Daily D – Jeremiah 12:2

by | Aug 10, 2021 | Daily D | 0 comments

You planted them, and they have taken root. They have grown and produced fruit. You are ever on their lips, but far from their conscience.
JEREMIAH 12:2 (CSB)

—————————————————————————
 
They talk as if they’re old friends with you,
but they couldn’t care less about you.

(The Message)
 
Your name is on their lips,
but you are far from their hearts.

(New Living Translation)
 

A prominent politician said recently that God approves of his perspective on a particular hot-button issue. Another said God approves of her perspective. It is hard to determine where they got the idea that God has awakened to the political correctness of our day and changed his mind.

From Genesis to Revelation, God clearly states truth for all people in all places in all times. Politicians can say, “God agrees with me,” all they want, but their lies are lies no matter how many times they repeat them.

Politicians are not the only ones who play this dangerous game. Every rationalizing soul at one time or another comes up with reasons or excuses for why God now agrees with them in spite of what he has always said.

God-talk without a God-walk is foolish.

God-talk without a God-heart is empty.

God-talk without a God-orientation is aimless.

Let it be, let it be, let it be, oh let it be that when we speak of or for God that we do so from a life fully attuned to his heart and completely aligned with his ways. May we shudder at the possibility of misrepresenting God’s truth. May we embrace, embody, and express his truth in all things at all times.

 
—————————————————————————
I will know God’s heart and walk in all of his ways.

—————————————————————————

Our Father, you have expressed yourself well and have preserved your words of truth and life for all people in all places at all times. Teach us your knowledge and wisdom. Shape our lives with it. Empower us to express it appropriately. May you ever be on our lips. May you always fill our hearts. Amen.

Daily D – Job 11:13-18

Job 11:13-18 **

“As for you, if you redirect your heart
and spread out your hands to him in prayer —
if there is iniquity in your hand, remove it,
and don’t allow injustice to dwell in your tents —
then you will hold your head high, free from fault.
You will be firmly established and unafraid.
For you will forget your suffering,
recalling it only as water that has flowed by.
Your life will be brighter than noonday;
its darkness will be like the morning.
You will be confident, because there is hope.
You will look carefully about and lie down in safety.”
