I love how Jerimiah 33:1-3 first states who God is. ‘He who made the earth, who formed it and established it. ‘
Only after this does Jerimiah say the promise of God. ‘ Call to me and I will answer you, and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’
Jerimiah doesn’t forget WHO God is, before declaring WHAT He will do.
It is so easy to treat God like a genie in a bottle who grants a wish and appears when you rub his lamp. We forget that God is awesome! In the true definition of the word. We forget that He IS the almighty, the I Am, master, king, creator of the universe. God is so much more than a wish granter, the only reason He pays attention to us is because He loves us. He doesn’t have to help us, He wants to. Let us not take advantage of God’s love and forget who God is in the process.

I am a young woman who grew up in British Columbia. In BC was all I ever wanted; I had my poodle (Max) and all my friends, Saturdays at the Vancouver Aquarium and Sunday afternoons at one of my favorite beaches it was paradise. But God had a different plan for my life and my dad's job landed us in Alberta and now where I remain, in small town Souris Manitoba. The transitions from paradise to prairie were difficult and I will admit that now 10 years later I still refer to home as Abbotsford BC. Through this crazy pathway trek across Canada I have had one true constant, God; and though none of it was easy, everything that has happened in my life has formed in me a true lasting friendship with the one I call Immanuel. Because no matter how far from home we are God is with us, and thanks to God I have found an almost completely over looked beauty in Manitoba. If you open your eyes you will see that God has planted wondrous things everywhere you go.
