EXTRA READING: JEREMIAH 15
Consider Think about the last time you immersed yourself in God’s word. You may not have ever considered these words from the prophet Jeremiah until this day. Jeremiah became one of the greatest prophets of OT times and his ministry was blessed because of his unrelenting desire to “eat up” God’s word.
Focus Read all of chapter 15 of Jeremiah. He is once again lamenting over his situation of the disobedience of God’s people. He, however, is able to present his case to the Lord honestly because of his undying faithfulness and love of the Lord and HIS word.
72 Instruction from Your lips is better for me than thousands of gold and silver pieces. Psalm 119:72
