 Daily Reading – Jeremiah 38-41 / Hebrews 3

GOD SAID:

Jeremiah 39:15 Now the word of the LORD came unto Jeremiah, while he was shut up in the court of the prison, saying,


GETTING INTO GOD’S WORD:

      Where are you, when you hear from God? Some would say Church, Sunday School, Worship Services, or at Wednesday service. Others might say, He speaks to me during my quiet time and daily devotions. As they read the Bible, God uses His written Word to speak to their heart. What a wonderful truth this is. Most people would not say in jail. In a place made to house sinners and lawbreakers. Yet that’s where He spoke to Jeremiah. In fact, God spoke to several people while in prisons. It may seem an unlikely place, but the truth is God speaks to us, by the Holy Spirit and the Word of God we’ve studied previously, in all sorts of places. Often in our own emotional or spiritual prisons which we have created.

● In our prison of “I want it my way,” Jesus says, “whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.”

● In a prison of despair, we hear the voice of God say, “I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”

● In the prison of sin, that seems unforgivable or irreversible, God says; “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

● When in the prison of weariness, we hear Him call; “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”


GETTING GOD’S WORD INTO ME:

    Why do we not hear God speak? Often we shut Him out or stay too busy for God. In the most unlikely places, we hear God say, “Peace be still.” Take time today to listen. Hear it? He just said I love you.


Do you have a quiet time where God can speak to your soul?

 Daily Jeremiah 35-37 / Hebrews 1-2

GOD SAID:

Jeremiah 36:26 But the king commanded Jerahmeel the son of Hammelech, and Seraiah the son of Azriel, and Shelemiah the son of Abdeel, to take Baruch the scribe and Jeremiah the prophet: but the LORD hid them.


GETTING INTO GOD’S WORD:

      The convicting Word of God has, through the ages, caused men to do some rather horrible things. You might think that it would be enough to try and destroy the written word itself. This has been attempted by many over the centuries. It was so here in Jeremiah 36:23 where it says the king; “…he cut it with the penknife, and cast it into the fire that was on the hearth, until all the roll was consumed in the fire that was on the hearth.” Men have tried in various ways to destroy the word of God. Yet, as it says in Psalm 12:6-7 “The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.” God preserves His word.

      Not only did they try to destroy the word of God, they also tried to imprison or worse, the men who spoke the word of God. In Jeremiah 36:19 the princes told Baruch, the scribe who wrote down the words, and Jeremiah, the prophet that declared the words of God, to go into hiding. Later, when the king commanded that they be found it says in today’s verse, “but the LORD hid them.” Again, throughout history man has been offended by the word of God and not only tried to destroy the word, but those who have delivered it as well. Yet, God’s word is still here and still just as powerful as ever. And, so is God.


GETTING GOD’S WORD INTO ME:

    I like David’s attitude about the entire matter. In Psalm 118:6 he said; “The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?” The worse thing man can do to us, sends us to heaven to dwell with the Lord forever.


Don’t you think God might have a say in that too?

 Daily Reading – Jeremiah 32-34 / Philemon

GOD SAID:

Jeremiah 32:27 Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?


GETTING INTO GOD’S WORD:

      Some days it may feel as though the weight of the whole world falls on your shoulders. Problems seem to arise at every turn. Family situations happen one after another. Friends appear to turn a deaf ear to your situations. Pressures from work and co-workers grow day after day. It may look as if there is no way out. Yet God says there is. As our never changing God spoke these words to Jeremiah, you might want to bend an ear to what they say to us even today.

      Is there anything too hard for God, anything? Could the God who created such a complex and wonderful creation as you, also handle your daily cares? YES! Might this God, who created heaven and earth and keeps it all working, also handle your pressures ? YES! Is the God who defeated Satan and his demons at Calvary, and destroyed the yoke of sin forever, able to help you deal with your family matters? Again, it’s YES!

      Jeremiah understood this. Our verse today is a confirmation from God of what Jeremiah had said back in verse 17 when he said; “… and there is nothing too hard for thee:” God responds to Jeremiah’s statement with; “Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?” The answer… NOTHING! When the world seems to surround you as a tomb, go to the LORD who conquered the tomb. My friend, in Him, there is HOPE!


GETTING GOD’S WORD INTO ME:

    Jesus said it best in John 10:10 when He said; “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”


Have you found that real HOPE in life through Jesus?

November 2 & 3, 2019 – Special Kind Of Love

Special Kind Of Love

November 2 & 3
November 2 – Jeremiah 30-31 / Titus 2-3
November 3 – NO Daily Reading

GOD SAID:

Jeremiah 31:3 The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.

GETTING INTO GOD’S WORD:

   Society today has tossed the word love around to the point, that for many, it means very little. We love our food, our money, our homes, our cars, and our jobs. Yet ask yourself, do any of those things love us back? The answer would be no, as none of those things have the ability to show any emotion. Sadly, this is the kind of love that many show one another as well. On social media pages we show approval with likes, or hearts on peoples posts. Often, we don’t know these people, or anything about them. It’s an emotionless click, with very little thought or care attached to it. Yet, some people on those social media sites, live for the likes and hearts they gather on those posts. Their happiness depends on how many of these emotionless, thoughtless, likes or hearts they might gain from people they often do not know. For many, love has become a meaningless click.

