TEXT: JEREMIAH 2:31-37

OUTLINE: DCLM DAILY MANNA DEVOTIONAL 26TH FEBRUARY 2021 TODAY
Ignorance and rebellion are twin vices that have had their toll on mankind and particularly on the children of Israel who were privileged to receive the full oracle – the word and will of God. The leaders and people of Israel had a history of turning away from God, heading for other gods and preferring friendship and fellowship of sinful nations and people around them.
Our passage today reveals the sordid spiritual state of Israel, the secret but steady sliding away from the Lord and the presumptive supposition that all was well. This generation of Israelites even believed that they were innocent and had not sinned (verse 35). The condition of these religious sinners is not different from what is observed today in some individuals and corporate worshippers’ lives.
The arrogant deadness and continuance in sinful practices and lifestyle is in our society today. The righteous prophet and the holy God did not fail to draw the attention of these backsliding sinners to the dire consequences of their actions. The Lord recounted to Israel that their preferred allies – Egypt and Assyria – would fail them and they would return in shame and great frustration.
As believers, we should not court the anger of God by rebelling against Him, His word and will. Israel sowed their precious seeds to the wind of rebellion and compromise, and reaped the whirlwind of shame, defeat and death. Let us take heed and watch over our heart’s dispositions towards the Lord and His word.
Thought For Today: A surrendered will to God is priceless.
