Jeremiah 33 - Prayer Reveals Marvelous And Wonderful Things From God.

you do not know.

Pray - Don't Lose Heart
   What a remarkable verse. What a 
magnificent invitation! God spoke these words originally 
to the prophet Jeremiah when he was imprisoned 
by an evil king who hated his messages from the 
Lord. So there he was, imprisoned and with an 
uncertain future, and God was saying, "Call to Me. 
Pray to Me. I will answer you. I'll show you 
things beyond what you could have ever dreamed." 
   And He says the same thing to each of us. 
But He won't show us those "great and mighty 
things" unless we do call. In Luke 18:1 we read that 
Jesus "spoke a parable to them, that men always 
ought to pray and not lose heart." If you ever 
needed an answer for why you ought to pray, that is 
the best one right there. Jesus told you to. 
Beyond the simple blessing of obedience, however, 
those of us who pray will experience the joy and 
satisfaction of answered prayers - such as the salvation 
of a loved one, a divine healing, or God's 
special provision in our lives. 
   Prayer is Gods appointed way for our 
obtaining things. James 4:2 says, "You do not have 
because you do not ask." There are potential 
answered prayers waiting for you... answers that you 
won't receive unless you ask for them. 
   Maybe you have wondered, Why is it that I 
never seem to know what the will of God is for my 
life? Again, you do not have, because you do not 
ask. Why is it that I never have the opportunity 
to lead people to Christ? You do not have 
because you do not ask. Why am I always just 
scraping by and never seem to have enough? You do not 
have because you do not ask Why do I have this 
affliction or problem that won't go away? You do not 
have because you do not ask. 
   Let me be clear here: I am not suggesting 
that if you pray, you never will be sick again, 
never have an unpaid bill, or never wonder what 
God's will is for your life. But I am saying there 
are many times when God will indeed truly heal 
you, provide for you, and reveal His will to you. 
He's just waiting for you to ask. [Every Day with 
Jesus by Greg Laurie] 


We may keep so near to God that in every 
unexpected trial our thoughts will turn to Him as 
naturally as the flower turns to the sun. Keep your 
wants, your joys, your sorrows, your cares, and 
your fears before God. You cannot burden Him; you 
cannot weary Him. Take to Him everything that 
perplexes the mind. Nothing is too great for Him to 
bear, for He holds up worlds, He rules over all 
the affairs of the universe. Nothing that in any 
way concerns our peace is too small for Him to 
notice. There is no chapter in our experience too 
dark for Him to read; there is no perplexity too 
difficult for Him to unravel. SC99-100 

He [Jesus] says, "My yoke is easy, and My 
burden is light." He bids them seek first the 
kingdom of God and His righteousness, and His 
promise is that all things needful to them for this 
life shall be added. Worry is blind, and cannot 
discern the future; but Jesus sees the end from the 
beginning. In every difficulty He has His way prepared 
to bring relief. Our heavenly Father has a 
thousand ways to provide for us, of which we know 
nothing. Those who accept the one principle of making 
the service and honor of God supreme will find 
perplexities vanish, and a plain path before their feet.  


The Grand Choreographer
   My friend, Pastor Randy, got a phone call 
one morning from a lady who sounded pretty 
distraught. She asked if he would pray for her, so they 
set up an appointment at Randys church. Her 
story was indeed heart-rending. She had been 
studying two years to become a nurse. But when she 
took the final exam to receive her license, she 
didnt pass. She was crushed. 
   But the other part of her story was even 
worse. She had recently learned the devastating 
news that her husband had been unfaithful to 
their marriage vows. 
   Her anguish spoke to Randys heart and 
he prayed earnestly for her. For courage. For 
hope. For friends who would come alongside her. 
That God would give her the gift of forgiveness. 
That the Holy Spirit would fulfill His promise 
and be her Comforter. 
   In a few days she called again. She had 
found courage from Pastor Randys prayers and 
she wondered if they could meet again, but this 
time could he bring someone else with him to join 
them. He promised to try. 
   Providentially, the pastor was conducting 
a series of prayer classes in his church and 
he asked the group if any of them could 
accompany him the next morning. Eight of the class 
members volunteered. He decided to take them all.  
After the rest of the class had left the 
seminar Pastor Randy explained briefly about the 
situation so they could pray intelligently for this 
very troubled lady. 
   After he described some of the details, 
one of the volunteers timidly raised her hand 
and said, Pastor, about two years ago I 
learned that my husband was having an on-going 
affair with his secretary. I thought Id die. But 
Id be willing to share with this lady how the 
grace of God got me through. I know our situations 
are different but maybe my healing can encourage 
her. Pastor Randy thought to himself, Isnt 
it amazing how God brought this lady to our 
group today to bless someone whose story we 
didnt even know yet. 
   A second lady from the group raised her 
hand and said, Pastor, Im a member of the 
State Board of Licensing for nurses. I dont 
know what questions will be on her exam when she 
re-takes it of course, but I do know some things that 
will help her prepare. And Ill be glad to 
coach her through her prep timeI am confident I 
can help her get ready for the exam so she can 
pass next time. And she did. And she did. 
   As Randy told that story I was struck 
again with Gods care " and His guidance. 
About how He had just the right people in the 
right place at the right time. I think they call 
that choreography. God has a different 
explanation: Before they call I will answer. 
Weve read that promise before, havent we? By
