Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known. Jeremiah 33:3 (ESV)
Call To Me
Do you need guidance? Do you need direction? Do you need my help? Yes, of course I need your guidance and direction and help. That’s good. Why is that good? If you want and need my guidance and direction and help that should mean that you will stop relying on yourself. It will almost certainly mean that you have reached the end of your resources. You don’t know where else to turn. So, you will wholeheartedly cry out to me for my help. And that is good. Yes, it is good. I do have one thing to say, however. What’s that? I don’t cry out to you and ask for your help only when I am in trouble. You are not my last resort. In fact, I hope it is true for me to say that you are my first resort. Why is that true? It has become my daily pattern and practice to meet with you in prayer. Our time together, in prayer, does not occur only when I want or need something from you. Why do you want to meet daily with me in prayer? I meet with you in prayer because I love you with all my heart and mind and soul and strength. I meet with you in prayer because I want to know you. I meet with you in prayer because I want to live in an intimate relationship with you. I want to hear your voice. I want to follow you to where you lead me. I want to do what you ask me. I want to live the life that you have called me to live. I want to bear fruit for your kingdom. I want to bring glory to your name. I want to shine brightly for you like a star in the universe. I want to be a bold and bright witness for you in the world. These are the reasons why I am meeting with you daily in prayer. It pleases me to hear why you want to meet with me in prayer. You can be sure that I will hear and answer these desires that you have in your heart. You will live in an intimate relationship with me. You will walk with me through life. You will hear my voice guiding you. I will speak to you. I will show you what you do not know. You will live the life that I have called you to live. Thank you, Lord. You are so good and kind to me. I love you.
Lord, I will make it my daily pattern and practice to meet with you in prayer. I will call on you and ask for your help. I will rely on your instruction. I will follow your direction. Teach me. Train me. Guide me. Help me to hear your voice. Show me what I don’t know. Amen
