgive us and have mercy on us. The next time Jesus calls you, answer right away and be obedient to what He tells you to do.
