Have YOU picked up the phone and called?

Jeremiah heard this Word from The Lord while he was confined. His situation looked bleak, as this was not a good time to be a true prophet of God. False prophets were popular, but truth-bearers have been persecuted in every generation, especially the one Jeremiah ministered in.

But God’s promise was true. Jeremiah was imprisoned, but his life was in hearing and speaking the messages of God. Even in a pit, he would be able to converse with the Lord (Jer 38). God will speak to us if we will only listen. He has given us His Word, and He has given us His Holy Spirit to be able to discern and keep it.

This scripture is often referred to as God’s phone number: JE333. We are invited to “call” Him and He promises to answer us and tell us “great and mighty things” we never knew. He gave Jeremiah His personal number. Imagine meeting the President at a restaurant somewhere. The two of you hit it off. Before he leaves, he slips you a card with his personal cell number and says, “Call me anytime. We’ll talk.” Wow! What an honor! You have the President’s private number! How much greater is it that we have God’s private number, and not only that, we are invited to use it. This is proof that God longs for a relationship with us. All we have to do is to pick up the phone.

And we pray:

Father, I am so grateful that You want a relationship with me. You invite me to call on You and You promise that You will converse with me. I mean so much to You that You have given me Your personal number, all glory! Amen.

The Word God had for Jeremiah was one of hope and promise (Jer 33:6-9), along with a true Word about the reality of the wickedness of the times. No matter what circumstances you find yourself in, God has a Word of hope for you. Even when you have read the Bible through a hundred times, go to Him for a fresh Word and be filled with hope.
