“Call to Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know.” (Jeremiah 33:3)
We could hear it before we could see it. One lone goose, honking loudly on his way in. If any other geese had been on the small lake this beautiful autumn morning, they would have answered the call.
“Hunters know this”, my husband explained. “That’s the reason for the turkey callers that they use; they can learn where the birds are.”
The goose paddled around, near the water’s muddy edge by the lily pads, all alone. No answer. No geese were on this lake. Perhaps they had all flown south for the winter. It was well into fall, and there’d been one chilly frost already.
I thought, good thing we can call to God ANY time at all, and He is never gone. Isn’t it amazing? This almighty God of the universe, who is unchanging, sovereign, steadfast, and ever-faithful, is the same God who keeps a listening ear out for those calling out- for companions, for help, for whatever. And, He will answer. It’s a promise.
That is good news.
