Jeremiah 33:2, 3  The Lord who made the earth, the Lord who forms it to establish it, the Lord is his name, says this: “Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and incomprehensible things you do not know.” (CSB)

Claims of omnipotence are almost always false. This is likewise true when discussing supreme intelligence. And everybody knows nobody can be everywhere. 

And then there is God. He is all-powerful. He is all-knowing. He is everywhere. We have never been anywhere he is not, thought something he has not considered, or done something so pure and good he hasn’t done it first, and better. 

We need this acknowledgment and understanding from verse 32 before we get to verse 33. Verse 33 gets stitched on throw pillows and framed on walls. People share this verse on social media. Preachers preach it. Sunday School teachers teach it. Disciples claim it. 

However, it all sounds like nonsense if there is no Triple Omni reality behind it. How in the world could God say, “Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and incomprehensible things you do not know” if he wasn’t all-knowing, all-powerful, and immediately available? 

Before we claim verse 33, we better understand God, his nature, and how he chooses to relate to us. Here’s a hint: It’s all good.

His power is demonstrated by creating the earth, the skies, and all the heavenly bodies. Clouds are his handiwork. Sunrise and sunset? Some of his best work, and daily repeated. 

Interlude: Have you noticed how many more sunset photos there are than sunrises? I love sunsets. Morning shadows in the summertime, however, soothe my soul.

God’s wisdom is demonstrated in simple things like the rotation of the earth and its tilt. Speed up or slow down that rotation, my Science Teacher daughter will tell you, and we will start whirling off into space, freeze, or burn up, or something else she knows that I do not. 

There’s more where that came from. Remember the end of the Book of Job? God knows a lot more than we do now or ever will. Artificial Intelligence, meet All Intelligence. Be sure to take a knee. 

God’s presence comes down to this truth: We have never been where God is not. We are never beyond his reach. We are never out of his care.

Now we are ready for verse 33. Listen to it. Say it aloud. Pray it aloud. Commit it to memory. Practice it daily. Let its reality and wonder shape your life. If you are a glove, God is the hand who fills it, animates it, and uses it to bless the whole world. 

And now we are out of time for today. Before we go, scribble these verses on an index card. Place verse 32 on one side and verse 33 on the other. Live both sides of this perfect truth.

I will know God for who he is and pray to him in answer to his kind invitation.

Our Father, you are all-powerful. You are all-knowing. You are everywhere. Most wonderfully, you are the definition of LOVE. You invite us to think your thoughts. You invite us to know your wisdom. You are always ready and available for our questions, concerns, complaints, praise, and thanksgiving. You alone are God. You are our Father in Heaven. The better we know you, the more we hallow your will and your ways, your presence, and your purpose for us and for the whole world. Amen.
