Jeremiah 2

Moreover the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

Go and cry in the ears of Jerusalem, saying, Thus saith the Lord; I remember thee, the kindness of thy youth, the love of thine espousals, when thou wentest after me in the wilderness, in a land that was not sown.

Israel was holiness unto the Lord, and the firstfruits of his increase: all that devour him shall offend; evil shall come upon them, saith the Lord.

Hear ye the word of the Lord, O house of Jacob, and all the families of the house of Israel:

Thus saith the Lord, What iniquity have your fathers found in me, that they are gone far from me, and have walked after vanity, and are become vain?

Neither said they, Where is the Lordthat brought us up out of the land of Egypt, that led us through the wilderness, through a land of deserts and of pits, through a land of drought, and of the shadow of death, through a land that no man passed through, and where no man dwelt?

And I brought you into a plentiful country, to eat the fruit thereof and the goodness thereof; but when ye entered, ye defiled my land, and made mine heritage an abomination.

The priests said not, Where is the Lord? and they that handle the law knew me not: the pastors also transgressed against me, and the prophets prophesied by Baal, and walked after things that do not profit.

Wherefore I will yet plead with you, saith the Lord, and with your children’s children will I plead.

10 For pass over the isles of Chittim, and see; and send unto Kedar, and consider diligently, and see if there be such a thing.

11 Hath a nation changed their gods, which are yet no gods? but my people have changed their glory for that which doth not profit.

12 Be astonished, O ye heavens, at this, and be horribly afraid, be ye very desolate, saith the Lord.

13 For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water.

14 Is Israel a servant? is he a homeborn slave? why is he spoiled?

15 The young lions roared upon him, and yelled, and they made his land waste: his cities are burned without inhabitant.

16 Also the children of Noph and Tahapanes have broken the crown of thy head.

17 Hast thou not procured this unto thyself, in that thou hast forsaken the Lord thy God, when he led thee by the way?

18 And now what hast thou to do in the way of Egypt, to drink the waters of Sihor? or what hast thou to do in the way of Assyria, to drink the waters of the river?

19 Thine own wickedness shall correct thee, and thy backslidings shall reprove thee: know therefore and see that it is an evil thing and bitter, that thou hast forsaken the Lord thy God, and that my fear is not in thee, saith the Lord God of hosts.

20 For of old time I have broken thy yoke, and burst thy bands; and thou saidst, I will not transgress; when upon every high hill and under every green tree thou wanderest, playing the harlot.

21 Yet I had planted thee a noble vine, wholly a right seed: how then art thou turned into the degenerate plant of a strange vine unto me?

22 For though thou wash thee with nitre, and take thee much soap, yet thine iniquity is marked before me, saith the Lord God.

23 How canst thou say, I am not polluted, I have not gone after Baalim? see thy way in the valley, know what thou hast done: thou art a swift dromedary traversing her ways;

24 A wild ass used to the wilderness, that snuffeth up the wind at her pleasure; in her occasion who can turn her away? all they that seek her will not weary themselves; in her month they shall find her.

25 Withhold thy foot from being unshod, and thy throat from thirst: but thou saidst, There is no hope: no; for I have loved strangers, and after them will I go.

26 As the thief is ashamed when he is found, so is the house of Israel ashamed; they, their kings, their princes, and their priests, and their prophets.

27 Saying to a stock, Thou art my father; and to a stone, Thou hast brought me forth: for they have turned their back unto me, and not their face: but in the time of their trouble they will say, Arise, and save us.

28 But where are thy gods that thou hast made thee? let them arise, if they can save thee in the time of thy trouble: for according to the number of thy cities are thy gods, O Judah.

29 Wherefore will ye plead with me? ye all have transgressed against me, saith the Lord.

30 In vain have I smitten your children; they received no correction: your own sword hath devoured your prophets, like a destroying lion.

31 O generation, see ye the word of the Lord. Have I been a wilderness unto Israel? a land of darkness? wherefore say my people, We are lords; we will come no more unto thee?

32 Can a maid forget her ornaments, or a bride her attire? yet my people have forgotten me days without number.

33 Why trimmest thou thy way to seek love? therefore hast thou also taught the wicked ones thy ways.

34 Also in thy skirts is found the blood of the souls of the poor innocents: I have not found it by secret search, but upon all these.

35 Yet thou sayest, Because I am innocent, surely his anger shall turn from me. Behold, I will plead with thee, because thou sayest, I have not sinned.

