“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
It’s still dark and I feel a nudge, but everyone is asleep. I listen and feel my blood pumping. It’s Him. He wants to meet with me.
I quietly get up, taking my phone and glasses (can’t forget those!), tiptoe down the stairs and out onto the porch. I love the early morning. Still and quiet, just the birds.
I tell Him, “I’m here” and wonder what He will reveal today. Think of it -GOD, Creator, Sustainer of Life -wants to sit with me!? It never ceases to amaze and I can not resist the call; the urge to come and see a little more of Who He is…
I love my phone with Bible Apps galore in every version, every language! Commentaries, sermons and explanations at the click of a button! Truly the coolest thing I have ever owned. Even the Bible Knowledge Commentary (2 huge volumes), too heavy and cumbersome to carry around are on my phone in an App for easy access- wow just wow.
Every time, every day, God reveals truth tailor-made for the day, if I will read and pray and seek …and wait. He is so willing and available as I make myself the same. How awesome is that?
Today He says, “I will give them one heart and One Way, that they may fear Me forever, for their own good and the good of their children after them. I will make with them an everlasting covenant, that I will not turn away from doing good to them. And I will put the fear of Me in their hearts, that they may not turn from Me.” Jeremiah 32:39-40 ESV
Then I seek and see: Jesus is the “One Way,” and God blesses my children through my faith in Him, He offers His covenant to both me and my descendants, and it is God Who initiates the “fear” or reverence of Himself in our hearts, so that we will not turn from Him.
Oh the depth of the riches of the knowledge of God. His love is deep and wide and I will not come to theend of it. But I am willing to go as far as I can! Daily. Sitting with Him. As He calls.
