If you have children, you may have experienced a time when they are crying and upset and can’t really express what is bothering them. After trying everything, they finally open up and share with you. Do you remember how good it felt to listen and help?
Let’s look at Jeremiah 29:12 again, “Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.” What a beautiful picture. Hearing, understanding, and giving undivided attention are all implied in the original Hebrew. Can you imagine the Almighty God loving and caring for us that much? Follow His advice. When looking for your purpose Call upon Him, Come to Him, Pray to Him. He will listen and if you listen you may hear His voice calling to you.