36 Why gaddest thou about so much to change thy way? thou also shalt be ashamed of Egypt, as thou wast ashamed of Assyria.

37 Yea, thou shalt go forth from him, and thine hands upon thine head: for the Lordhath rejected thy confidences, and thou shalt not prosper in them.

  1. Thank you Jesus for today –

    Your wickedness will bring its own punishment. Your turning from me will shame you. You will see what an evil, bitter thing it is to abandon the Lord your God and not to fear him. I, the Lord, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, have spoken!

  2. Jeremiah 2:20
    Long ago I broke the yoke that oppressed you and tore away the chains of your slavery, but still you said, ‘I will not serve you.’ On every hill and under every green tree, you have prostituted yourselves by bowing down to idols.

    Chain Breaker
    Song by Zach Williams

    If you’ve been walking the same old road for miles and miles
    If you’ve been hearing the same old voice tell the same old lies
    If you’re trying to fill the same old holes inside
    There’s a better life
    There’s a better life

    If you’ve got pain
    He’s a pain taker
    If you feel lost
    He’s a way maker
    If you need freedom or saving
    He’s a prison-shaking Savior
    If you’ve got chains
    He’s a chain breaker

    We’ve all search for the light of day in the dead of night
    We’ve all found ourselves worn out from the same old fight
    We’ve all run to things we know just ain’t right
    And there’s a better life
    There’s a better life

    If you’ve got pain
    He’s a pain taker
    If you feel lost
    He’s a way maker
    If you need freedom or saving
    He’s a prison-shaking Savior
    If you’ve got chains
    He’s a chain breaker

    If you believe it
    If you receive it
    If you can feel it
    Somebody testify

    If you believe it
    If you receive it
    If you can feel it
    Somebody testify, testify

    If you believe it
    If you receive it
    If you can feel it
    Somebody testify

    If you’ve got pain
    He’s a pain taker
    If you feel lost
    He’s a way maker
    If you need freedom or saving
    He’s a prison-shaking Savior
    If you’ve got chains
    He’s a chain breaker

    Oh, if you need freedom or saving
    He’s a prison-shaking Savior
    If you’ve got chains
    He’s a chain breaker

    Thank you Jesus

  3. 19 Thine own wickedness shall correct thee, and thy backslidings shall reprove thee: know therefore and see that it is an evil thing and bitter, that thou hast forsaken the Lord thy God, and that my fear is not in thee, saith the Lord God of hosts.

    Well this world has become rampant with delusions and lies we know and put our faith and trust that God will see this to the end. Those that have forsaken God and all of his glory will either have had the chance to repent and turn or they will see the judgment. It’s in unfortunate part of life but you can practically hear God pleading with his people to come back to him. He is tried every other method to get their attention and now they continue to serve their own gods and are in denial

  4. “For my people have done two evil things: They have abandoned me— the fountain of living water. And they have dug for themselves cracked cisterns that can hold no water at all!
    Jeremiah 2:13 NLT

    https://bible.com/bible/116/jer.2.13.NLT

    We try to do things ourselves and it falls through or only satisfies the natural world. This explains why! Our cisterns are cracked! Cannot hold water!

    Jesus we thirst for You today Lord!!

  5. 30 In vain have I smitten your children; they received no correction: your own sword hath devoured your prophets, like a destroying lion.

    31 O generation, see ye the word of the Lord. Have I been a wilderness unto Israel? a land of darkness? wherefore say my people, We are lords; we will come no more unto thee?

    32 Can a maid forget her ornaments, or a bride her attire? yet my people have forgotten me days without number.

    33 Why trimmest thou thy way to seek love? therefore hast thou also taught the wicked ones thy ways.

    This is why as parents it’s important to correct the children because if there is no corrections they will learn that being wicked it’s okay when it isn’t. Leaves the children to do whatever they want with no limits and no boundaries which is pretty dangerous. When we correct them they will understand as they get older and grasp The Word Of God they were being corrected as God wants us to be righteous and holy.
    Thank You Jesus!! Hallelujah!!

  6. 13 NLT “For my people have done two evil things: They have abandoned me— the fountain of living water. And they have dug for themselves cracked cisterns that can hold no water at all!
    God gave us free will to choose life or death. The fountain of living water which is an unlimited supply of life-giving substance or our own cracked cisterns that cannot even hold water. Make the right choice.

