“Come now therefore” is not a message to a novice or an ignorant fellow. God has nothing to say or give to a Lazy person.
It is significant that God calls people who are busy: Gideon was threshing grain when he was called (Judges 6), Samuel was serving in the tabernacle (1 Samuel 3), David was caring for sheep (1 Samuel 17:20), Elisha was plowing with twelve yoke of oxen when Elijah cast his mantle upon him (1 Kings 19:19-21), four of the apostles Peter, Andrew, James and John (Mark 1: 16-20) were managing their fishing business and Mathew was collecting taxes when the Lord called him (Mathew 9:9).
Are you at your duty post? Can you hear God saying to you come now therefore. Does this suggest to you that a new and bigger assignment is coming your way? God does not call lazy people, because all the people He calls are busy. If you are living right and doing well you will be called to a higher office. God who has the whole world in His hand says I have surely seen the afflictions of my people which are in Egypt (bondage), I have heard their cry by reason of their task masters I know their sorrows, I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, I will send you to Pharaoh. What an agenda! What a duty, what a fear and what a God behind your call to duty!
On this same assignment, Moses had failed before. How could God use a failure? But God said, I am now ready to deliver them out of Egypt and lead them into the Promised Land, and you Moses are the chosen leader. You may have failed before in life, carrier, business, God given assignment and you are despondent and a feeling of inadequacy has filled your heart. I hear God saying, to you come now therefore and take your new possession. Jonah must preach at Nineveh that was a field no one else was assigned to graze at that time and for that purpose.
Nebuchadnezzar after 7 years in the bush said and my reasoning returned unto me and I was established in my kingdom, and the excellent majesty was added unto me”. No one else was born to achieve your purpose in God’s vineyard and life.
