Ask God for Insight and Wisdom
“’Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’” (Jeremiah 33:3)
This passage is impossible to read without wanting it to be true! For me, this passage is a “button pusher.” It indicates that God wants to be an integral part of our lives.
Not only does God reveal his will to us by his Spirit, but he also shows us other great and mighty things. These can include his counsel, guidance, blessing, or opportunities in our professions or for ministry. Nothing is beyond the sovereignty of the Creator of heaven and earth!his passage is impossible to read without wanting it to be true! For me, this passage is a “button pusher.” It indicates that God wants to be an integral part of our lives.
Job—when he acknowledged the awesome acts of the God as the One who hangs the earth on nothing, who stirs up the sea in all of its power, and by his Spirit adorns the heavens—said that we have indeed only seen the mere edges of God’s ways! This is also true of our relationship with the almighty God. We have so much more to see and experience in the days ahead as we continue to learn more about him. As we cultivate our relationship with God, he will consume out attention and influence every aspect of out time, talent, and treasure. God desires that we be consumed by our relationship with him and his Word. As a result, building treasure in heaven will become a by-product of our passion for him.
Think about your giving. Do you ask God to direct your giving? God loves the cheerful giver. You need to be giving your time, talent, and treasure with an “I want to give” attitude! Ask God to give you a joyful spirit in your giving and see what happens!
How often do you “call” to God? What do you think might happen if you started to rely on him for direction? Do you really want this kind of relationship with God? Figure out what small step you might take to grow closer to God.