  7. 19. It is your wickedness that will punish you and your desertion of My ways that will convict you. See the evil and taste the bitterness of forsaking the one True God, the Eternal. At the core of this evil is the sad truth that you have forgotten the wonder and terror of who I am. So says the Eternal Lord, Commander of heavenly armies. Voice

    Once someone forgets the wonder and terror of who God is, it’s easier for them to start drifting away from Him. That’s why DAILY prayer and Word is so important- to keep God and His attributes fresh on our minds.

    Psalm 145:
    2. EVERY DAY will I bless thee; and I will praise thy name for ever and ever.

    3. Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.

    4. One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts.

    5. I will speak of the glorious honour of thy majesty, and of thy wondrous works.

    6. And men shall speak of the might of thy terrible acts: and I will declare thy greatness.

  8. Verses 18-19 MSG “And now, what do you think you’ll get by going off to Egypt? Maybe a cool drink of Nile River water? Or what do you think you’ll get by going off to Assyria? Maybe a long drink of Euphrates River water? Your evil ways will get you a sound thrashing, that’s what you’ll get. You’ll pay dearly for your disloyal ways. Take a long, hard look at what you’ve done and its bitter results. Was it worth it to have walked out on your God?” God’s Decree, Master God-of-the-Angel-Armies.” Another warning in this chapter to stay loyal and close to God as walking away has so many consequences as we see the end result in verse 35 MSG “And yet you have the nerve to say, ‘I’ve done nothing wrong. God doesn’t mind. He hasn’t punished me, has he?’ Don’t look now, but judgment’s on the way, aimed at you who say, ‘I’ve done nothing wrong.’ Once again we must heed the warnings and stay submitted as we LIVE-GIVE JESUS²

  9. Jeremiah 2
    9 Wherefore I will yet plead with you, saith the Lord, and with your children’s children will I plead.

    God is still calling out waiting for the return of His children . Why wait any longer when the Father is right there calling Come Home

  10. 6 Neither said they, Where is the Lordthat brought us up out of the land of Egypt, that led us through the wilderness, through a land of deserts and of pits, through a land of drought, and of the shadow of death, through a land that no man passed through, and where no man dwelt?

    7 And I brought you into a plentiful country, to eat the fruit thereof and the goodness thereof; but when ye entered, ye defiled my land, and made mine heritage an abomination.

    8 The priests said not, Where is the Lord? and they that handle the law knew me not: the pastors also transgressed against me, and the prophets prophesied by Baal, and walked after things that do not profit.

    Now the Lord asks why she has changed. The people priests, rulers, and prophets have forgotten all God did for them. Don’t ever forget where God brought you from and kept you from.

    A.L.M.A.S.

  11. You think it’s just a small thing, don’t you,
    to try out another sin-project when the first one fails?
    But Egypt will leave you in the lurch
    the same way that Assyria did.
    You’re going to walk away from there
    wringing your hands.
    I, God, have blacklisted those you trusted.You think it’s just a small thing, don’t you,
    to try out another sin-project when the first one fails?
    But Egypt will leave you in the lurch
    the same way that Assyria did.
    You’re going to walk away from there
    wringing your hands.
    I, God, have blacklisted those you
    You’ll get not a lick of help from them.

  12. Jeremiah 2:9 Wherefore I will yet plead with you, saith the Lord, and with your children’s children will I plead.

    Psalm 50:7 Hear, O my people, and I will speak; O Israel, and I will testify against thee: I am God, even thy God.

    Ezekiel 20:35,36 And I will bring you into the wilderness of the people, and there will I plead with you face to face. Like as I pleaded with your fathers in the wilderness of the land of Egypt, so will I plead with you, saith the Lord God.

    We must be faithful to God, seek him everyday! He’s waiting for us.

  13. Jeremiah 2:13, “For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living water, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water?”

    A cistern is used to store water. One commentary said, “Water that is stored in a cistern ceases to be living, it becomes STAGNANT (inactive, motionless, lifeless, foul).
    So the question is, “Why would we want to forsake (abandon, leave, turn our backs on, reject, etc…) the Fountain of Living Water that is good, fresh, and life-giving water, for water that has been sitting STAGNANT (motionless, lifeless) in a cistern?”

    JESUS is The FOUNTAIN Of LIVING WATER, and Today, we can drink of The FOUNTAIN Of LIVING WATER that is Good, Fresh, Life-Giving water and find REFRESHING for our souls.

    Thank You JESUS!!

  14. LIVE – GIVE JESUS2
    WHEN PRAISE IS DEAD

    28 But where are thy gods that thou hast made thee? let them arise, if they can save thee in the time of thy trouble: for according to the number of thy cities are thy gods, O Judah.

