Jeremiah 6-8, Romans 16
God is a god of peace and rest, but also a god who can crush Satan under his feet and bring righteous wrath upon a whole country. What an amazing God to have on our team, fighting for us and interceding on our behalf.
27to the only wise God be glory forevermore through Jesus Christ! Amen.
23But this command I gave them: ‘Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and you shall be my people. And walk in all the way that I command you, that it may be well with you.’
I love how even though the city is being condemned for doing wrong, the lord still says that with everything he is doing, he is bringing peace that will crush satan
In this passage in Jeremiah, Judah is particularly condemned for serving other gods and then coming before the One True God. May we also know that it is blasphemous to serve two masters. Oh Lord, help us not to seek to worship the world and then desire spirituality before You. You are God alone and the Lord Jesus is alone Master over our lives.
27 “I have made you an assayer and a tester among My people, That you may know and assay their way.”
Do I do this? Do I use the gift of right judgement, wisdom and knowledge given to me at my baptism to recognize the way of the lord in everyone I meet? Or do I give into flattery and affirmation too easily? Lord reaffirm in my spirit a wisdom to assay the ways of my self and mankind.
doing exactly what verse 16 says – looking to the Word for the examples of those who walked in the good way, the ancient paths of earlier prophets, and choose to walk in the same faith-driven obedience. That starts right here making time for the Lord and filling ourselves with truth each day (even if you’re a day behind like me!) to give us perspective for the circumstances the Lord has each of us in.
