Some individuals have a tendency to think out loud. Meanwhile, when alone others are in the habit of talking to themselves. Unfortunately, a stereotype has conceived labeling any who talks to God or hears his voice to be crazy. Thus, to enter a state of prayer requires a certain mindset, crossing over the threshold from the physical into the supernatural.
While Jeremiah was still confined in the courtyard of the guard, the word of the LORD came to him a second time, Jeremiah 33:1.
The power of prayer is like a restaurant which gradually grows as good news spreads through word of mouth. If prayer doesn’t live up to your expectations, you won’t return, disappointed by your overall experience. On the flip side, when you cross the threshold into prayer, a desire is conceived to return as soon as you have a chance.
Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know, Jeremiah 33:3.
In the days of the divided kingdom, Judah began to follow in the footsteps of Israel, gradually turning away from God. Saddened by this choice, the prophet Jeremiah receives a message from the Lord. Essentially, God promises those who cry out to the Lord in prayer, crossing over into the supernatural, will receive answers to the mysteries of this life. Therefore, don’t let time or what others think hold you back from entering prayer. While answers may not come immediately, those who cross this threshold will receive blessings, encouragement and guidance throughout life on earth.