    Judah means Praise. The tribe or linage of Judah is known as the people of PRAISE. The LORD is now jealous and angry that as GOD he created man and man has created him other gods made from wood and stone that GOD made.

    The PRAISE intended for GOD is now offered to dead articles of wood and rock. Why is that people choose to praise things rather than PRAISE JESUS the GOD of Heaven and Earth? This is the question the asks through his prophet here.

    I believe the same question could be asked today. What do we worship. Daily do we lift up and exalt JESUS or entertainment and activities?

    Who is our god?

    The ONE we love to spend time with; that is who our God is. Sports, entertainment, work, friends, family, possessions, postions or JESUS.

    JESUS knows the thought and intent of the heart, HE knows when we WORSHIP HIM or HIS creation. JESUS is not our GOD if we can live a day without HIM. No PRAYER and no BIBLE means no RELATIIONSHIP. Choose JESUS today. Make JESUS our first and favored choice of attention. Spend time with JESUS today and grow our relationship with HIM.

  15. 19 Thine own wickedness shall correct thee, and thy backslidings shall reprove thee: know therefore and see that it is an evil thing and bitter, that thou hast forsaken the Lord thy God, and that my fear is not in thee, saith the Lord God of hosts.
    20 For of old time I have broken thy yoke, and burst thy bands; and thou saidst, I will not transgress; when upon every high hill and under every green tree thou wanderest, playing the harlot.

    We reap what we sow, whether we sow goodness or sow sin, it will come back to us one way or another. Choose this day whom you will serve-I choose to serve the Lord!

  16. “Hath a nation changed their gods, which are yet no gods? but my people have changed their glory for that which doth not profit.”
    ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭2:11‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    Our nation is divided by self will, idolatry, lawlessness, homosexuality, rebellion .etc. Looking for ‘something ‘ that will satisfy the flesh while the spirit of man desires the true living GOD! Let us not forget that GOD IS a jealous GOD. Our nation will reap the consequences of the power of ‘free will.’ A nation that has lost reverence for GOD and no longer has obeyed the word of GOD. Jesus forgive the sins of our nation today. That our hearts will turn back to you.

  17. 32 Can a maid forget her ornaments, or a bride her attire? yet my people have forgotten me days without number.

    33 Why trimmest thou thy way to seek love? therefore hast thou also taught the wicked ones thy ways.

    34 Also in thy skirts is found the blood of the souls of the poor innocents: I have not found it by secret search, but upon all these.

    When Israel got caught up in their fleshly ways, they forgot all that God had brought them through and had done for them. They went whoring after the carnal things of life and left the path where God met them.

    How much we are like Israel we go hard after things we want to please the flesh – bigger houses, nicer cars, better jobs that pay more, but take more of our time from the important things of life – JESUS, our families, serving the Kingdom and winning the lost. Those things that we don’t make important in our lives, will not be important in the lives of our children who are reading us like a book everyday, and in the lives of our grandchildren will be almost non existent.

    Because of our choices to chase after the things to appease this flesh, there are souls that are put in our path everyday that are missing out on what God has for them because we are too carnal to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with them.

    It’s time to awake out of our “please the flesh” mentality and become a living sacrifice holy, acceptable unto God, chasing after God has hard as we can..

  18. Jeremiah 2:9 ( amp) Therefore Will still contend with you [ by inflicting further judgemens on you], says the Lord, and with your children’s will I contend.
    10) For cross over to the coasts of Cyprus to the west and see; send also to Kedar to the east and carefully consider, and see whether there has been such a thing as this.
    God is waiting for his children to return to him.
    Come back to him and received your miracle and your healing.
    Why wait any longer!
    We need you Jesus.

  19. “Your wickedness will punish you; your backsliding will rebuke you. Consider then and realize how evil and bitter it is for you when you forsake the Lord your God and have no awe of me,” declares the Lord, the Lord Almighty.”
    ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭2:19‬ ‭NIV‬‬

    What’s done in the dark will come to the light. When you commit evil you will reap what you sow. No matter how hard you try to hide it, it will come to the light. You can run but you can’t hide. Your sin will eventually catch up to you.

