We are chosen. We belong to God. He waits, and He calls. We ignore Him, but He waits and He calls.
We run as far as we can from Him. We attempt to hide from a God who sees all. We attempt to shut out the Father who knew us before we were even born. But since we are chosen, since we belong to Him, He waits and He calls.
“You can be sure of this: The LORD set apart the godly for himself. The LORD will answer when I call to him.” (Psalm 4:3)
Have you had a wake-up call? What did it look like for you?
