The Promise of Great Surprises!

Today we're going to explore the Promise of Answered Prayer a little further and consider the Promise of Great Surprises!

God spoke to Jeremiah these words:

"Call to me and I will answer you
and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know."
~Jeremiah 33:3

Not only will God hear us when we call on Him, not only will He grant us anything we ask according to His will (see yesterday's post), but also He will open His storehouse of wisdom and knowledge and surprise us with great and unsearchable things we know nothing about.

God loves it when we seek Him and His wisdom, and He loves to give us good things. Take a glance at Proverbs 8. In fact verses 17-21 remind me of Matthew 6:33, the verse we so often sing as a chorus.

"Seek ye first the kingdom of God
and His righteousness,
and all these things will be added unto you. Allelu, alleluia."

What things will be added unto us if we seek Him and His kingdom first? Well how about all the things we need . . . plus some great surprises!