  20. 36 how unstable you are, constantly Changing
    Your ways!
    You will be put to shame by Egypt
    Just as you were put to shame by Asyria.
    ——
    A plant will never take root if it’s constantly
    Being messed with, transplanting it here
    And there… it will never grow, it will never be strong.
    I believe it will be the same with out spiritual grow.
    Got to know the truth
    Got to be planted in the right place
    Got to make up my mind
    Got to be determined
    Got to grow and be fruitful
    As my soul prospers also.
    🙌🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏
    Hallelujah
    Blessed be the name of the Lord.

  21. 35 Yet thou sayest, Because I am innocent, surely his anger shall turn from me. Behold, I will plead with thee, because thou sayest, I have not sinned.

    The Christian journey is a walk, inwhich we may view our progress differently from how the Lord sees our commitment. We need to strive to please the Lord rather than our selves.

  22. iLove the Kingdom of Jesus2

    2 Go and cry in the ears of Jerusalem, saying, Thus saith the Lord; I remember thee, the kindness of thy youth, the love of thine espousals, when thou wentest after me in the wilderness, in a land that was not sown.

    This could be a message to all of us. We have to always remember our first love and we must always remember how we use to run and chase after God and never get complacent. Thank You Jesus!

  23. 26 As the thief is ashamed when he is found, so is the house of Israel ashamed; they, their kings, their princes, and their priests, and their prophets.
    27 Saying to a stock, Thou art my father; and to a stone, Thou hast brought me forth: for they have turned their back unto me, and not their face: but in the time of their trouble they will say, Arise, and save us.
    28 But where are thy gods that thou hast made thee? let them arise, if they can save thee in the time of thy trouble: for according to the number of thy cities are thy gods, O Judah.

    There is one God and we should worship him in Spirit and truth. He is the only way to Heaven.

  24. 31 O generation, see ye the word of the Lord. Have I been a wilderness unto Israel? a land of darkness? wherefore say my people, We are lords; we will come no more unto thee?

    God gives us so many opportunities to turn away from sin and anything else that distracts us from him. He’ll punish us and tries to get our attention, his love is unconditional just like we love our own children. I know God doesn’t give up on us he’s waiting on us to follow him and be righteous.

  25. 4 Hear ye the word of the Lord, O house of Jacob, and all the families of the house of Israel:

    Many claim to hear the words of God, but they are not truly hearing him. You can see by their actions that hearing God’s word is not a priority. God’s word should be the number one ne of the thing we’re listening to. Don’t forsake what God is saying.

  26. Jeremiah 2:19 NLT
    Your wickedness will bring its own punishment. Your turning from me will shame you. You will see what an evil, bitter thing it is to abandon the Lord your God and not to fear him. I, the Lord, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, have spoken!

    Sin always has a way to entangle you and when its done its job it leaves you with a mess to clean up. It acts like a friend at first and then leaves you with shame and guilt.
    We serve a merciful God and thanks to the blood that no matter what shame we have brought on our lives. No matter what wrong thing we have done His blood has washed it away and He stands with His arms wide open.

  27. A Bad Exchange

    11 Hath a nation changed their gods, which are yet no gods? but my people have changed their glory for that which doth not profit.

    Would we exchange our car for no return or charity donation to gain from or experience? Would you exchange your house for nothing?

    Why would we allow ourselves to exchange the promise and blessing of God for the lies of the enemy. Why would we exchange God for the Gaines of this life that will not profit our eternity? Let us be intentional in perusing God and doing His will

  28. “And you have brought this upon yourselves by rebelling against the Lord your God, even though he was leading you on the way!”
    ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭2:17‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    God has done so much for each of us, yet why do we still go back and sin against him, and keep doing it over and over again? God has always forgive us no matter what, it is time that we start changing our ways, and focus our all on God, and make him first no matter what. God is coming soon, so I pray that we start changing our ways and I pray that we stop disobeying and start obeying his every word for he does what’s best for us. It is time we make God first in our life!

  29. Jeremiah Chapter 2

    37 Yea, thou shalt go forth from him, and thine hands upon thine head: for the Lord hath rejected thy confidences, and thou shalt not prosper in them.
    Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Do I need to speak any more. The word is plain enough.

    Let us learn what the house of Israel has forgotten and receive and obtain eternal life as a pearl of great price that we may walk in it the rest of our lives.

  30. 7 And I brought you into a plentiful country, to eat the fruit thereof and the goodness thereof; but when ye entered, ye defiled my land, and made mine heritage an abomination.

    We must always be following His word first before everything. I pray tonight that God is and will always be first in your life!!!

