PRAYING FOR FAMILY, FRIENDS, CHURCH AND NATION
Walk in humble acknowledgment of God‘s sovereign Grace and holiness (Jer 14:1–10).
MORNING WATCH NOTES:
Here we see God sending a drought on Judah for her rejection of him. This should not have been a surprise. God warned them (Deu 28:22-24) this would happen if they turned their backs on him. The drought was devastating the city, the farmers and the livestock. Nobles, who never seem to be without, send servants for water. They returned with empty pitchers because the cisterns are empty.
The people had rejected the Living Water for false empty cisterns (2:13); false gods who offer no life-giving water. Their grief and crying is not for sin but for their own personal comfort. God will not answer. Lord, your warnings are clear. May we pay heed to the signs of judgment. May we acknowledge you as sovereign and humbly repent, while we still can.
