Unsearchable Things

Daily Devotional2 Minutes

“This is what the LORD says, he who made the earth … ‘Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.'” – Jeremiah 33:2-3 NIV

Obeying God, Jeremiah had delivered an unpopular message: He would be giving Jerusalem into the hands of Babylon. It was a message designed to help them know how to respond. But instead of heeding God’s warnings, they sent His messenger, Jeremiah, to prison.

For Jeremiah, this could have seemed like a hopeless situation. But therein prison, God spoke to him and gave him a glorious promise. He wasn’t to feel discouraged. God was right there with him. If Jeremiah sought Him, God would move in new ways and reveal “great and unsearchable things” he did not know.

These words could have sounded unbelievable to Jeremiah. Yet they were true. God was reminding him that He could speak from any location. And there was much more He wanted to teach him.

This word applied to His people. Israel, too, faced a situation that seemed impossible. Yet He also promised abundance. One day Jerusalem would hear the voice of joy and gladness. And God would “restore the fortunes of the land” (v. 11).

These words also are true for you! You may feel overwhelmed with problems that seem impossible to solve. You may feel imprisoned. But remember that you serve Almighty God. He is more powerful than any problem you face.

Accept His invitation – His command. Call to Him – frequently and often. He promises to answer you, “and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.”


Reflection Question: Compose a prayer asking God to work in your impossible situation(s).

Father, I seek new revelation. Speak to me. Help me be sensitive to Your Spirit. Help me grow in faith. In Jesus’ name, amen.
