“Thus says the Lord who made the earth, the Lord who formed it to establish it—the Lord is his name: Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known." -Jeremiah 33:2-3

There is great value in knowing that God desires conversation with us and that our relationship with him is not a monologue where we leave messages in hope that we're worthy of a call back. It is intimate conversation that makes any relationship worthwhile. Rather than sitting there watching God do His thing, or God from afar watching us do ours, we engage in a relationship filled with spiritual dialogue.

Life is about relationship; it's about conversation. A dialogue--not a monologue. It's a symphony of hearing and being heard in return, of loving and being loved. We learn and grow from each other. We support and serve each other. And if we model our relationships after God's, we find so much joy in each other that we rejoice and sing.

He may sing to you through Scripture. He may sing over you through the love of your family. He may sing over you with wisdom in a tricky situation.

It's a conversation that's never ending. It'll continue through all eternity. How many relationships can you say that about?

Whether God sings over us through a lullaby, revelation through Scripture, His faithfulness, His creation, or even a finite song, we may never know. But the fact is that He is engaging in a real conversation with His children. The God who is mighty to save us loves us so much that He's serenading our affection. He has gladly given you access--call Him, sing to Him, talk to Him; He wants to reveal Himself to you.
[from Glory Revealed, David Nasser]
