Jeremiah 33:3 "Call upon Me and I will answer you."


Names have a way of revealing who a person is. And, nicknames can be even more revealing … The King (Elvis), the Biebs (Justin Bieber), The Greatest (Muhammad Ali).

The most frequently used name for God in the Bible is “Jehovah.” It means “to be” or “to live.” Jehovah is all-knowing, all-powerful, unchanging and fully present everywhere.

Now, read the scripture again. Whatever need you have, burden you carry, or fear your face, you can call upon the all-knowing, all-powerful, unchanging Jehovah and have confidence, He will answer you.


Thank God that you can come to Him anytime, anywhere, with anything. Acknowledge that nothing you carry or face is too great for Him. And thank Him in advance for what He will do.


Refer back to the list of needs you made a few weeks ago. Have any of them already been met? Are there any you need to reconsider? Because sometimes there's a disconnect between what we think we need and what God knows is best for our lives. If so, pray for clarity.
