God is Here, Where Are You?

God is ready and waiting for His children to call upon Him for help. Isaiah 65:1 states; “I was sought by those who did not ask for Me; I was found by those who did not seek Me.  I said here I am, here I am, to a nation that was not called by My name.”  This verse was a future reference to the Gentile nation coming to know God through salvation that is offered in Jesus Christ.  The word Gentile is the reference used in the Bible speaking about everyone who does not belong to the nation Israel. 

 

This verse depicts a picture of God stretching out His hands to His people saying “I am here ready to help you, all you have to do is call out to Me.”  Is the church today becoming more like the nation Israel?  As the church, are we trying to do ministry with our own power and strength instead of calling out to God for help?  When we ask God for help we are asking Him to change us.
