Exodus 3:4 ” When the Lord saw that he had gone over to look, God called to him from within the bush, ‘Moses, Moses!’ And Moses said, ‘Here I am.’ “

“Here am I.”  It’s a well used statement made by many great people of the Bible when called by God.  In Genesis 31:11 when God summoned Jacob, he answered, “Here am I.” and so did Abraham in Genesis 22:1.    In I Samuel 3:4 the young Samuel answered God’s voice with, “Here am I.”  And when Isaiah was being commissioned, he also replied to God’s call with, “Here am I.”   There’s so much meaning within those three little words.  It says, “It doesn’t matter what You have for me to do, great or menial, I’m happy to serve You Lord.”  It also says, ” I desire to do Your Will Lord, not what I want.”  Three little words of submission that force us to set aside ourselves, pick up our Cross, and follow Him.

What does it take for the Lord to get your attention?  Will the still small voice of the Holy Spirit be enough…or do you need something more dramatic and sensational (like a burning bush) for you to even take notice?  Awareness of the Lord takes discipline…to be able to quicken our ears to His voice.  But also know when the Lord calls, He’s very specific…He will call you by name, not by random.
