“Call to Me and I will answer you…”

Who can dispute the fact that we live in an age of information overload. We may not be getting any wiser as a society, yet, due to advancements in science, technology and social media, we are consuming knowledge in record amounts.

Despite that reality, what we do not know far outweighs what we do know. Not only is this the case from a human standpoint, but from a supernatural one as well -exponentially in fact. The untold mysteries beneath the oceans and beyond our galaxy pale in comparison to blessings and revelations God wants to pour out on His people, if only we would take the time to ask.

Jeremiah, one of the Old Testament Major Prophets, was encouraged by the Lord to do just that. At work when the Babylonians sacked Jerusalem and took the Jews into captivity (586 BC), he often offended political and religious leaders for passing along the words of truth and warning God had given to him. In fact, as further examination of our central text reveals, he was imprisoned when this word from the Lord came to him, “Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know” (Jeremiah 33:3).

Note that in this verse God issues a command to call.  Paving the way for that challenge is a reminder that the LORD, “made the earth . . .formed it . . . and established it” (Jeremiah 33:2). I call this grounds for the command. The Lord wants to make sure His supremacy and ability is understood before making the announcement. Certainly He who made the earth has no difficulty controlling the events that took place here.

God’s command for us to call on Him is just as applicable now as it was in the days of Jeremiah. Certainly, the One who formed the earth and spoke the stars into space can handle any need you present to Him. Delay no longer…call on Him and get ready to experience Unsearchable Things that come only through prayer.
