Daily Bible Reading: Jeremiah 38 - 39
Verse of the Day: Jeremiah 39:1 – “And it came to pass when Jerusalem was taken, (in the ninth year of Zedekiah king of Judah, in the tenth month, came Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon and all his army against Jerusalem, and besieged it;”
In today’s reading, we learn about the way that Jerusalem was attacked. It was just as Jeremiah had warned. They had disobeyed, ignored, and finally had to face the consequences.
It is not a popular thought today that God is not only a loving God, but in His Righteousness, He is also a Judge. He will forgive, but He will also allow the consequences from our actions to follow us. We can be restored to Him, but this does not mean that the outcome will be exactly like we think it should be.
Prayer: Righteous Judge of all, open my eyes to where I am in disobedience to You, and may I turn back, seek You, and obey. Amen.
