Moreover the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah a second time, while he was still shut up in the court of the prison, saying, “Thus says the Lord who made it, the Lord who formed it to establish it (the Lord is His name): ‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’ Jer 33:1-3
Wow, when I read this, I just stopped and could not go further. When he was shut up in prison, God opened himself up to Jeremiah. He was shut up from the outside – but God saw it an opportune time to open the gates of revelation for him. Wow!
In your loneliest times, in your lowest moments, when you are shut up in the prison of your pain, or when outsiders put a stop to what you are doing, God is waiting with a revelation!
But he exhorts – Call unto me! All I need to do is call and ask and seek for God to reveal more of Himself and what He wants me to know.
You can stop me, but you can’t stop me from hearing from God – you can’t stop God from reaching out to me – you can’t stop him from ministering to me in the inner courts of my soul.
There are great and mighty things to be known – but who is calling and receiving?
