IN MESSAGE

There are three forces that exist that would seek to rob you of your union with and usefulness for the LORD. They have to be seriously and severely dealt with. There is the principle of sin, the power of Satan and the presence of self (the selfish nature that seeks to dictate and ruin life). In and through Christ only can they be dealt with and mastered. Christ not only forgives sin He delivers from its rule and domination. As you are crucified with Christ evil is conquered. Satan loses his hold and goes because of a new resident and president King. You are translated out of the kingdom of Satan and placed in Christ’s domain where He rules. A new self emerges which is seen to be selfless and not selfish. Living for Christ and others becomes the king-pin and procedure of life. Life is motivated anew in brand-new function and fashion!

WISE SAYINGS

“My son, give me thine heart” – Proverbs 23:26

God can and does heal a broken heart, but He has to have all the pieces. Unless He has all have your heart He cannot perfect that which concerns you in all things.

PROMISES TO BE EXPERIENCED

“Call unto Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which thou knowest not” – Jeremiah 33:3. This promise holds good now for those who seek an intimate accord with the LORD and desire to be in the know and used by Him. He seeks people, and that can be you, whom He can bless with true understanding and employ them in sacred service and perform great things. The Bible is full of ordinary people whom God heard pray and answered in incredible ways. This can be and ought to be true of you. Do not settle for anything less than having the LORD answering and working through you in a heavenly manner.

DAILY MEDITATIONS

A LOVING GOD – Jeremiah 31: 1-22

These words come from the lips of the Lord and He doesn’t lie – “I have loved you with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn you” – v3. The purest inspiration and motivation had been at the heart of God in creating and sustaining a relationship with this unique people, Israel. There had been no ulterior motive in seeking a union with this nation. True love and passion had been the initial and continual drive in His being in seeking a holy bond with this chosen race. They were existent as a distinct community because He had eternally loved them.

Consequently Israel had been the recipients of His immense loving-kindness. They had not only been made into a chosen nation, they had experienced choice blessings at His hands and even the future was promising despite their present circumstances. He was going to see to it that after the discipline there would be a marvellous release of His blessing on them. The outcome as announced in v22 – “Israel will embrace her God.” She will know how loving the One that chose her is! It was a major lesson that needed to get through to their minds and hearts.

The great discovery of life for all humanity is to find out the warmth and greatness of the love of God. His love has forever been revealed and sealed in and through Christ. By reason of His coming, through His life, death and resurrection it is possible to know God’s love. It is to be sensed at a personal level. Paul could say: “He loved me and gave Himself for me” – Galatians 2: 20. It is necessary for you to discover and know that love because God wills to express His loving-kindness on you in time and for all eternity. Know that He has always loved you. It is so today.

IN MESSAGE

It is very necessary to keep a complete openness mind and to God and the things of God so that He can birth and nurture love, knowledge, faith and all that is essential to achieving His great plan for your life on earth. There is no way that He will seek to enforce matters with you. It commences in your willingness to be the recipient of what He wills to graciously grant so that you will become the person He desires and become most effectual in your stay on this planet. Do not allow the world or Satan offload their rubbish on you and so be rendered unusable for the greater workings of God. Take all the measures possible to make yourself available to and for God at all times.

WISE SAYINGS

“Look not every man on his own thIngs, but every man also on the things of others” – Philippians 2:

The best way to forget your own problems is to help someone solve his. In so doing yours somehow get uniquely solved.

PROMISES TO BE EXPERIENCED

“Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved” – Acts 16:31. Saved from what? From one’s sins and the judgment due to them, from a broken relationship with God in all of His love and favour, saved from a life of ignorance and one that is doomed, saved from hopelessness and despair. The positive is what you are saved to: becoming a member of God’s New family. To know the daily reality of Christ within life. To experience a purpose-filled life and the prospects of spending eternity in heaven etc. etc. You cannot afford to miss out one being saved by Christ. Repent, turn to Him and believe!

DAILY MEDITATIONS

DIVINE DISCIPLINE – Jeremiah 30

At this point the Lord made known the reason why His people had to endure such an awful time of judgment, pain and grief, it was because He was disciplining them for their sinful behaviour. He affirmed: “But I must discipline you; I cannot let you go unpunished” – v11 New Living Translation. Just as a child needs to be corrected and straightened out when it continually rebels and does wrong, so the need to administer chastisement to His elect household because of their waywardness. He had exerted Himself in so many ways to try and avert this measure.

In no way did He find it pleasurable to take action of this nature but if His people were to learn sense and become a people of godly character and worth then it was imperative. The extreme punishment would let them see how far they had gone wrong and cause them to reflect on their treatment of the Lord who had been so good to them. It would be a sharp lesson that would register and bring some decisive change in their relationship with Him and conduct. At the conclusion they would recognize their need to value the Lord in every way.

