May 28, Today’s thought – Whosoever

April 25 roses, poppies 005Poppy, transplanted from Grandma Crain’s in March,
bloomed this spring.

Good Morning

Joel 2:32

And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.

Why do not I call on His name?
Why do I run to this neighbor and that when God is so near and will hear my faintest call?
Why d I sit down and devise schemes and invent plans?
Why not at once roll myself and my burden upon the Lord?

Straightforward is the best runner–why do not I run at once to the living Gd?
In vain shall I look for deliverance any where else;
but with God I shall find it;
for here I have His royal shall to make it sure.

I need not ask whether I may call on Him or not,
for that word “Whosoever” is a very wide and comprehensive one.
Whosoever means me,
for it means anybody and everybody who calls upon God.
I will therefore follow the leading of the text,
and at once call upon the glorious Lord who has made so large a promise.

My case is urgent, and I do not see how I am to be delivered,
but this is no business of mine.
He who makes the promise will find ways and means of keeping it.
It is mine to obey His commands;
it is not mine to direct His counsels.
I am His servant, not His solicitor.
I call upon Him and He will deliver. ~~C.H. Spurgeon

Calling on Him . . . Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
