Why?

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Jeremiah 43:7a So they entered Egypt in disobedience to the Lord. O-bservation: Just like God had promised, Israel was overrun by Nebuchadnezzar's Babylonian army. After completely destroying Jerusalem, Nebuchadnezzar let a small remnant of people from Judah stay, and Jeremiah the Prophet was released from prison to go back to his home. Several military leaders from Judah came and asked Jeremiah what they should do. Jeremiah asked God and God told Jeremiah to tell the people to stay in Judah and not go to Egypt. God said He would bless them if they stayed. When...
