The harvest is past...

October 22

Daily Bible Reading: Jeremiah 7 - 8

Verse of the Day: Jeremiah 8:20 – “The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved.”

In this section of Scripture, Jeremiah (the Weeping Prophet) mourns over the people of Israel. They had trusted in lying words and followed false religions. They were finding these worthless. In this immediate section around our verse, Jeremiah was faint at heart because the nation was so overwhelmingly helpless in their future.

He gives a parable about their condition in this verse. The time of fullness was meager; the time of reaping was past. When barns should be full, there was emptiness. This was a statement on their lives. Consider today, how is your life in relation to Jesus? Are you truly full – or sadly empty. Don’t stop till you make it right today.

Prayer: Jesus, I have so lived that my harvest is meager. Change my heart and life to give me the fullness that only You can give. Amen.
