The LORD who does it, the LORD who forms it to establish it—the LORD is his name, says: ‘Call to me, and I will answer you, and will show you great and difficult things, which you don’t know.’
To make a pie, you follow a recipe.
To see better, you go to the eye doctor.
For help with money, you seek out an experienced financial professional.
So why, then, do we have such a hard time going straight to the source when it comes to learning what is best for us?
God, the One who created us, holds answers to questions of who we are and what we were created to do. He created each of us for specific purposes. But unless you ask God to show you who you really are and let Him direct you along the journey that is meant to be your life, it won’t happen. You’ll be like someone hiring a math tutor to help you get a grasp of the French language.
In a world where self-acceptance, self-discovery, self-worth, and self-confidence are as elusive as the end of a rainbow to a great many people, it only makes sense to put your trust in the One who has all the answers to the questions you have about who you are and what makes you so special.
Today’s verse tells us that God wants to show and tell us amazing, wonderful things. All we have to do is ask.
I call to You for answers to questions I don’t even know how to phrase. Please show me what You have in mind for my life. Give me faith and trust to follow wherever You lead. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
