Week 2; Day 4 – Calls

Jerusalem, Jerusalem you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I would long to gather your children together as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings and you were not willing.

Luke 13:34

Matilda has two very distinct calls: one is for food as she calls the chicks over when she has found some. The second is for danger. Danger, quick, come, hide, into the nest box or under me. Quick.

Like the wee chicks we are often unaware of the dangers around us. But we have to have that immediate response, that immediate run to our safe place in Jesus.

No point having a look around and see if we can handle the problem/danger ourselves. We need to have that immediate response in-built in us to turn to the Lord, to call out to Him, to run to Him.

We need to be willing in our vulnerability to find our refuge & shelter in Him.

Lord, may we always be quick to come, quick to respond to Your voice calling us. Amen.
