“Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know” Jeremiah 33:3
“Please Daddy, just one more ride” were the words from my two small children as we were about to exit the theme park. I knew they would be asleep before we got out of the parking lot, but I had a long drive home and was in no mood to delay our departure. I gave in and told them ten more minutes and we did one more ride.
Little did I know that about that time there was a terrible crash on the Interstate that killed multiple people, including all of one family. As we drove around the pile of twisted metal, I thought about the ten more minutes in the park. It could have saved our lives.
I believe Jesus called me through the voices of my children. He can do that. In fact, He calls us in many ways…….. through others, through nature, through preaching and most importantly through His Word.
The problem is not in His calling, but in our hearing and listening. We need to be more attuned to His calling. He is everywhere and in everything. He wants to guide every aspect of our lives each day.
The best way to hear Jesus is to be daily in His Word and listen for His voice. It is not necessarily an audible voice, but a guidance you get deep down in your inner being.
We have to be tuned in, our mind on Jesus. We can’t hear Him when our mind is elsewhere. When we listen, we will hear His call.
THOUGHT: Are you listening and looking for Jesus? Keep your mind tuned to Him and He will direct your path. Call on Him. As His Word says: Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know. Jeremiah 33:3
Lord, I want to hear you more, love you more and have you guide my every step. Help me to be more attentive to your voice and follow your directions in every step I take.
