The Law of Connection Part 10

Call Pushes Communication-Isaiah 7:1-17

Isaiah wants to communicate a message that begins to burn inside of him (as it did with Jeremiah). The divine message gives him an urgency to connect with others and spread God's word. God's call gives him a divine compulsion to speak and act.

A leader's sense of call provides divine energy. Ponder a few other examples of this phenomenon:

  1. Abraham was called by God through a divine visitation (Gen. 12).
  2. Joseph was called by God through a dream (Gen. 37).
  3. Moses was called by God through a voice in a burning bush (Ex. 3; 4).
  4. Aaron was called by God through his brother Moses (Ex. 4).
  5. Joshua was called by God through Moses (Ex. 17).
  6. Gideon was called by God through an angel (Judg. 6).
  7. Samuel was called by God through God's audible voice (1 Sam. 3).
  8. David was called by God through the prophet Samuel (1 Sam. 16).
  9. Paul was called by God through a vision while he traveled (Acts 9).
  10. Timothy was called by God by Paul's preaching and through his upbringing (1 Tim. 1; 2 Tim. 1; 2).
