Compassionate Heavenly Father, in Jesus’ Name I come to You to thank You that just like in Jeremiah’s day of problems, including being in prison, I can, in my troubles, do what You instructed him to do. Jeremiah 33:3 “Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.” Remind me always in troubling situations to call on You for help.
Just like You assured Jeremiah that You will answer, You assure me that You will do the same for me if I will start by asking You for help. Direct me, when asking, to acknowledge that You alone are God and are unlimited in everything, that in my own strength nothing will be accomplished. It is amazing and a privilege that You, the Creator of the universe, want to hear from me and promise to answer me. It is a blessing to know that You, the all wise God, will show me great and mighty things, most of which I have probably not heard about.
In order for this verse to work for me, direct me to realize that it is incumbent on me to be obedient to whatever You show me needs to be done, even if sometimes it might not be pleasant. In addition, show me how to fully trust in Your sovereignty, and acknowledge that You have all the attributes to accomplish all that You want and that my own understanding is not needed. Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.“
Thank you for all the benefits You want to and will provide for me simply by me calling unto You. Amen.
