Great Things You Never Imagined

A devotion on Jeremiah 33:3

Call to me, and I will answer you, and will show you great and difficult things, which you don’t know.
–Jeremiah 33:3

The situation seemed impossible. So, King Hezekiah prayed to God to save him from the Assyrians.

God saw the audacity and pride of Sennacherib, the King of Assyria, and his commander Rabshakeh, so He answered King Hezekiah’s prayers for Himself and for His people. He answered them by showing them great and difficult things which they didn’t know.

The “great and difficult thing” God showed Hezekiah and the Israelites was the elimination of 185,000 Assyrian soldiers. God sent an angel into the night to destroy them.

Hezekiah and his people were grateful and amazed. It would have been impossible for them to win against the Assyrians in battle on their own. But God protected them in a miraculous and mighty way. The King of Assyria went back to his homeland, where he was killed by the next king (Read the whole story from 2 Kings 18:13-37 through 2 Kings 19:1-37).

Do you have a seemingly impossible situation in your life? The God who listened to Hezekiah will listen to your prayer too. He will answer and do great things you never imagined. There is no damage, pain, or difficulty that God cannot restore and heal if you believe as King Hezekiah did.

Prayer

Dear God, Thank You so much for loving me and wanting the best for me. Today I call on You, claiming Your promise that You will answer me and will show me great things and difficult things which I don’t know. I pray in Jesus’ name, Amen.

Reflection

What great and wonderful things has God shown me?
