As ministry leaders, we often feel the need to answer every question asked of us. According to the Bible, believers in Jesus Christ have a powerful information supply available to us. What a relief to know we don’t have to have all the answers to the questions we are asked. Not only that, what a relief to know we can turn to the One who has ALL the answers and is willing to speak truth into the questions we face!
The Prophet Jeremiah made this powerful declaration about the Lord. “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 33:2–3, New International Version)
The invitation is clear. God says, “Call on me.” The result? “I will answer you.” What does God promise to provide? Great things, “unsearchable things,” things we cannot know apart from Him. God certainly offers a powerful information supply when it comes to our daily lives! Our choice is seen in our willingness to accept His wisdom and information.
We are at our best when we look to God for answers. Once we realize that God has the answers because He is the answer, we can view every unanswered question as an opportunity to call on Him and listen for His reply.
In Jeremiah 33:2, the prophet Jeremiah pointed to a key character quality or attribute found in God alone. God is our Creator God. There is no other being who can say, “Look, I created that. I started with nothing, and now there is something.” Sure, all humans can make things. We can take some of this and some of that and mix it together to produce a new product. However, only God can begin with nothing and finish with something.
Daily we need to celebrate that God alone creates. In fact, God created you! He knows you and willingly provides answers to the questions you face in life and in ministry. Embracing the truth that God knows things that are unknown to us is a daily resolve positioning our hearts to hear from God making Him our powerful information supply. “Call on me,” God says. When you do, you can know that God will share great things with you—things you cannot know apart from Him!
Today, have you called on God by asking Him the questions you currently face? If not, stop right now and turn to your Creator. Pour out your heart to Him, and then prepare yourself to receive His reply. As you do, you will access a powerful information supply that will never cease to exist or run low on supply! God has the answer because He is the answer! Let’s celebrate that truth today.
