Many years ago when I worked in the oil industry, I would order goods and services ahead of time and put them on, “will call.” “Will call,” said to the service provider, that I would soon need a delivery of goods and services, and they should be ready for me whenever I called. The Lord, having anticipated our need, has placed Himself on “will call,” waiting for you to call! Those days remind me of the Psalmist who says of the Lord, “I will call,” whichmeans when he called upon God, the Lord having anticipated his need beforehand, had everything ready and bundled up for delivery. The Lord’s Word to us is, “Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know” (Jeremiah 33:3)

Let us now also consider the Word of the Lord through the Psalmist who says, “I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised; so shall I be saved from my enemies. When the waves of death surrounded me, the floods of ungodliness made me afraid. The sorrows of Sheol surrounded me; the snares of death confronted me. In my distress I called upon the Lord, and cried out to my God; He heard my voice from His temple, and my cry entered His ears” (2 Samuel 22:4–7). The Psalmist called, and God answered! Again, he says, “I will love You, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised; so shall I be saved from my enemies” (Psalm 18:1–3)“Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him, and show him My salvation” (Psalm 91:14–16). The Psalmist confirms the words of Jeremiah and inserts the key factor of love as the Lord waits to answer!

“As for me, I will call upon God, and the Lord shall save me […] I will pray, and cry aloud, and He shall hear my voice (Psalm 55:16–17).
