One word from God can change our lives! The renegades who invaded Jerusalem came to Jeremiah to inquire about the Lord’s will for them. They submitted themselves to God’s servant and committed that whatever Jeremiah brought back from God, they would follow.
God clearly told them to stay in Jerusalem and He would bless them. They rejected the Word that the prophet Jeremiah spoke to them and did the exact opposite. God not only told them what would happen if they obeyed but God also told them what would happen if they didn’t obey. They chose the route of disobedience and everything that God told them would happen, did happen.
We do well to remember that every act of disobedience carries with it consequences. God has given us shepherds to speak His Word to us. Train yourself to hear God speak to you through your Pastor’s voice. It is the voice that can speak life into dying situations. It can give hope to desperate situations and it can bring peace to turbulent situations. God’s Word will never fail so trust what God says to you for it will surely happen!
