Call on God

We have a wonderful promise to consider today.  Though it was written over 2500 years ago to the prophet Jeremiah, our God is unchanging and we can claim it today!  God still delights to reveal Himself when we heed His plea...'Call unto me!'

Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

(Jeremiah 33:3)

God never gives commands without a reason;  His instructions always result in our good and His glory.  Prayer has many results and warrants a study in itself; today's promise though relates to the revelations God will give to those who call out to Him.  Prayer is the super highway of spiritual communication.  Prayer has a potential power to blast through earthly realities and unveil spiritual treasures beyond our experience. God is Spirit and we are made in His image.  God is willing to work in the realm of our natural bodies--to speak through circumstances--but His deepest revelations are to the spirit within. 

It is the cry of God's heart that we will commune with Him so that we can experience His all-encompassing love.  Hebrews tells us that those who seek Him must both believe that He exists and that He is good.  Faith in God's goodness allows us to place our hurts, fears and even frustrations before His healing, purifying presence.  As we cry out with those deep concerns, God reveals the great and might things we do not know and our burdens become light.  We see Him for who He is and are freed to worship without reservation.  For seeing God ALWAYS results in worship.

Don't settle for a social call on God.  Truly call on Him Him to show Himself to you and be prepared to rejoice!