Christian discipleship carries the idea and fact of divine discipline. To become a disciple of Christ means the readiness to accept His discipline and to be truly corrected by Him so that wrong attitudes, beliefs, behaviour and procedures are eliminated from the life. The Lord seeks to pull His servants up at times and to show the wrong doing. If such is persisted in then He may adopt some punitive measures to press home the fact that it has to be dealt with. Remember, at the time, discipline is not easy to bear but it does yield good results – Hebrews 12: 11. Thery were to build homes, raise children and to multiply because He wanted them to become a choice people even though they were in a strange land. In no way were they to accepted the deities of the Babylonians or listen and hearken to their false prophets and mediums. It was imperative that they make sure they respond to Him at all times.

IN MESSAGE

Remember that God has made you the head and not the tail and through Him you are to direct proceedings and cause things to happen of His doing. You are not the tail, to live as a victim to everything and everyone. Although there is much to oppose and frustrate, you are the one that must not simply overcome but become a ruler in and with Him. Authority of a glorious order and power is yours to transact business relating to the kingdom of heaven which supersedes anything that other leaders and people are doing around you. Your labour is lasting and will be greatly rewarded at the end. So take control; today in and through Christ.

WISE SAYINGS

“Redeeming the time because the days are evil” – Ephesians 5:16

Recognise the nature of the days in which you live and be aware and committed to fulfilling your divinely appointed role and task within them. You are God’s answer for the times!

PROMISES TO BE EXPERIENCED

For those who are now the sons of God in and through Christ, it has to be known and experienced that there are choice blessings to be theirs now in Him. Paul make it clear: “He that spared not His own Son but delivered Him up for us all (that is to the Cross), how shall he not with Him also freely give us all things” – Romans 8:32. The resurrected Christ is alive and in the business of blessing all of the sons of God in remarkable way. One of the ways He does so is by making known what God has assuredly promised and desires to do for each member of the divine household, and that means you. It is important to claim your inheritance.

“In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths” – Proverbs 3:6. The secret of a very, fulfilled life in and for God is found in giving due to regard to God in reverence and obedience. It is making doubly certain that He has first place in your life, in your thinking and desiring and the utter commitment to respond to him above all. The LORD is not a soft option to be treated in any cool and off-hand manner. No. He must be truly sought and given the number one position and nothing and no one should be allowed to depose Him. He knows all those who actually do this and so they are advanced in every way within His kingdom

DAILY MEDITATIONS

A LETTER FROM THE LORD– Jeremiah 29

Jeremiah was directed by the Lord to send a letter to all the exiles in Babylon giving them instructions on what they should do in their new surroundings and circumstances. Instead of being rebellious they were to settle down and be good inhabitants and seek the welfare of the place. They were to build homes, raise children and to multiply because He wanted them to become a choice people even though they were in a strange land. In no way were they to accepted the deities of the Babylonians or listen and hearken to their false prophets and mediums. It was imperative that they make sure they respond to Him at all times.

The Lord guaranteed that if they truly respond to Him then things would work out favourably for them. He would see to that. There was a definite plan in His mind for them. The exile would last seventy years but after that He would make certain that they would be restored to their homeland a restored and better people. Peace and prosperity would be their lot and their future prospects would not be improved upon. It was up to them to believe and react rightly to this letter and in so doing they would have everything to anticipate. He would make the promise hold good.

It is always a choice thing to receive a letter that contains a message that fills the recipient full of faith and prospect. Who better than the Lord can write and give an inspired message by this means? This one that was penned centuries ago is still relevant today to all of God’s elect people. This world to the Christian is not their real home. Heaven is purposed for the saints. However, whilst here, the Lord has destined that His people be blessed in everyway. His plans are good for the now as long as the Lord and His word is believed and honoured. Believe v11.

Do not be afraid to be a witness to Christ in this generation. As you share Him and HIs grace and power with others, so you will see them make the great discovery of Christ, the uniqueness of His person and the wonders of His works. Your pleasure is to be found in sharing Jesus, the most wonderful person of all time, with all you meet. As you speak of Him, He will switch others on to listen to you and then switch them on to Himself and so a new life will be added to His kingdom. Your task is to enrich people with the priceless blessing of knowing, loving and serving Christ. Your reward will be now in rejoicing in seeing the transformation taking place in those you witness to and the fact that you are obeying your Lord. Christ said: “You shall be my witnesses”.- Acts 1:8.

All the blessings of the kingdom are now yours for this life as well as the next. Whatever is required today and every day for the future is covered by God. Your eyes and heart must never be fixed on your material assets or natural gifts but on God and His kingdom. He covenants to bless and what you have so that you can live a care-free life. He will see to it that you have a good and well-bless life.

DAILY MEDITATIONS

A DANGEROUS PROCEDURE – Jeremiah 28

God’s servant found that his words and action were openly contested. One by the name of Hananiah decided to confront and challenge Jeremiah before all the people. He first of all stated that the yoke of Babylon would be broken and that the exile will soon be over. In a matter of two years the captive king, Jehoiachin, along with the other slaves would be freed and return home. Jeremiah wisely and truly remarked – Amen! So let it be! But then he made the point that time would surely tell whether what he has affirmed is true and so vindicate his statements.

