Daily Bible Reading: Jeremiah 11 - 13
Verse of the Day: Jeremiah 13:16 – “Give glory to Jehovah your God, before he cause darkness, and before your feet stumble upon the dark mountains, and, while ye look for light, he turn it into the shadow of death, and make it gross darkness.”
To give glory to God means to exalt and worship Him. Jeremiah is reminding us of the results of not doing this. Four Hebrew synonyms for darkness are found in this verse.
We are called to be devoted and committed to Him and Him alone. We should be so devoted that we just can’t get enough of Him. God does not want us to be divided in our loyalties – He wants our all.
Prayer: Glorious and Holy God of all Creation, You call for our all, our devotion, our commitment to You and You alone. Father, I come today confessing that I have tried to straddle the fence with the world and You. I cannot continue in this mode – I am making a decision to be Yours alone. Fill me. Amen.
