Jeremiah 33


Church Family,

Judah and Israel had sinned constantly and were unwilling to repent. Like many people in the world today, they did not believe God’s word or follow it. Yes, the knew the words of God and they used word of God when it benefited them, but as a whole they did not know or love God. Their pride and rebellion lead to God exiling them, but read what God’s purpose was for the exile.

Jeremiah 33:8-9 I will cleanse them from all the guilt of their sin against me, and I will forgive all the guilt of their sin and rebellion against me. 9And this city shall be to me a name of joy, a praise and a glory before all the nations of the earth who shall hear of all the good that I do for them. They shall fear and tremble because of all the good and all the prosperity I provide for it.

Notice, who does the cleansing? Who does the forgiving? Who does the blessing?

Can I lovingly encourage you today to stop trying to change your life? Stop trying to forgive yourself. Stop trusting in your plans to prosper. Now trust in the Lord to do those things, because truth be told, only God can transform you, forgive you, and prosper you. When God does, be sure to let the community hear all the good that God has done for you.
