Message of the Day: God’s Promises are not to Weaken, but to Strengthen our Prayers.
‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’(Jeremiah 33:3, NKJV)
In Jeremiah 32:1-15, Jeremiah buys a field as a practical demonstration of his faith in the future restoration of Israel. After buying the field, Jeremiah began to have doubts. It seemed to him almost too much to expect that God could allow such a worthless people ever to return to their land. He therefore prayed to God, seeking to reassure himself that nothing is too hard for a God who is loving and powerful (Jeremiah 32:16-19). God replies that nothing is too hard for him. Certainly he will destroy the nation as a form of discipline but he will bring them back to their land. He will do a work within them so that they will know him in a more spiritual relationship than they have previously experienced. They will have a renewed devotion to God and a fresh experience of God’s blessing (Jeremiah 32:26-41).
After this reassurance, God encourages Jeremiah to ask for further revelations of his plans for his people (Jeremiah 33:1-3). Though the process of discipline and restoration seem so hard to understand, yet God had revealed those things to Jeremiah.
We are urged by no less than God to pray for that which he has determined to grant. God’s promises are not to slacken, but to quicken our prayers.
