“The sun shall be turned to darkness and the moon to blood, before the coming of the great and splendid day of the Lord, and it shall be that everyone shall be saved who calls on the name of the Lord.” (Acts 2:20-21).
This is a prophecy from the prophet Joel. We do not have to look for portents in the sky to understand what is the Lord saying to us. It’s so simple as calling on the name of the Lord. So sweet when someone calls you by name. Mind you, if your friend got angry, he will not call your name. In a way, calling on the name of the Lord is significant. When we call on the name of the Lord, when we beg for His help, we are acknowledging his sovereignty and power. In short, we need God!
God respects free will! This is the reason why He waits for you to open the door of your heart for him. He likes that you are willing to call him, to worship him and to love him. The moment you acknowledge God, slowly you’re life will turn around. Not necessarily a bed of roses, but a life more worthy to live. You begin to smile, to be positive, to be stronger in times of trouble. For you have called God to be your stronghold, you will never wander anymore for as David says in Psalm 23, “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.”
