Committed to Prayer – Tuesday

“The Lord proclaims, the Lord who made the earth,
who formed and established it, whose name is the Lord;
call to me and I will answer and reveal to you wondrous secrets you haven’t known.”
(Jeremiah 33:2-3)

You have been claimed by God in Christ. You are a child of God. God, “the Lord who made the earth,” invites you to bring your questions and your thoughts, both great and small, and place them before the throne. God then says you will receive an answer. You will be taught. You will discover things you have not known.

Often, we think of God as the one who grants our requests: our divine waiter or cosmic vending machine. We forget that God is also the One who made all that is, and in whom is found all true knowledge and wisdom. God desires to teach us.

Whatever your pursuit, you may bring it before God in prayer. You may ask to receive knowledge, to be instructed. Jesus, as your teacher, will instruct you. He will “reveal to you wondrous secrets you haven’t known.” No question is too great for him; no matter is outside the purview of his glorious wisdom and knowledge.

After all, he is the Lord of all.

Eternal God, help me to trust you as the source of all wisdom,
and to bring before you my questions, my concerns, my every thought. Amen.
