Special Invitation

Over the years, I’ve received many special invitations to different events.

With each invitation, I’ve felt honored to be included.  

I've received invitations to weddings, baby showers, graduation open houses, birthday parties, and many other events.  

When I receive one of these invitations, the first thing I do is go to my calendar to be sure I'm available.  Then I jot down the special event on the calendar as a reminder to participate. 

I think I have a pretty good memory, but many times I've had to rely on my calendar to remember a special event.

In Jeremiah 33:3, God jotted down for all humanity a special invitation.  All we have to do is remember it's available to us.   
This is what Jeremiah 33:3 says,
‘Call to me and I will answer you
and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’

When we face difficulties, often calling on the Lord is the very last thing we remember to do.  In times of trouble, sickness, distress, danger, etc. who's your go-to person? 

One of my favorite things about receiving a special party invitation is the takeaway gift for all those who attended.   

It might be a slice of CAKE and who doesn't love cake!  Whatever the special event might be, usually, there's a little something for those who choose to participate.

And God's special invitation is no different.  His special parting gift to us is, "I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know."

We’re all invited.  

We’ve all received our special invitation.   

We only need to call on Him and He will answer.
