How often do you call out to God? How’s your prayer life? Really? I know it’s probably not where you want it to be. Somewhere deep down you probably know you ought to be spending more time with God in prayer. (Believe me, writing this Morning Brew I’m convicted of the very same thing).
Rather than load you down with more guilt, I want to simply invite (and hopefully inspire) you to call out to God.
2 “This is what the Lord says, he who made the earth, the Lord who formed it and established it—the Lord is his name: 3 ‘Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’ Jeremiah 33:2-3
The invitation made to Jeremiah is still valid for us today. The Lord, the God who created this universe with a spoken word, the Lord is his name. He created things in an instant that has taken humanity thousands of years to unpack and discover (and we’re not even close to done yet). This Sovereign Lord, who holds the fate of nations in the palm of his hands, invites you to call out to him.
He wants to answer you and tell you great an unsearchable things you do not know. He wants to reveal himself. God is not a reclusive God, anti-social and only reluctantly revealing himself when he’s forced to. God wants us to know him, to behold him, to worship him. Have you called out to him?
God wants to reveal great and unsearchable things about this world to you. He wants to give you insight into others, his creation, things to come that can make this world a better place. Have you called out to him?
God wants to reveal great and unsearchable things about you to you. He wants you to see the depths of your own soul, the untapped potential that’s waiting to be unleashed, the inner beauty of a human he hand-formed in his image. Have you called out to him?
How often do you call out to God? Call often, call sincerely, call humbly, and then get ready for God to show up in your midst.
Prayer: God, I call out to you in sincerity and humility. Please reveal to me great and unsearchable things I do not know.
