If you’re not familiar with someone, it can be hard to recognize them when they come close. Think of soccer players, cricket players, or Formula 1 drivers. They are wildly popular and well-known in parts of the world, but when they come to America, with a few exceptions, they can walk down the street without being mobbed. In America, no one knows who they are. In the same way, if we don’t know God or how He is speaking to us, we can easily miss his call.
