TODAY’S MEDITATION – The answers you are looking for are with the Lord (Jeremiah 33:1-9)

Most of us praise God that He is all-powerful and all-knowing and omnipresent. Yet, we always set out to do everything without Him. We say we believe He cares for us. Yet, we just run anywhere else to look for help in time of need. My brother, my sister are you suffering from your self-sufficiency because you always want to use your own strength to do or achieve things? Today, learn that God is anxiously waiting for us to call so He can answer you and you can access your unclaimed blessings. You see, Jesus prayed before sunrise (Mark 1:35) and after others had gone to sleep (Matthew 26:40). He prayed in the wilderness (Luke 5:16). He spent an entire night in prayer before choosing the Twelve Apostles (Luke 6:12-13). And the Bible says, when Jesus prayed at His baptism, it caused the heavens to open (Luke 3:21), and “while He was praying” that He was transfigured (Luke 9:29). My friend, if Jesus needed to pray, how much more do we need to pray? Our main problem IS NOT unanswered prayers; our problem IS unasked prayers, not to say unclaimed blessings. The Bible says: “Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know” (Verse 3). You see, Jeremiah received this promise in the midst of difficult circumstances. And this applies to you today, just like it applied to Daniel because God does not change: remember that Daniel prayed with his friends and God revealed the king’s dream to Daniel (Daniel 2). James sums up our problem quite well: “You want something but don’t get it. You kill and covet, but you cannot have what you want. You quarrel and fight. YOU DO NOT HAVE BECAUSE YOU DO NOT ASK GOD” (James 4:2). You see, all you have to do is call/ask because God promises if you do, He will answer! Stay blessed in Jesus’ name.
