Bits & Pieces: Prayer Promises

"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 I will tell you great and mighty things which you do not know,' (Jeremiah 33:2, 3)."

a.) Like Jeremiah, if we are to know God and His plans for us, it must be revealed to us. In this powerful passage, God commands our calling upon Him, assures us of His certain response, and challenges us to believe Him for magnificent answers. Oh, that we would pray in a manner worthy of the great God Who bids us come!

b.) Isn't it amazing that God must issue a command for His children to call upon Him! He knows only too well our prideful reluctance to consistently depend upon Him in prayer. How very much He longs for us to take Him at His Word!

c.) Our God is looking for people who will trust Him. It's rather sad that, faithful Sovereign that He is, we still doubt His willingness to answer our calling. We can't even begin to imagine the great and mighty things He wants to reveal to us!