   God however does know you. He knows all about you. When God says, He loves you, it’s a special kind of love. In today’s verse, God told disobedient Israel, He loves them with an everlasting love. In 1 John 4:10 it says; ”Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.” God again shows us the same special kind of love. Even in our sinful state, He loves us enough to send His only Son, Jesus, to be the total payment for our sinfulness. This is a special kind of LOVE.

GETTING GOD’S WORD INTO ME:

   It only makes sense that we love a God who loves us like this. In 1 John 4:19 it says; “We love him, because he first loved us.“ The special relationship we have with God is based on a special love. It’s God’s Special love, implanted in our heart.


Do you know God’s Special LOVE?

THE WEEK IN REVIEW:

    Nothing has changed. Israel was called to put their faith in God. They did not, and it cost them. We too are still Saved By Faith in the person of Jesus Christ. This week we saw God working in:

● Satisfied By Thy Word
● Search Me, Try My Reins
● Surrender And Live
● Say What?
● Spiritually Discerned
● Special Kind Of Love

    Salvation has never been by works, we are today and always will be Saved By Faith.

 November 1
 Daily Reading – Jeremiah 26-29 / Titus 1

GOD SAID:

Jeremiah 29:8 For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Let not your prophets and your diviners, that be in the midst of you, deceive you, neither hearken to your dreams which ye cause to be dreamed.


GETTING INTO GOD’S WORD:

      There’s no shortage of religions. If you can dream a dream of what you want religion to be, there’s likely a group that will match your whims. Even if you desire no God, there’s an Atheist Church that believes there is no God. What they don’t understand is, that is a religion, and they do have a god. They’ve made themselves out to be their own god. In fact, anyone who is not following the word of God as God wrote it, well, they’ve also made themselves out to be their own god. Many today say the Bible is old and not meant for us, or it was simply stories told in old times. They’re discarding the God’s word as fiction, and instead following the desires of man.

      In today’s passage, God warns against following self proclaimed prophets. Those who say, “thus says the Lord,” when God has not spoken. People often want God to say this or that so they will twist or pervert God’s Word to fit their desires. God warned the church today in 1 Corinthians 2:13-14 of following man when it says; “Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” Following God’s Word, not man’s, is always best.


GETTING GOD’S WORD INTO ME:

    I need to know what God says when I read His Word. Not what I want it to say. Every morning I pray Ps. 119:18 which says; “Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.” I need Spiritual Discernment every day.


Should you pray that prayer today?

Say What?

 October 31
 Daily Reading – Jeremiah 23-25 / 2 Timothy 3-4

GOD SAID:

Jeremiah 25:4 And the LORD hath sent unto you all his servants the prophets, rising early and sending them; but ye have not hearkened, nor inclined your ear to hear.


GETTING INTO GOD’S WORD:

      One morning when I was reading the paper I remember seeing a cartoon. In the first frame there was a little boy standing with his fingers in his ears and from his mouth came the words “la la la, la la la Hum Hum La la la.” Standing next to him was a father reading off a list of all the chores he expected him to do that day. In the second frame, the father is looking at the boy and the boy is looking back at the father. The father says, “Did you hear what I said?” The boy looks at his father, with a false puzzled look and says, “What?” The next frame is the same as the first, with the boy back making noise with his fingers in his ears and father reading the list. The forth frame was the father asking again, “Did you hear me?” and the boy saying, “What?” And so it goes.

      In today’s world with such busy lives, many times we may treat God this same way. From the beginning of time, God has told us of a Saviour, Jesus Christ. He has shared with us how to live to receive the most blessings from this life and the life to come. However, like the young boy in the cartoon, we are so busy making as much noise as we can with our lives and entertainment that we have shut out the wisdom being given to us by God. He keeps telling us, but are we really listening? Let’s not be hearers of the word only, but doers also. Its time for us to listen to what God has to say, and obey.


GETTING GOD’S WORD INTO ME:

    My friend, when we stand before God at life’s end and He asks, “Did you hear what I said?” we had better have the right answer. At that moment with God, if we have the wrong answer, the final frame of the cartoon will not be good one.


What will you say when you stand before God?

October 30, 2019 – Surrender And Live

Surrender And Live

 October 30
 Daily Reading – Jeremiah 20-22 / 2 Timothy 1-2

GOD SAID:

Jeremiah 21:8 And unto this people thou shalt say, Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I set before you the way of life, and the way of death.


GETTING INTO GOD’S WORD:

      Here’s a dilemma for the house of Judah. In Jeremiah 21:8 Jeremiah is told; “And unto this people thou shalt say, Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I set before you the way of life, and the way of death.” God is telling them how to live. You would think, anyone who heard this would choose to live. However, in the next verse God lays out the choice they will have to make. Jeremiah 21:9 says; “He that abideth in this city shall die by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence: but he that goeth out, and falleth to the Chaldeans that besiege you, he shall live, and his life shall be unto him for a prey.” If you want to live, then you have to surrender. If you do not surrender, if you stay where you are, clinging to all your earthly things, well, then you will die in this city. It’s simple right? Surrender, and LIVE!

      It is basically the same choice that people struggle with today. If you want to have eternal life, well, then surrender your life to Christ. In Mark 8:35-37 it says; “For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it. For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” It’s simple right? If you want to live, I mean really live eternally, surrender and LIVE!


GETTING GOD’S WORD INTO ME:

    Sadly, many are tied to earthly things, just as some who stayed behind in Jeremiah’s day, and they died. God has set before us the way of LIFE. Jesus said in John 14:6 “…I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”


Have you surrendered?
