PRAYING FOR FAMILY, FRIENDS, CHURCH AND NATION
Listen, heed God’s warnings and turn to him (Jer 11:1–5). #ListenHeedTurn #Repentance https://bible.com/bible/116/jer.11.1-5.NLT
MORNING WATCH NOTES:
This passage begins a fourth general prophecy/message dealing with Israel’s failure to keep covenant with God. Message #1 (2:1–3:5) revolved around Judah’s unfaithfulness to God; message #2 (3:6–6:30) is a summons to repent under king Josiah‘s godly reign; message #3 (7:1–10:25) exposed Judah’s false religion (confessing God with their lips but doing something entirely different).
Here, message #4 (11:1–12:17) focuses on Deuteronomy 28, where God explains the blessings of obedience to him and the consequences of disobeying him. The Takeaway for Judah then (and us today) is this. God gives man ample time, warning and instructions before acting in judgment. Lord, may I (my beloved nation) have the spiritual vision to see, understand and respond accordingly to you.
