Voice mails can be exasperating ~ particularly if you are needing to contact someone immediately. Duly noted: it works both ways. I’m sure others have been put off when they could not reach me. We all like immediate response.
Jeremiah 33:3 [Message] reads: “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.”
His promise is to answer us ~ not always the answer we wished for ~ but ‘Father knows best.’ His line is never busy; He says He will answer. In fact, not only will He answer, but He wants to tell us ‘marvelous and wondrous things,’ things that we could never have figured out on our own.
I’m an avid journal writer. I’ve listened to and recorded messages from the Lord for years. There’s no doubt in my mind that He has remembered every message I’ve sent to Him. Most important though are the ‘marvelous and wondrous things’ He’s shared with and promised to me.
What does He want me to do with the messages He’s spoken to me? He wastes no words. He is intentional. His plan is in place ~ and it’s a good one. My faith must re-awaken to what He has said and what He has promised me.
A Prophet once said, “When you receive a prophetic word from the Lord: Load it! Aim it! and Shoot it!”
My understanding of that admonition is: Load it…that is, take it off the proverbial shelf and accept it by faith. Aim it…that is, come into agreement with its purpose, regardless of whether I understand its full intent. Shoot it…that is, speak it into the spiritual atmosphere by calling it in by faith, expecting to see it come to pass!
“…Things that you could never figure out on your own…” The ammunition that comes through His spoken word is the power that sets the Kingdom of God into motion through my life. Its caliber and eternal capabilities are more effective than anything I could do on my own.
