S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
Should you then seek great things for yourself? Do not seek them. For I will bring disaster on all people, declares the Lord, but wherever you go I will let you escape with your life.
In this forty-fifth chapter of Jeremiah, God had Jeremiah step aside from prophesying His truth to Judah and gave him five short verses to encourage Jeremiah’s scribe Baruch. Baruch had written every word just as Jeremiah had instructed him. These words came from the heart of God Almighty, and the word of the Lord was so judgmental that as was said in the last devotional, Jehoiakim, the king of Judah, had the prophecy burned in the fire. Of course God had Baruch write the same words again on another section of parchment. Baruch had become afraid for his very life. So God had Jeremiah dictate a message to Baruch that was for him specifically, which basically said, “Don’t Worry, You Shall Live And Not Die.”
Obviously, the Holy Scripture also tells us that “It is appointed unto man once to die” (Heb. 9:27). Yet what God was saying to Baruch in his hour of fear and great trial was simply, you will not die at this time. Someone is reading this short devotional this AM, and like Baruch the world has dealt you such a severe blow that it has you cornered with fear. Lately you have suffered panic attacks and such anxiety because of a certain thing you have been facing. Regardless of your present circumstances, please hear the “Word of the Lord” for you today. “Don’t Worry You Shall Live And Not Die.”
I do not know who You have intended this Word for today, but I know they are reading right now. I ask that You bring perfect peace in this their very real and perfect storm. May they know this AM that they will live and not die. Amen
