While Jeremiah was still confined in the courtyard of the guard, the word of the Lord came to him a second time: “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 33:1-3
In researching the Judges 15-16 Bible Study, Rev. MacArthur cross-referenced Samson’s prayer for water with Jeremiah 33:3, a promise that God will answer our prayers.
I do not think this promise was exclusive for Jeremiah at that moment. The following verses are grim in that God promises that the streets of Jerusalem will be littered with dead bodies. But then God declares to Jeremiah that His covenant with the Levites who serve Him and David who provided a kingly line is as inviolable as the covenant with day and night.
When God makes a promise, He keeps that promise. When God enters our heart, He will never leave. We may ignore Him at times, but He will never leave us.
And what is so wonderful about the promise in Jeremiah 33:3 is that God will reveal to us things that are unsearchable. In these days of typing something into a search engine and getting “something,” that boggles the mind.
Of course, the search engine may not give us what we want, but we can search.
What is it that is unsearchable? Something that we never thought to ask, perhaps. God knows things about us that we do not know about ourselves.
There is so much of God that we do not know and we do not know enough to even ask, but in loving Him, we want more and more.
Soli Deo Gloria. Only to God be the Glory.
