Devotion of the Day

“Prove Me Now”

Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.
Jeremiah 33:3

We are inclined to pray as though this world were in the grip of cold, fixed laws, with only the remote possibility that God might occasionally break through. We timidly whisper a few feeble petitions barely hoping, but certainly not believing that we shall receive. But God is not a prisoner in His own universe. Jesus is the Lord of all creation, King of kings and Lord of lords. The devil can go only so far as God allows him to go.

God is waiting to show Himself strong in behalf of those whose heart is perfect toward Him. He invites us to prove Him. He longs to demonstrate what He can do, exceeding abundantly above all we ask or think, great and mighty things which we know not.

“Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”

This is our Father’s world. God is till on the throne of creation. Call on Him and He will answer.

Quote of the Day

Years ago, my friend George Beverly Shea asked me to record a six-minute message. In preparation, I began to wonder, “What can you do in six minutes?” It dawned upon me that one may be born in six minutes or die in six minutes. In such a brief time we can talk to God in prayer and He can talk to us in His Word. It is long enough for Christ to return, as He shall do in the twinkling of an eye. And six minutes is long enough for one to be born again! I found that more things can happen in six minutes than we can talk about in six minutes!
