Want to know a secret?
Experience with me this intimate moment where the Lord leans in close and whispers in your ear, “Ask me and I will tell you remarkable secrets.” There is such beauty in the intimacy with a personal Savior Who longs to share good things, good thoughts with each of us.
The moment I read the promise given to Jeremiah in chapter 33, I wanted to know what he had done to establish such a privileged conversation with so great a Creator. Verses 1-3 tell us, “While Jeremiah was still confined in the courtyard of the guard, the Lord gave him this second message. The Lord Who made the earth, Who formed and established it, whose name is the Lord, says, ‘Ask me and I will tell you remarkable secrets you do not know about things to come.'” Boxed in by a fence, under the watch of a guard, no control of His own, seemingly in a hopeless situation, the Savior breathes out remarkable words of hope; secrets only He knows.
In the most confining moments of our lives, we ask everyone we can for advice; sprinkle those thoughts with a dusting of prayer; and hold on for what ever is ahead. But there is a place where the Savior longs to take us, beyond the walls that hedge us in. He calls to you, “Forget the walls surrounding you. Come up to the high places!” Nothing can keep us from meeting Him high in the holy place but our own lack of faith. If you are fenced in today, sing sweetly, “Lord, I wait, I wait on you,” and listen for the remarkable that only He knows, yet He longs to share with you. In that moment there will be great freedom.
