Nothing Hidden

Acts 17:30

Jeremiah 36:1-32

From prison Jeremiah spoke the word of The Lord. Baruch, a scriber, wrote the words on a scroll.

The words of the scroll were made known to the princes and kings. It told of their future destruction if they didn’t repent of their evil ways.

They chose not to heed to the word. Instead they threw the scroll in the fire.

But choosing to act as if they’d never heard the warning didn’t work on their behalf. They were still punished.

Has The Lord given you direction in your life? Has he convicted you of sin?

Are you choosing to ignore His love? Are you “playing dumb” in hopes that He’ll let it slide?

God knows your heart.

Be honest with yourself.

Grow in The Lord.

Keep Engaged

Job 32:8

John 21:15-17

Acts 10:9-16

Sometimes I feel like I just don’t get what The Lord is trying to teach me.

It’s discouraging and I feel like if I don’t figure it out quick enough then The Lord will just throw up His hands in frustration and move on.

So I was very encouraged while studying my bible this morning. Because even though I knew God doesn’t just dismiss His children in frustration He gave me an example.

Peter.

Three times Jesus asked Peter “Peter do you love me?”.

Three times Jesus had to say to Peter “feed my sheep.”

Jesus also gave Peter a vision concerning what once was unclean meat.

Three times God had to tell Peter that it was now okay to eat what was once unclean.

Three times.

The Lord kept speaking to Peter until he got it.

Peter just stayed engaged. He kept communicating with The Lord until it finally dawned on him what was being said.

Our God. The creator of each and every human that has ever walked His beautiful earth cares enough about us to patiently teach us. He doesn’t give up on us.

Don’t give up on Him. Be still and know that He is God.
