JeremiahI'm struggling a bit here, yet when I've pushed myself to get on with it - I've been so blessed!
Today's a good example!
Listen to this
Although they fast, I will not listen to their cry; though they offer burnt offerings and grain offerings, I will not accept them. Instead, I will destroy them with the sword, famine and plague."What's encouraging about that?- you may well ask! On its own, nothing at all!
But listen to this
If you repent, I will restore you
that you may serve Me. (Jer 15:19)
That's said to Jeremiah, but it's also said to us. It's a blessing and an encouragement to press in. And on this the first day of lent, it's especially wonderful!
