Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know. – Jer. 33:3
1. Don’t overlook your opportunity to call on the Lord
In Jeremiah 33, Jerusalem is falling to their enemy, and the prophet Jeremiah is actually shackled and imprisoned when God reveals His plan to restore Israel. This verse is a reminder that even when you feel like you’re missing so much in your life, God still wants you to call on HIM because He wants to speak directly to YOU. Sometimes we can get impatient with God and think He isn’t speaking because a certain thing hasn’t been revealed to us yet, but He IS speaking to you, guiding you in this very moment. He wants to you call on Him. So when you’re searching for something more, remember that to the Lord is where you need to go before anywhere else!
2. Worry less about what others are thinking of you, and focus on the what God says!
Have you ever been interested in a guy and wondered if he was thinking about you in the same way? Have you ever wondered why someone gave you that funny look when you did nothing at all? If you’ve ever experienced anything like that, you know what it feels like to momentarily be consumed by the thought of what could be. You’ve spent time analyzing that person’s actions, wondering how it’s going to affect your relationship with them. If that’s ever been you, let this verse be a reminder that even in those moments where we feel imprisoned by the things you can’t stop thinking about, we have the opportunity through Jesus Christ to shift our focus to the One who already knows how this is going to pan out. This week, I challenge you to look at those moments where you find yourself wondering if so-and-so still thinks about you, or if you’ll make a good impression in front of that one person, that you’ll instead go before the Lord in prayer, asking Him to reveal the kind of things you need to focusing on instead. Spend time in His word daily, knowing that He IS going to speak to you through it!
