Good morning all,
The word of the day is “prune.” God is a loving father that needed to give direction to his peeps, even though sometimes the decisions made were not always the most fun. In this passage we see that Jeremiah is the true prophet of God that is called to make some predictions and decisions that he knows will not be received well by the others. But since this is the correct counsel and prophecy, he must give that message. God does these things to prosper his will and lead the Israelites to righteousness…
“Give them a message for their masters and say, ‘This is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says: “Tell this to your masters: With my great power and outstretched arm I made the earth and its people and the animals that are on it, and I give it to anyone I please.”
My question is: how is God going to use this year to prune and shape your life? Just as God used prophets to speak to the Israelites, he will speak to you through friends, circumstances, and his Word. My prayer is that this year the Lord increases your ability to lead and serve others by shaping your own life from within. God is going to do good things for you and all of his believers. I know that your year will be fruitful as you look toward serving him.
Praying for you,
