Sometimes my granddaughters call me on the phone just to say hello or to see if they can come over. They live just 3 doors down so they come over pretty often which is okay by me. When they call I almost always get two calls – one right after the other. I get two calls because Avery who is five usually makes the first call; she has known our number for a while. Haley who is the youngest is three and now that she knows our phone number she wants to be sure that she gets a chance to call us up too. Thus, we receive not one call but two. I love those girls and they can call me anytime they want. I am glad they know my phone number.
I just got two calls from them early this morning and it reminded me about God’s phone number. I was always told that God’s phone number is Jeremiah 33:3, “Call to Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know.” There is some interesting background to that story in Jeremiah; read it and you’ll be blessed. Jeremiah had some burdens on his heart and the Lord invited Jeremiah to call Him and have a talk. You can rest on the same promise. The Lord is ready to talk to you, He promises to hear your prayers and to respond. That’s His phone number, give Him a call. He is always ready to listen.
