19 Thus stated the Lord unto me; Go and stand within the gate of the youngsters of the individuals, whereby the kings of Judah are available, and by the which they exit, and in all of the gates of Jerusalem;

20 And say unto them, Hear ye the phrase of the Lord, ye kings of Judah, and all Judah, and all of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, that enter in by these gates:

KEY VERSE: “However they obeyed not, neither inclined their ear, however made their neck stiff, that they may not hear, nor obtain instruction.” – (Jeremiah 17:23)

MESSAGE:

God, in His infinite knowledge, created man and gave him the liberty to make choices. For each choice, there are all the time choices and man should select what to do. Generally, the alternatives are merely between good and unhealthy. For each selection we make, there’s all the time a consequence. No matter selection man decides to make in the end comes again to find out his remaining vacation spot!

God despatched Prophet Jeremiah to remind the Israelites of their unfavourable behavior of rejecting His directions and the implications of rebel of their lives. He was additionally to remind them of the advantages that they might derive by obeying His phrases. The historical past of the Jewish nation confirms how their selections introduced unpalatable penalties upon them.

Basically, the search for freedom and independence has made man a sufferer of his selections. Adam and Eve selected the serpent’s recommendation in opposition to God’s they usually misplaced the backyard. Abraham selected to stroll with God and have become the daddy of countries. Joseph rejected the amorous advances of Potiphar’s spouse and landed in jail; however he was lifted to prominence. Judas selected thirty items of silver above his relationship with Jesus and he ended his life prematurely.

As you go about your actions immediately, do not forget that each selection you make will entice commensurate consequence. Disobedience is a selection. Nobody can compel you to disobey God in opposition to your will. Neither can anybody power you to serve God faithfully until you need to. The selection to obey or disobey is solely yours.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
You’re the product of the alternatives you make.
