Jeremiah 34
Passage Lookup

Jerusalem was under siege so the king tried to get right with God by making an agreement with the people to free the slaves. The slaves were freed but the promise was later broken. One characteristic of God is that He can’t be tricked or cheated.

A person’s character is who they really are; God knows all about each individual. He desires people with character, with principle; those who take stands on important issues that affect the future. One man of character that God used in our nation was Dwight D. Eisenhower. He once said “Though force can protect in emergency, only justice, fairness, consideration and cooperation can finally lead men to the dawn of eternal peace”.

For us today, our peace comes from knowing Jesus Christ as personal Savior. Fortunately for us, Jesus paid the price and freed us for all sins past and future. Today, I’m thankful in prayer because I fall short. I need help in knowing what to do. Today, I’m making a promise to daily remind myself of this eternal peace and freedom God gives. I’m asking God for help in keeping promises and being a person of integrity.
