“Therefore thus says the LORD: “If you return, I will restore you, and you shall stand before me. If you utter what is precious, and not what is worthless, you shall be as my mouth. They shall turn to you, but you shall not turn to them.” Jeremiah 15:19 -> me: Passage today was Jeremiah 15:10-22. All I can say is wow! I spent a good portion of the day dwelling on and then writing up a whole devotional focused on verses 19-22. Sooooo good! I will post that devotional once I can get it transcribed from my notebook. 🙂 My main takeaway from today was that God reaffirms His call on Jeremiah’s life. Jeremiah laments about his fear of God leaving him but God brings him comfort; not by solving his problems but by reiterating His calling and protection over him. God reminds Jeremiah that He will not leave Jeremiah’s side. When you have a calling on your life by the One True God (we all do if we are genuine believers), we have God’s promise that He is right there with us. He may not solve our problems or get us out of the sticky situation we are in, but He does promise to give us the strength to persevere to the end.
