Scripture Reading For Today — Jeremiah 33:3; 1 Corinthians 2:9-16
Our first scripture text for today Jeremiah 33:3, is somewhat another expression of the IFTTT concept that we spoke about in yesterday’s devotional.
God said to His Prophet Jeremiah—
“Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know”.
This was an invitation to Jeremiah, to avail himself of the deep insights that an understanding of the mind of God can bring to a man of finite understanding.
It is an invitation that God still extends to us His people, even in these present times.
God had previously asked Jeremiah to perform a prophetic act that was totally at variance with what the events that Jeremiah could see in the natural suggested.
After doing what God asked him to do, he began to second guess himself, doubting if indeed he had heard God in the first place. Then, he prayed to God
for understanding and God answered him, with the invitation, “call to me…!”
The pertinent part of God’s response to Jeremiah that we will focus on today, is the promised consequence of the answer to the call — “I will show you great and mighty things that you do not know!”
Friend, in those matters concerning your destiny, the solution to the challenges and issues that you are going through right now, matters concerning your
marriage, business, ministry or career, you can call to God specifically regarding any one of these issues of life, and ask Him to show you what you
didn’t know, or to show you what you need to know.
Our second text for today (1Corinthians 2:9-12), takes us deeper into this invitation — through the work of the Holy Spirit in us, we have access
to the mind of Christ, and can have an understanding of God’s plans, purposes and agenda, that are beyond the capability or limits of the natural mind.
With this in mind, God is inviting you today, to call to Him over this fasting period, and He will answer you by showing you extraordinary things that
are beyond your natural, human comprehension. Things, the knowledge of which can make the difference between failure and victory in your life!
As we bring the issues of our lives and our destinies before God this week, our prayer cry as we look to Him will be, dear Heavenly Father, I Call
to you in the Name of your precious Son Jesus, to show me Your ways:
• Show Me What To Do
• Show Me What I Have
• Show Me What To Use
• Show Me Where To Go
• Tell Me What To Say
Grant me access to Your mind, that my life may align with Your agenda for my destiny.
