May 20, 2014- Jeremiah 14
Famine, Sword, and Pestilence
“8 My mouth is filled with your praise, and with your glory all the day.Psalm 71:8
Chapter 14, “A drought upon the land of Judah. (1-7) A confession of sin in the name of the people. (8-9) The Divine purpose to punish is declared. (10-16) The people supplicate. (17-22)” – Matthew Henry Concise
Today we prayerfully continue our Feast reading the book of Jeremiah Chapter 14. Jeremiah prophecies concerning the drought. God’s chosen people are backsliding (see Jeremiah 14:1-9) they feel like God has abandoned them. God has not forsaken them; they have broken their covenant with God. Because they are unrepentant, God is referring to them as “this people” rather than “my people”. The land is full of false prophets (see Jeremiah 14:10-16filling the minds of “this people” with their lies. The prophet Jeremiah is confessing to the sinful ways of this people, (see Jeremiah 14:17-22) he is asking God to remember the covenant with His people. “21 Do not spurn us, for your name’s sake; do not dishonor your glorious throne; remember and do not break your covenant with us. 22 Are there any among the false gods of the nations that can bring rain? Or can the heavens give showers? Are you not he, O Lord our God? We set our hope on you, for you do all these things.“ Jeremiah 14:21-22 English Standard Versions (ESV). When we feel far off from God (see Hebrews 13:5) it is not God who has slid away. “May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus, that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.“ Romans 15:5-6 ESV. Jesus is faithful and true (see Ephesians 1:3) we can be assured of His love and righteousness. If we have vowed to do anything in Jesus name (see Luke 9:62) we can never turn back.
