Answer the Call
The satisfaction of Christian hope for God’s provision in our lives is a present reality. The most important provision we can daily experience is God’s gracious provision of faith as we read and meditate on His Word. The psalmist declares, “Oh, how I love your instructions! I think about them all day long.” In addition to bringing healing to the flesh and strength to your bones (Prov 3:8), it supplies a revelation of truth to your heart and mind. The Holy Spirit makes the Word come alive and substantive to your emotions and your intellect. He provides the evidence to persuade you of its truth, and where it is applicable to your life and where you are in that moment and in your current circumstance. This is not a hope for future glory. The object of this hope can be obtained daily, continually, as we meditate on God’s Word. It is real. It is substantive. It is life changing if we follow the revelation. It is ours, right now, to take a hold of. God is calling. Pick up the phone. Answer the call.
