Now the tables are turned and I receive the phone calls from our daughter, our sons and daughters-in-law. It is a great feeling to be able to help them as they take on the task of cooking delicious recipes. I like being available to help them out as I was helped.
What is even better than recipe assistance though is knowing that we can call on God at any time of the day and He will answer us. There is never a busy signal, circuit busy, dead zone where cell phones don't work, or interference when it comes to our heavenly Father. In fact, this verse is often referred to as God's phone number. Jeremiah 33:3 reads: "Call to Me, and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things which you do not know."
God, our sovereign King, invites us to call to Him and He promises to not only listen but to answer us as well. Even beyond that, He will provide us with information that we do not know. How wonderful to know that our God wants to openly communicate with us. In fact, He loves and desires our communion in prayer so that He can share His wisdom with us.
Are you short on knowledge or wisdom concerning a problem you face? We can either wander through the darkness on our own or we can take advantage of this heavenly "hotline" called prayer and talk with Abba, Father about it. He will answer us and tell us what ingredient we are missing in the recipe of our lives! Selah!
How does God speak to your heart when you call to Him? I welcome your thoughts here.
