READ: Jeremiah 33-34
RE-READ: “This is God’s Message, the God who made earth, made it livable and lasting, known everywhere as GOD: ‘Call to me and I will answer you. I’ll tell you marvelous and wondrous things that you could never figure out on your own.’” – Jeremiah 33:2-3 (The Message)
Find a quiet place and read this passage slowly. Pause in the silence. Let these words wash over you. Make them personal. Claim them as God speaking specifically to you.
THINK: What sticks out to you? What word or phrase settles deeply in your soul? Why?
Deep down do you really believe that God will answer you when you call to him? Why or why not? What does this passage say about his character?
As you hear God’s message, spoken straight from his being to you, what do you feel? What words from this passage can you make your own?
PRAY: Ask God what he wants you to do with the word or phrase that he has given you. Ask him how you can best live out this gift that the Holy Spirit has placed before you. Listen patiently in the silence for the response. You may be tempted to move on to some other thought or task, but resist, simply resting in the silence yet listening actively.
LIVE: Go and live out the answer of what the Holy Spirit instructed you to do today.
