#LAWisdom Devotional: Wisdom To Change Your Ways (Jer 26) by @Sholape1

Thursday November 3 2016

Reading: Jeremiah 26, Revelations 19

Wisdom To Change Your Ways!

TEXT: “Now therefore, amend your ways and your doings, and obey the voice of the Lord your God; then the Lord will relent concerning the doom that He has pronounced against you.”
Jeremiah 26:13 (NKJV)

Learn and Apply:
No one likes bad news or bad prophecy, and most times we react to the negative news rather than analyze the real message God wants to pass across. How many times have we clapped back with “God forbid that I lose my job” when we are warned of our attitude to work? Or ‘unfriend’ someone who reminds us that we are on a route to poverty because of our frivolous lifestyle and poor financial decisions?

Like the priests and prophets in Jer. 26:3, who flew off the handle when they heard the message that they would be destroyed,  today’s lesson is to change our evil behaviors – disobedience to God’s word regarding our health, finance, work ethic, relationships and not to merely clap back with ‘God forbid’.

Pray: Faithful Father, teach me how to sieve the wheat from the chaff. Help me to see and understand what your message is in the midst of so much noise in Jesus’ name.
