Daily Bible Reading: Jeremiah 20 - 22
Verse of the Day: Jeremiah 20:8 – “For as often as I speak, I cry out; I cry, Violence and destruction! because the word of Jehovah is made a reproach unto me, and a derision, all the day.”
The Hebrew word dâbâr comes from a verb that means “to speak.” It carries the meaning of the words or thing that was spoken. Sometimes they will use it to refer to the content or idea of what is said and will be translated matter or business. When used by the prophets (the word of the LORD), it points to the message as coming from God. Jeremiah uses this phrase more than any prophet in the Bible. He is conveying the authority of the message he is proclaiming to the people.
Prayer: Jesus, in the New Testament You are called the “Logos” or Word of God. You carry all authority and power; You lived and proclaimed the whole message of God. We bow before You today. May Your Honor and Majesty bless us in our lives. Amen.
