Today's Verse: Jeremiah 33:3

Thursday, May 26, 2005

'Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.'
— Jeremiah 33:3

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

This was originally spoken to Jeremiah about the fate of Jerusalem. However, this promise is true in special ways for us as well. God wants us to call to him. God often waits for us to ask before he blesses us what he longs to give us. Yet we lack the ability to comprehend and receive all the great truth about God. He is simply too big and too glorious for us to fully apprehend him in his grace.

My Prayer...

Father and Almighty God, you are breath-taking and beyond my ability to comprehend. Dear Father, please bewilder the world by coming on a day everyone least expects it. I do long to know you better, dear Father. In Jesus' name. Amen.
