Call Out

Yesterday provided me with two of my best hours in recent times… a good ‘ole heart to heart with my wife and a good friend. The sharing was honest and unpolished. The line between visiting and praying was razor thin, easily crossed. It felt nothing like a church service or a prayer meeting. We talked about more Scripture than in most Bible studies, but it felt nothing like most classes I’ve sat in. It was a treat, to be sure.

One passage that was mentioned has lodged itself into my mind… Jeremiah 33:2-3.

This is what the LORD says, he who made the earth, the LORD who formed it and established it—the LORD is his name: Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’

Searching for unsearchable things… that strikes me as a truly futile quest. Yet here is the Former and Establisher of all extending an offer: If we will call to Him, He will lead us into things beyond our finding. He will give us access to depths and heights currently out of our reach. He will extend the limits of our lives to lengths we’ve never even known existed.

If we call to Him…

I find that thought wonderfully inspiring today… so I’m leaving it for you.

  1. I want to be on that razor’s edge! It is so uplifting when divine moments like those break into our busy schedules and interupt our lives. Wait, maybe I’m looking at this from the wrong angle…it is a shame that divine moments seem to be clouded over by our busy schedules.

  2. jay, what an awesome verse, hay. i wish i could have had a chance to talk with you on Sunday there. Sorry i had to scoot so soon. Great, inspiring words on Sunday. “Waste me on you, Lord” is one of the best lines to a song i have ever heard. later.
