Adonai: The Master of Your Calling

Coffee drive-throughs. Text messaging. Netflix and iTunes. We live in a world of instant gratification. Whatever we need, it’s often available immediately. But when systems break down—when the power goes out or the Wi-Fi quits working or the coffee kiosk is closed—what then?

Quick service may be uncertain, but one thing remains consistent. Whenever we need God, He is there. He is Adonai, your Lord, the master over all. Even when we feel like we can’t see Him or hear Him, even when our prayers seem to be going unanswered, He remains the great and mighty God. And He hears us. Always. Instantly.

That’s why it’s so important to take the time to plug in to His power—to align our thoughts, actions, heart, decisions, and desires with what He wants for our lives. When we do this, we’re able to fulfill the destiny He has prepared for us. And then we’re able to go out into the world and share our knowledge of Adonai with others. Any moment we’re in need of God, He is there. We don’t have to wait in line or attempt to get a better connection or pretend we’re perfect in order to come to Him. He meets us where we’re at, giving us exactly what we need, when we need it, so we can impact our world for Him.

Consider the interaction between God and Moses. Already conflicted about his lack of ability speaking, Moses asks the Lord, “Who am I, that I should go to Pharaoh, and that I should bring the sons of Israel out of Egypt?” (Exodus 3:11) He feels completely unqualified for the task of being a leader of so many people. Many of you might relate. The Lord frequently calls us into activity of one sort or the other where we are completely inadequate for the job.

But the Lord says to Moses, “Assuredly I will be with you.” This Lord, this Adonai, who is great and mighty and hears us in all circumstances is with us. I know; you don’t see Him and most times, don’t feel Him in an obvious way. But He is there, leading you through anything that He has called you to do. That’s what this Adonai is all about. He proceeds in telling Moses all of the miraculous deliverance He is about to impart on their behalf. That same God offers to you everything you need to fulfill whatever He has called you to do.

So, start asking and praying to the Lord about your calling. What is it He would like you to put your hand to? Are you willing to step out in faith and try living out your divine calling? Make no mistake; the Master of All—your Lord—will be right beside you when you do.
