PRAYING FOR FAMILY, FRIENDS, CHURCH AND NATION
Express genuine mourning over our sin (Jer 14:7–10). #SincereRepentance #UnqualifiedRepentance
MORNING WATCH NOTES:
So, what is wrong with the apparent repentance of Judah, that God would not withhold his judgment? Well, the people seem to be blaming God for their troubles. In verse (v7) they say, “OK God we’re caught – yes, we have a habit of sin.“ Then, in vv8,9, they essentially blame God for their woes.
They say, “God, you act like you don’t know us. Are you confused? Are you helpless to save?“ Then, they tell God, “We are known as your people, you can’t abandon us now!“ Really? You see, “Sorry“ only works so many times. Insincerity is the height of indifference. Only a genuine morning for sin will bring a merciful God back to the table. Lord, may this old sentry know a genuine mourning for sin. May my beloved country know such mourning.
