“This message came to Jeremiah from the lord early in the reign of Jehoiakim son of Josiah, king of Judah. “This is what the lord says: Stand in the courtyard in front of the Temple of the lord, and make an announcement to the people who have come there to worship from all over Judah. Give them my entire message; include every word. Perhaps they will listen and turn from their evil ways. Then I will change my mind about the disaster I am ready to pour out on them because of their sins. “Say to them, ‘This is what the lord says: If you will not listen to me and obey my word I have given you, and if you will not listen to my servants, the prophets—for I sent them again and again to warn you, but you would not listen to them— then I will destroy this Temple as I destroyed Shiloh, the place where the Tabernacle was located. And I will make Jerusalem an object of cursing in every nation on earth.’” The priests, the prophets, and all the people listened to Jeremiah as he spoke in front of the lord ’s Temple. But when Jeremiah had finished his message, saying everything the lord had told him to say, the priests and prophets and all the people at the Temple mobbed him. “Kill him!” they shouted.” (Jeremiah 26:1-8 NLT)
Good day Family! God gave Jeremiah a message to deliver to Judah. God was speaking through Jeremiah letting them know that if they did not turn from their rebellious ways that He (God) would bring disaster on them. Well the elders and people did not like what was said and wanted to kill Jeremiah.
Sometimes God will send someone to deliver a message to us. And we may not like the message that is being delivered. Our natural response may be to lash out at that person. But that is not what we should do, they are just a messenger. The message delivered may not be to our liking, but we must receive it. Why? Because It is for our good. It may be a warning for us to turn from the path we are going down and to come back to Him.
God will speak through people in our life. We need to listen and receive what is being said and not shoot the messenger. After all the words that are being spoke are for our benefit!
Much Love & God Bless
