Forty Day of Prayer, VIII
Jeremiah 33:3 says, “Call unto Me and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things which thou knowest not.” Late this afternoon I took the time to read the entire 33rd chapter of Jeremiah and it was an encouragement.
God is very interested in Israel, (and us as grafted in) and wants to answer prayer. The request has to be made however.
I just finished helping a ninth grade student with biology. His grade is an all-time low. He seems to think that his teacher doesn’t really care. When I asked him if he had discussed a plan with his teacher for elevating his grade, he looked sheepish. “Kinda” was the response.
Regretfully, the teacher may have “written him off” as a poor student. Students must be willing to be proactive too. I’ll see. Tomorrow I am accompanying the grandparent/guaardian to teacher conferences.
When I ask, I’ll get an answer. Then I can proceed to remedy the problem we face. When we call, God does answer. He is wanting us to ask. God will not push Himself into our lives. The decision is ours.
