One More Time

Read Jeremiah 33:1 through 35:19

Michael sat in the doctor’s office and let these words sink in: “cancer... malignant... operate... chemotherapy.” He was discouraged. Since he had first discovered the lump on his stomach, Michael had prayed desperately. He had asked others to pray. He had believed that God would heal him.

While Jeremiah was still confined in the courtyard of the guard, the word of the Lord came to him a second time: “This is what the Lord says, he who made the earth, the Lord who formed it and established it—the Lord is his name: ‘Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know’” (Jeremiah 33:1–3).

Jeremiah had done all God had asked of him, and now he was in jail. God’s Word came to Jeremiah again.

God never tires of our requests. He doesn’t grow weary of our cries for mercy, peace, healing, or understanding. While He doesn’t always answer when and how we want, He does answer. In the meantime, He invites us to call on Him as often as we need to.

Challenge for Today: Continue to trust God, even when things look bleakest.

Prayer is our link with God, an awesome avenue through which we can express praise and adoration to Him for His goodness, love, and mercy; and an avenue through which we can voice our petitions and concerns. God's Word assures us that we can "come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need" (Hebrews 4:16).

Prayer also moves the hand of God on behalf of needs and circumstances in our church, our families, our community, nation, and world. Take time to pray and intercede for these areas as God leads you. Become part of a prayer group and intercede with others in times of corporate prayer. As you seek God's help, expect reports of great victory to follow as God answers prayer.
