Just one example. You can think of others. Does God want to save all men? Yes, we do. God desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. Well, then pray for your lost family members and friends and government officials as if God wants to save them – because he does!

Great help & insight. Thank you. These times. Our Day-is getting perilous. As a child to his father; we must turn to the our father. This verse is transforming my life & soul. Share it. Reach out to others. The majesty & beauty of the Lord I’d real & free. He stands at the door 🚪 & knocks.
I’ve always thought this particular verse meant God would give us wisdom to understand His word and learn through it, not saying He would give us great things we ask for ourselves. It’s such a powerful verse though.
In Jeremiah 33:3, what is that hidden thing which Jeremiah didn’t know but can be known through the help of God?
John Gill, the early particular Baptist identified these hidden things as not the “destruction of Jerusalem, and the seventy years’ captivity, and return from that … but spiritual blessings hereafter mentioned, some of which the deliverance from Babylon were typical of”. So, we need to keep reading in the chapter to find these things.
Does this hidden thing has anything to do with 1st Corinthians 2: 6-10?
I think you’re on the right track! 🙂
This is my favorite Scripture,the Spirit led me to this Scripture when a love one was sick and I called upon the Lord and he answered.
