NEED A MIRACLE? – GIVE GOD A CALL!
by Eddie Lawrence

Jeremiah 33:3  ‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’

1. THE INVITATION
Jeremiah 33:3  Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’

-Judah was in captivity and the situation seemed hopeless and impossible, yet God takes the initiative and extends an invitation to His people to call to Him.

-Though this historically for the cities of Judah, it shows us God’s heart for us as well when we are in circumstances where a favorable outcome seems impossible.

-God invites us to call Him. Some have called this verse of Scripture, “God’s Phone Number.”

-In the New Testament, James says, “We have not because we ask not.”

-Could it be that between you and the miracle you need, all that is needed, is for you to cry out to God? Have you? Will you?

-Interestingly, it is Judah (which means praise) that God is speaking to. It is the people of praise that had lost sight of who they were? They were the people of praise and yet they were not calling on God. The enemy will often come against us and shut down our true identity to keep us away from our true destiny.

2. THE RECIPROCATION
Jeremiah 33:3  ‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’

-This is one of those promises where God says, “If you’ll do something, I will reciprocate and I’ll do something.”

-Amazingly, God asks us to do something we can do (Call on Him) and He will do something we can’t do (Great and Mighty Things).

3. THE DEMONSTRATION

Jeremiah 33:3  ‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’

-These great and mighty things in Judah’s case involved moving upon a foreign nation to bring about the freedom of a people who had been held in bondage…..and God did it!

 

-(Share a story of a time when you saw God bring a powerful breakthrough in your life or family that turned things around for you.)

-I love the idea that God says, “I will show you….” In other words, you will be able to watch and see it with your own eyes.

-Do you need a right before your own eyes miracle of God to happen in your life?

-Do you need something great and mighty to happen in your circumstances?

-Do you need something do that will take and act of God to perform? Well, here’s your promise to claim.

4. THE REVELATION
Jeremiah 33:3  ‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things,which you do not know.’

-I wanted to point out something to you in this last phrase that is encouraging to me. The Lord says that what He will do is in the category of things you do not know.

-Often, we become overwhelmed and anxious because we cannot figure out a situation. We simply do not know what to do. We do not know how it can work out. This promise of God assures us that He operates in a realm beyond our knowledge. Maybe it goes without saying, but I am going to say it anyway. GOD KNOWS MORE THAN YOU DO. GOD KNOWS MORE THAN WE DO.

-Think through some of the miracle stories in Scripture and see if what God did is what you would have done.

-Would you have thrown up a wall of fire and then had the wind blow to part to Red Sea?
-Would you have had those three guys thrown into the furnace and got in there with them?
-Would you have used a little boy to hurl a piece of gravel to kill the giant in the land?
-Would you have used a little boy’s lunch to feed a multitude?
-Would you have sent someone fishing to find a coin in a fishes’ mouth to pay your taxes?

-Don’t sweat about how God will bring your miracle, just place your faith in Him and trust Him to do it anyway He wants to do it.

Conclusion- To sum all this up, if you need a move of God to change your circumstances, then you do the praying….. and let God to the answering. I think this would be a good time for us all to pray……
