Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know. ~ Jeremiah 33:3
Almighty, infinite, all-knowing God welcomes people to come to Him and to allow Him to reveal things from His heart and mind that would amaze them. Yet when was the last time you learned something brand-new from God that was “great and mighty”? Many Christians today receive this enormous invitation, and yet we rarely experience a fresh, dynamic encounter with God. It’s not that the Lord isn’t willing to reveal more exciting truths to us; we limit our own capacity to receive more from Him.
The problem is never with God. The obstacle is us. We’re far too easily satisfied. We limit God in our lives.
God “is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us” (Ephesians 3:20). Have you seen Him do things in and through your life that absolutely amaze you in their magnitude? If you haven’t, why is that?
~ Excerpted from Unlimiting God by Richard Blackaby
God has plenty of new things to show us. Are we open to Him and paying attention?
