Call and He Answers

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

This verse in Jeremiah is an incredible promise. But it is more than that! It is an absolute truth found in God's Word. If you call to Him, He will answer. You do not ask a void for an answer. You ask the omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient God. You ask the Creator of the universe. You ask your loving God who knows you better than you know yourself. You ask your Father for His time, and He gives it willingly and unsparingly because you are precious to Him. You ask the Lord who is everywhere at the same time, and yet He is there for you. You ask an all-powerful God who is there for all who believe in Him. He brings the same power to your need that He used to raise Jesus from the dead (Ephesians 1:19-21). He is able to do immeasurably more than all you ask or imagine in what you have surrendered to Him (Ephesians 3:20). There is no other name that you need, but that of Jesus Christ (Acts 4:12).

He answers your call with great and unsearchable things which you have not known. You may not understand them all with your human mind, but your spirit can receive them because you know that He only imparts truth. You do not analyze His truths. You believe them by faith, and you trust by faith. One day you may understand the truths that are beyond your grasp at this time, and one day you may not understand. Because you love Him deeply and intimately as He has loved you, there is peace in either knowing or not knowingin understanding or not understanding. You believe that He knows best so there is no struggle against His will. There is acceptance and rejoicing. He speaks to your longing spirit and heart because you have peace no matter what surrounds you.

It is when you want all of Him, and have given up all of your own conditions, you can receive not only the unsearchable truths He imparts, but most gloriously, His abiding presence. The unsearchable truths are beyond magnificent, but they can never be who Jesus Christ is–your Redeemer, your Savior, your Friend. Open up your heart and life to Him right at this moment. Call to Him. Pray to Him, and He will answer you not only with His presence, but you will receive powerfully and completely from His magnificent bounty.
