This past two days I have been sharing with you about the witchdoctor that experienced something about the power of God, but is too afraid to accept Jesus.
God is calling his name, but the fear of this unknown God prevents him to answer the call.
I know however that my God will keep on knocking on the door of this man heart and will keep on calling his name!
This made me think of somebody in the Bible who also heard God calling but did not yet know Him personally:
1 Samuel 3:7(MSG)
6-7 God called again, "Samuel, Samuel!"
Samuel got up and went to Eli, "I heard you call. Here I am."
Again Eli said, "Son, I didn't call you. Go back to bed." (This all happened before Samuel knew God for himself. It was before the revelation of God had been given to him personally.)
God kept on calling until Samuel realized that it was God. From the time that Samuel answered that call, he got to know God personally.
God is constantly calling all the people who do not know Him yet. It is like someone constantly knocking at a door, even though no one opens the door. God will keep on knocking until you open the door of your heart to Him.
One time I asked God if He ever stops knocking at someone’s door if they keep on ignoring Him. His answer was yes…
His knocking is every heartbeat of a person’s heart. The day that heart stops beating, the knocking will stop!
Have you opened your hearts door to God’s knocking? He longs to reveal Himself personally to you!
