August 17 - Jeremiah 35-37

Below are my thoughts from the daily Bible reading of the West Side Church of Christ. Today’s reading comes from Jeremiah 35-37. Before reading I invite you to pray and asked God to speak to you as you read his word. Also above in the tabs is a link to the Bible reading plan.

When God has a message to bring to His people we cannot thwart it. The scroll Jeremiah had originally dictated to his secretary was destroyed by King Jehoikim. God again inspired Jeremiah to dictate every word again plus many more on a new scroll. When God wants a message out, He will get it out. Regardless if we run like Jonah. Regardless if we ignore it like many in Jerusalem did. Regardless if we destroy it like King Jehoikim.

Examine your life and heart. Is there something God wants you doing that you are avoiding? Is there a message you need to share that you are simply not? Is there someone you need to tell about Jesus to? What is holding you back? God has the strength and power to win, so give and rely on Him to bring you through.
