Jeremiah 15:10-21, Rebellion Rebound

Key Verse

Therefore thus says the Lord: If you turn back, I will take you back, and you shall stand before me. If you utter what is precious, and not what is worthless, you shall serve as my mouth. It is they who will turn to you, not you who will turn to them.
— Jeremiah 15:19

RCL Daily Devotion for Thursday, September 5, 2019

RCL Daily Devotions written by R. Fergus Moir from RCL Worship Resources (see more).

Jeremiah complained a lot. It wasn’t easy being God’s prophet. He had lots of hard things to say to the people and the people didn’t like it. They even plotted to kill him. It’s no wonder, then, that Jeremiah wanted to throw up his hands and rebel against God.

Following God isn’t easy. We are called to speak truth to power. We are called to say what isn’t popular. It’s easy to get discouraged, to get angry at God, to want to walk away.

Yet God offers a word of grace and a word of hope. No matter how we rebel, God will always take us back, always love and support us. God strengthens and encourages us, and promises that God’s truth will stand.

God, call me back into your service and strengthen me for the journey. Amen.
