They have lied about the Lord , And said, “ It is not He. Neither will evil come upon us, Nor shall we see sword or famine.And the prophets become wind, For the word is not in them. Thus shall it be done to them.” – Jeremiah 5:12-13
Prophecy can appear a bit frightening. It brings us face to face with how our misdeeds can lead to our own misery. It lets us know that the will of God comes forth no matter what we try to do to stop it or intervene.
Jeremiah shared candidly about the woes that would befall the people of God for their own disobedience and idolatry. Thus, God is not unaware of His people’s suffering, but He is focused on their repentance. He seeks them to turn their hearts toward Him once again.
Let yourself remain firmly planted in faith. Keep your head about you as things go awry. Do not lose your faith over circumstances that only God can change.
“Accept God’s will in every situation.” – Andrew Murray
