“Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.” Jer. 33:3
I love this early morning picture of a bait camp along the Texas coast. An eager angler is getting his boat ready for launch, ready to try his luck in one of bays as the sun begins to make its appearance.
Questions that are probably going through this angler’s mind might be what lure, what bait will work best? Where should I make my first cast? Are the fish going to be shallow or deep?
Did you notice the “Open” sign in the window of the bait camp? If you ever fished along the Texas coast, you know that camps are open very early; some stay open all the time.
Our God never turns off the Open sign. God never takes a break, “Will be back after lunch,” “Closed…See you tomorrow”. He’s there all the time, “Before they call I will answer; while they are still speaking, I will hear.” Isa 65:24
“…Great and unsearchable things you do not know…” Think about that scripture statement from Jeremiah for a minute or two. If I knew everything and could handle everything, every question, why would I need to call, even sometimes to cry out to him? Some of the greatest revelations, answers the Holy Spirit of God have revealed to me have been totally unknown and unexpected.
I awake early in the morning without the need of an alarm clock, on God’s alarm clock, with Him sharing ideas, answers for my day, for my life that the night before were not there.
Before I ever put audible words to my thoughts, he has heard and provides the answer, maybe not right then and now, but when I can handle it.
“He will call upon me, and I will answer him…” Ps 91:15.
“…I will say, they are my people; and they will say, ‘the Lord is our God.” Zec 13:9.
“You will cry for help and He will say, here I am…” Isa 58:9.
“…I will be with him in trouble. I will deliver him and honor him.” Ps 91:15.
Maybe you have lots of questions now in your life. Remember, God never turns the “Open” sign off.
Lord thank you that you are with us always. You know our needs, our hurts before we even bring them to mind. Scripture tells us to pray always, be in constant communication with you. You read our thoughts before we even sort them out. When things don’t make sense or seem impossible, help us to remember that you are already on the job. Pause, thank you God, for you already have the answers…” I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.”
