Monday Mornings with Jeremiah ~Week 5

Yes I know this post is a little late, I’m sorry! But better late then never right? I’m going to change up the way I make this post a little and if you like this new way over the other way please let me know!

  So today we are in Jeremiah Chapter 5. If you have your Bible go ahead and read the whole chapter. If you don’t have your Bible handy here are some links for you!
Jeremiah 5 NKJV
Jeremiah 5 KJV
Jeremiah 5 NIV
Jeremiah 5 MSG
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
  Its seems as if there is an argument going on here. God keeps telling Jeremiah all the evil things His people are up to and asking him “Shall I not punish them for these things?” I feel that Jeremiah is looking for a way to save the people without God destroying them or hurting them. Jeremiah at this point seems to have a very compassionate heart but God is upset at His people. The people who He made, He fed, He Provided for. Now they turn to false gods, they seek only pleasure for themselves putting away all thought of what is right. Do you find yourself thinking only of your “needs” instead of what Gods “needs” and calling for your life is? I think we all do this from time to time. Its hard to stay on track if your not in Gods word.  In verse 13 it says “…For the word is not in them.” Take a little time today to really look at yourself and how much time your giving back to God.

 Verse 14 says, Therefore thus says the Lord God of hosts, “Because you speak this word, Behold, I will make My words in your mouth fire, And this people wood, and it shall devour them.
Then in Verse 18, “Nevertheless in those days” says the Lord, “I will not make a complete end of you”. Jump to Verse 25, “Your iniquities have turned these things away, And your sins have withheld good from you. And last let look at verse 30-31, ““An astonishing and horrible thing
Has been committed in the land:
31 The prophets prophesy falsely,
And the priests rule by their own power;
And My people love to have it so.
But what will you do in the end?”

What will you do in the end?

Memory Verse Week 5

  Jeremiah 5:31
 The prophets prophesy falsely,
And the priests rule by their own power;
And My people love to have it so.
But what will you do in the end?”
