Jeremiah 33 Call Unto Me
In the 33rd chapter of Jeremiah the Lord gives reassurance to the prophet and reaffirms the Davidic covenant. In this he says, “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.” (v.3) and later the Lord states, “Behold, I will bring it health and cure, and I will cure them, and will reveal unto them the abundance of peace and truth.” (v.6). This is such an awesome chapter of hope and reconciliation, and of the healing of the land and the people. We can see the care that God has for his people. He loves and cares, he is a shield and protector to his people. He loves so much that he not only delivers, but he reals and restores.
This is the hope that we have. That Jesus Christ came and died for us to pay the debt of death that we owe. He was buried and took the keys to hell and death. He then rose from the dead, and ascended to the Father. Now he makes intercession for us as our advocate. We who believe in him are no longer tied to this earth, or this body. We have a great hope inside that gives us joy. This hope is in the resurrection of life. Even as Jesus was raised from the dead and received a glorified by, so shall we.
We are no longer trapped here in this existence. We, followers of Christ Jesus, have been given a new life. This new life is one of the spirit. We have been set free from the bonds of the flesh. We know that the few things we posses here in this world are worthless and will eventually rot, and decay. The things we look forward to are everlasting. We now are pilgrims on our way to the promises of God, to be reconciled with him in Jesus Christ. We will soon be glorified, although we do not yet fully understand what that entails, we will understand when we finally see him face to face. This is the gift of God. We have received unmerited favor from God as demonstrated in the grace he bestowed upon us in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Death has no hold on us, no bind is there to keep us in the grave.
“For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement. (Romans 5:6-11)
Look to Jesus, as the Lord says, “Call unto me, and I will answer thee”. Hope is right here waiting for you to call out! Life is right here waiting for you to seek Him! Love is right here waiting for you to open your heart! Peace is right here waiting for you to rest within. There is no fear in Love. You do not need to fear the Lord. He has demonstrated his love towards us.
