Discipleship Devotional Study Guide – Becoming Like Christ – Day 173 – Jeremiah 33:3 – Call To You – Growing As Disciples

‘Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’ Jeremiah 33:3 (NIV)

Call To You

I will call to you. I will make it my regular practice to come to rely on you. That will be very good. Why will you make it your regular practice to come to me to call out to me? I need your help. I am not all wise. I am not all knowing. I cannot see the future. Even the very next step before me is often unclear. I don’t want to wander off course. I do not want to drift away from you. I don’t want to serve my own interests. I don’t want to follow my own plan. I want to know your will and walk in your ways. I want to be able to go and do what you ask of me. Those are very good desires you have in your heart. I haven’t even gotten to the heart of why I will come to you and cry out to you. I’m listening. I want to live in an intimate relationship with you. I want to know you. I want to love you. I want to live my life with and for you. None of these things would be possible if I did not live my life in a dialogue of prayer with you. That is true.

Do you expect to hear from me? Do you believe that I will speak to you? Do you have faith that I will hear and answer your prayers? Are you certain that I will show you what you do not know? I have no doubt about any of these things. Your promises are true and sure and certain. I have no doubt that you will speak to me. That is very good. You have been speaking to me. You have been leading me. You have been guarding and guiding my life. You have been giving me your wisdom and counsel and understanding. That is true.

You do have more to say on the subject of hearing from me. Yes, I do. I have no doubt in you. I do have some doubt in myself. What doubt do you have in yourself? I sometime doubt that I will have the ability to hear you. This doubt does not discourage or depress me. In light of my doubt in myself, or maybe concern is a better word, I will simply pray that you will make me better able to hear from you. I suspect that as I keep on drawing near to you, I will become more able to hear your voice speaking to me. Yes, you will. Don’t you already know this to be true? Yes, I do. Then keep on drawing near to me with the certainty that I will keep on speaking to you. Be sure that I will tell you what you do not know. Yes Lord, I will. That will be very good.

Lord, there is so much I do not know. I believe that as I meet with you in prayer you will show me what I do not know. Show me what I need to know. Guard and guide and protect my steps. Give me your wisdom and insight and understanding as I walk with you. Amen

Discipleship Devotional Study Guide – God’s Will – Jeremiah 33:3 – Call To Me – Growing As Disciples

‘Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’ Jeremiah 33:3 (NIV)

On My Knees

Will you come to me? Will you call out to me? Will you devote yourself to me in prayer? Will you come and ask me for what you want and need? Will you pray faith filled prayers that only I can hear and answer? Will you ask me to show you great and mighty things that you do not know? You will pray for what you can barely think or hardly even imagine? Will you pray prayers that will draw attention to me? Will you pray prayers that will bear fruit for my kingdom? Will you pray prayers that will bring glory to my name? You have asked me a lot of questions. You are asking me to go deeper. You are asking me to pray bigger. You are asking me to pray for more. You want me to ask for what I can barely think of or hardly even imagine. Am I right? Am I hearing you correctly? Yes, you are hearing me correctly.

Why do you think I want you to go deeper and pray for more? You want me to bear fruit for your kingdom and bring glory to your name. You want people to be drawn to you through what you will do in and through my life. You want me to shine as a bright witness for you in the world. What I can do is small and weak. Glory will not come to you through the feeble work of my hands. People will not be drawn to you by what I can do all by myself. My efforts alone will bear no eternal fruit and will bring no glory to your name. That is not what you want. That is not your desire. Your hand is on me. You want to use me. You want me to be able to accomplish your purposes and fulfill your plans. That’s right. Only you can make me able to do your work. That’s true.

I will come to you. I will get down on my knees. I will become serious. I will devote myself to you in prayer. I will ask you to give me prayers to pray that are beyond what I can think or even imagine. I will ask you to work in and through my life. I am your servant. I am ready for your use. Work in and through me for your glory. Help me to be a bold and bright witness for you in the world. Show me great and mighty things I do not know. Here I am now, I am crying out to you. That is very good.

Lord, my prayers have been weak and small. I have not gotten down on my knees to ask you for much. Help me to pray prayers that are strong and large. Help me to pray prayers that you will hear and answer. Show me great and mighty things I do not know. Amen