  31. “No amount of soap or lye can make you clean. I still see the stain of your guilt. I, the Sovereign Lord, have spoken!”
    ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭2:22 NLT

    Thank You Jesus for Your blood. By His Blood we are cleansed. When we go down in His name, applying the Blood to our lives, He blots out every sin and we are no longer stained!

  32. 4 Hear ye the word of the Lord, O house of Jacob, and all the families of the house of Israel:

    Listen for God closely. Wait to hear a word from Him. Listen for His instruction through singing, preaching, prayer, and as conversations are made.

    8 The priests said not, Where is the Lord? and they that handle the law knew me not: the pastors also transgressed against me, and the prophets prophesied by Baal, and walked after things that do not profit.

  33. 11 Hath a nation changed their gods, which are yet no gods? but my people have changed their glory for that which doth not profit.

    Israel’s neighboring nations serve false gods according to their own beliefs. God called us to holiness, separated from this world serving only Him. Now, Jeremiah is sent to plead with the Lords people to turn back to God. All other false gods are worthless and cannot compare to our One true God. The prophet tries to spark their memory of who their God is and what he has done for them. It’s all to easy for a person to become so consumed in the world and it’s wayward thinking that people forget who really matters. Only when their is disaster do they remember God and that is what Jeremiah is trying to warn them is coming. When we move outside the covering or Will of God then we position ourselves as His enemies. We cannot forget what God has brought us through and the victories He’s has won for us. The blood he shed for us to be saved us too precious to turn away. He will not force us to do the right thing but he will warn us of coming doom. Making things right and turning back to God in repentance is what He is awaiting. He doesn’t want to see his people perish but have everlasting life. Living in sin leads to death but turning back to our first love Christ Jesus means life abundantly.

  34. 32 Can a maid forget her ornaments, or a bride her attire? yet my people have forgotten me days without number.

    Aside from the Lord we are nothing and cannot do anything. And some are fooled to think they can live without God. Many in recent times are living exactly as this scripture says forgetting the Lord for many days. Though time and time again the invitation to repent, Turn back to God, is handed out.

  35. ““Go and shout this message to Jerusalem. This is what the Lord says: “I remember how eager you were to please me as a young bride long ago, how you loved me and followed me even through the barren wilderness.”
    ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭2:2‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    Let’s think about new couples that are in the honeymoon stage with each other, everything is so new and shiny in your relationship you can’t help but to stare and or be around that person like all the time, you would do anything for them! But eventually that relationship loses its shininess and things become familiar, but that doesn’t mean the love isn’t there or that the passion is gone, it just means you have to make more of an effort to keeps the flames going. Just because your relationship with God isn’t new and shiny anymore doesn’t mean the flame isn’t there, it just means we need to make more of an effort to seek after him and to be a part of him all the time just like in our earthly relationships. Never stop falling in love with Jesus DAILY!

  36. 26“Israel is like a thief
    who feels shame only when he gets caught.
    They, their kings, officials, priests, and prophets—
    all are alike in this.
    27To an image carved from a piece of wood they say,
    ‘You are my father.’
    To an idol chiseled from a block of stone they say,
    ‘You are my mother.’
    They turn their backs on me,
    but in times of trouble they cry out to me,
    ‘Come and save us!’

    God i dont ever wanna catch myself living like this, placing other gods before you and living for them just because i’m more comfortable. I dont wanna call on your name just in times of distress or when I’m facing trials and tribulations.

    Its easy to catch yourself when you start doing this the first sign is when is the last time i called on Jesus just to talk. If you’ve only cried his name when it was convenient for you then you need to check yourself find an altar and ask for repentance

  37. “Go and shout this message to Jerusalem. This is what the Lord says: “I remember how eager you were to please me as a young bride long ago, how you loved me and followed me even through the barren wilderness. In those days Israel was holy to the Lord, the first of his children. All who harmed his people were declared guilty, and disaster fell on them. I, the Lord, have spoken!”
    Jeremiah 2:2‭-‬3 NLT

    Fall in love with Jesus, He is and should always be our first love. No other love could ever compare to the love of Jesus! His love saved us!

  38. Jeremiah 3

    11 And the Lord said unto me, The backsliding Israel hath justified herself more than treacherous Judah.

    12 Go and proclaim these words toward the north, and say, Return, thou backsliding Israel, saith the Lord; and I will not cause mine anger to fall upon you: for I am merciful, saith the Lord, and I will not keep anger for ever.

    I have known many people who have been backsliders but came back to our Lord Jesus Christ. There is always hope as He is merciful and forgiving. Never give up on our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
    Thank you Jesus for this day.
