Jeremiah 33:2-3 (Amplified Bible, Classic Edition)
Thus says the Lord Who made [the earth], the Lord Who formed it to establish it—the Lord is His name: Call to Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things, fenced in and hidden, which you do not know (do not distinguish and recognize, have knowledge of and understand).
Call to me and I will answer. This is one awesome promise from the Living God. The Lord tells us that He will not only answer but He will show us great and mighty things, fenced in and hidden, which we do not know.
This is an invitation by the Living God. He is always inviting us to respond and seek Him. It is God who knocks on the door of the human heart, but it is man who must respond. The Lord tells us that those who draw near to Him, He will draw near to them. God is looking for a response on our part. He has given us freewill, we are not robots. To experience and walk in the promises God has for us we must respond rightly to His word.
The Lord begins this by stating He is the one who formed the earth and established it. He created all things by His spoken word. Without Him nothing could exist. Everything had breath because God allows it to. If He wanted to He could stop all life in a moment with a simple spoken word.
When we stop and meditate upon this truth it puts things in perspective. But it also shows us the power of prayer. As followers of Jesus we have been given authority from Christ Himself. When we begin to pray, things begin to happen and are released into the earth.
All that we see happening on the earth now is because darkness is raging. But in this hour of history the Lord is calling His people to arise and use the authority they have. Just as Jeremiah said in his day, if we will call to the Lord, He will answer. He will show us great and mighty things that are hidden and unknown.
Every day the ball is in our court. God has given us His word. His word is filled with promise after promise. He has promised us victory. He has promised us blessing. He has promised us all we need. But we must respond rightly to His word. It is obedience to His word that unlocks the power of the Living God in our lives. His grace rests upon us because of the faith we have in Jesus Christ. But if we desire to see victory and blessing we must live according to His word. We must build our lives upon the word of God.
Father lead, guide, and direct me this day. Forgive me for my unbelief. Help me to understand the power and authority available to me as a child of God. I ask you to forgive me for being too busy to pray. To allow pursuits in this life that are meaningless next to eternity to take the place of seeking You. Father strengthen me and grow me. Take me deeper in the place of prayer. Truly teach me to trust you at all times. In the mighty name of Jesus, Amen!
