Daily Devotional for Thursday November 09, 2017


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


We sit with no real objective but to listen and share. I have the honor of sitting each week for about an hour with a friend. There is no agenda or timetable to keep. We enjoy each other's company. We laugh; we share back and forth, and I always come away feeling blessed by our time together. Today's scripture speaks of prayer and calling out to God. He will answer and tell us great and mighty things. My friend and I discuss many things, but I especially like when he shares about God's Word. He would never admit it, but he is quite the Bible teacher. His teachings have taught me so much and have made me dig deeper in God's Word and I am grateful. How many of us just sit and talk with God? Yes, it's prayer, but just sitting, listening, and sharing. I promise you'll come away with some wonderful insights from spending time with Him as I do with my friend. God wants to sit with you... can you spare the time? 


Personal Application: Continue spending time with the Lord daily. Sow righteousness and reap the fruit of God's unfailing love.

Family Devotional: Read this chapter to your family. Ask them if anything spoke to them as you read. Talk about their answers and show them that one important aspect of this chapter is that we must continue to spend time with the Lord and keep our hearts focused on His plans and purposes. Pray for them.
