Successful Living - 7

It is God's will for us to live a victorious lifestyle during our time on the earth.

Therefore, I need to fall out of agreement
with this tail attitude:

Don't tell me that!
I don't want to know anything about what you're saying.
And in any case that could never be true!
This kept back: People in Jeremiah's day.


Jeremiah 26
1 This message came to Jeremiah from the Lord during the first year of the reign of Jehoiakim (son of Josiah), king of Judah:
2 "Stand out in front of the Temple of the Lord and make an announcement to all the people who have come there to worship from many parts of Judah. Give them the entire message; don't leave out one word of all I have for them to hear.
3 For perhaps they will listen and turn from their evil ways, and then I can withhold all the punishment I am ready to pour out upon them because of their evil deeds.

4 Tell them the Lord says: 'If you will not listen to me and obey the laws I have given you,
5 and if you will not listen to my servants, the prophets - for I sent them again and again to warn you, but you would not listen to them -
6 then I will destroy this Temple as I destroyed the Tabernacle at Shiloh, and I will make Jerusalem a curse word in every nation of the earth.' "

7 - 8 When Jeremiah had finished his message, saying everything the Lord had told him to, the priests and false prophets and all the people in the Temple mobbed him, shouting,
"Kill him!   Kill him!
9 What right do you have to say the Lord will destroy this Temple like the one at Shiloh?" they yelled.
"What do you mean - Jerusalem destroyed and not one survivor?"

10 When the high officials of Judah heard what was going on, they rushed over from the palace and sat down at the door of the Temple to hold court.
11 Then the priests and the false prophets presented their accusations to the officials and the people.
"This man should die!" they said. "You have heard with your own ears what a traitor he is, for he has prophesied against this city."
12 Then Jeremiah spoke in his defense.
"The Lord sent me," he said, "to prophesy against this Temple and this city. He gave me every word of all that I have spoken. . .
(The Living Bible, Tyndale House Publishers)

  I can get out of this attitude
by confessing
that I often hide my head in the sand
and I love to live in denial and I really don't want to hear the truth.
Ask God to help you love the truth
- His name is Jesus Christ


See you tomorrow, God willing,
for another meditation on God's Word!
Be blessed as you pursue Him today!





Psalm 27:4

The one thing I desire of You, Lord,
the thing I seek most of all,
is the privilege of meditating
in Your Temple,
living in Your presence
every day of my life,
delighting in Your incomparable perfections and glory.

The Point!
