The King of Judah didn’t take God’s warnings seriously. He refused to listen to God’s counsel and burned Jeremiah’s scroll.
Today’s Word from God is a lesson on the need to listen, think, heed warnings, and work at transforming character to break the chains of a difficult past in order to be free to chart a new course for a brighter future. It’s a lesson on choosing to be molded by God, seeking freedom, and having a fulfilling life through Jesus. We should ask in prayer each day for help in making good decisions and for the strength to lead those we love in the right direction.
One song I’m reminded of when reading this passage is “Lead Me” by Sanctus Real. Here is a video link if you would like to take a look: Lead Me – Sanctus Real. List any videos you are reminded of as you read this passage.
My hope is that you will be moved by this lesson today and that it inspires you as you spend this day with God. In prayer time today, share with God any needs or concerns and set some time aside to listen to God.
