I Don't Know What I Don't Know

“Call to me and I will answer you; I will tell you great mysteries of which you know nothing.” ~Jeremiah 33:3

Two things strike me as particularly worthy of notice in the text.

I. The invitation—”Call unto me.”

II. The promise connected with the invitation—”And I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you know not.”

Where do you turn first in times of trouble? Jeremiah is recognized as a prophet by all three of the Abrahamic religions. At the time of the above verse Jeremiah was in prison for speaking truth to power. Jeremiah’s faithfulness, in the exercise of his prophetic office, was then the real, substantial cause of his imprisonment. Zedekiah, King of Judah appears to have been negotiating with King Nebuchadnezzarto turn Judah and Jerusalem over to Babylon to save his own skin. Jeremiah was in big trouble. He was imprisoned under the pretext of being a traitor but God said to Jeremiah “Call to me.”

“I answer everyone who invokes me,

I am with them when they are in trouble;

I bring them safety and honor.” Psalm 91:15

Have you ever made a discovery, learned something new, had a revelation or insight into something you knew nothing about? Of course you have and the experience can be awe-inspiring. Maybe that is why this verse from Jeremiah is so tantalizing.

When you seek me you shall find me, when you seek me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:12

Amen.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting
my own weblog and was curious what all is required to get
set up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100% certain. Any tips or advice would be
greatly appreciated. Cheers
