Pour (Jeremiah 10:23-25)

Good morning all,

The word of the day is “pour.”  Jeremiah ended his temple address with a prayer to God. The prophet admitted that a person’s life can’t be considered his or her own as though they are free to direct their own steps. The Lord is in control, and only those who let God direct their ways will be truly blessed. Because Judah’s judgment was inevitable, Jeremiah pleaded that it might come only with God’s justice and not with His anger.  Jeremiah was asking for God’s patience in passing judgment or else the nation might be reduced to nothing…

“Correct me, Lord, but only with justice — not in your anger, lest you reduce me to nothing. Pour out your wrath on the nations that do not acknowledge you, on the peoples who do not call on your name.”
~Jer. 10:23-24

My question is: do you allow God to pour his goodness into your life?  There are so many things that you can do with the strength of the Lord.  He asks only for our obedience and love.  My prayer is that God is in control of your life today and continues to be more so in the future.  Each of you is a special individual and the Lord will bless you.  Just as the Lord rightly delivered judgment on his people, so does he pour out his blessings on those who call on the name of JC.  Live your life according to the decrees God has given.  He will correct your missteps and give you a heart more toward his each day.

Praying for you,