The false prophet, not being satisfied, took matters further and tried to make Jeremiah look foolish by breaking the wooden yoke that he was wearing and re-affirmed his vain prophecy. Now he was taking things too far and the Lord moved in and called His servant to make a yoke of iron to indicate that Babylon’s yoke would not be broken. Hananiah had to pay a severe penalty as the divine sentence of death went out against him. In two months he was dead. It was indeed a dangerous and foolish procedure he had entered upon.

This incident teaches that one has to be careful how with both words and deeds we invoke the name of the Lord. To affirm that the Lord is responsible and is behind the utterances is a serious issue. He will only vindicate what and who He sends and commissions. God’s people must always ascertain that when they speak on His behalf that their words and messages originate from Him. It is a sad thing when a person finishes up a fool and condemned by Him. inhabitants and seek the welfare of the place. They were to build homes, raise children and to multiply because He wanted them to become a choice people even though they were in a strange land. In no way were they to accepted the deities of the Babylonians or listen and hearken to their false prophets and mediums. It was imperative that they make sure they respond to Him at all times.

The impossible always becomes possible to a person who is possessed by God and His Word. Instead of saying it cannot be done they prove through the inspired Presence and Word that anything can happen that will serve to the blessedness of life and bring glory to God. So be amongst the people who know how to believe and witness the extraordinary and supernatural taking place. Do not simply live on a natural plane. Know that God is your Father and because you are His son and servant, He loves to do special things in, for and through you.

“The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and He delighteth in his way” – Psalm 37:23. The best way to enjoy the rich presence and blessing of the LORD is to make sure you are walking in the path He has appointed for you. Someone has said the starts, stops and steps of the godly person come under the guiding hand of your heavenly Father. The day as well as life and eternity are under His benign and loving control and He will see that you do not make mistakes, wander or miss out on the best. Follow His blessed instructions and He will make Himself and goodness known.

DAILY MEDITATIONS

SURRENDER AND SUBMISSION – Jeremiah 27

There was a distinct revelation given that Babylon would become a masterful nation to rule other kingdoms. They had been destined by God to assume authority over a number of nations besides Judah. The word of the Lord to them was that to avoid war, bloodshed, grief and the spoiling of the land that they surrender and submit. Then they would be on good terms with the invaders and thus spare the people from untold loss and pain. This did not mean that they agreed with the invasion but that it was wise in the light of the outcome.

For Judah in particular it was needful. They had already experienced the force of Babylon and many of their families and friends were in a state of exile. It would be sensible to do this and so spare a lot of unnecessary heartache. Regrettably there were false prophets affirming that the exile would soon be over and that the precious things of the temple would soon be returned. Jeremiah stated the best of course of action was to surrender and submit and so avert terrible tragedy. It was not the time to resist because God had ordained this to happen.

In most testing and pressurized times it is essential to know what to do in order to prevent worse things occurring. The mind of the Lord needs to be known. What may be said may not always be palatable but He will always speak the truth and have the welfare of His saints at heart. It is a wise thing to take heed and follow through His advice even though it may conflict with the natural mind. Possibly you are being called to surrender a situation and submit to others yet it is very painful. The whole thing could mean your salvation and blessedness.

Look back upon your life not simply to live there in considering what the Lord has been and done for you but seeing as the basis for much more to be wrought in, for and through you. The past is not simply a memory base; it is a prophecy that indicates what is to be. They are but starters of greater things. There is so much more in the pipeline to flow in your direction to be participated in and enjoyed. Fresh and more meaningful experiences, enterprises and achievements are to be entered into that will make you stronger and better in your relationship with Him. Instead with living a victim attitude, you will enjoy the delight of being a supreme victor in every way, every day.

WISE SAYINGS

“I will remember the works of the LORD: surely I will remember your wonders of old. I will also meditate also of all your work, and talk of your doings” – Psalm 77: 11,12

“Lo, I will be with you alway, even unto the end of the world” – Matthew 28: 20. This is a sacred promise and covenant by the LORD to all of His people in every generation. The great truth is: He will ever be around and capable of meeting and ministering to each of His own in succeeding times. There is never any need to fear that He cannot live up to His assurance. As He was with Abraham, Moses, David etc., so He still ever is to stand by every one of His believing saints. So you are not only to confront this day whatever the demands but deal with it in a positive way.. He is alongside to encourage, impart and bless in incredible ways. So learn the important lesson of leaning on Him and drawing on His immediate presence and power.

 DAILY MEDITATIONS

SPIRITUAL COURAGE – Jeremiah 26

It was not an easy assignment to fulfil at the early part of the prophet’s ministry and in the time of Jehoiakim. He was told by the Lord to go and deliver a full message on the disaster that was going to overtake all in the presence of prophets, priests and people from all over Judah – v2. He had to stand and speak up and be the lone voice declaring seemingly bad news to them all. Actually, it was good news because it was a divine call for amendment of life in order to stop the need for judgment. Little did God’s servant know what the reaction would be! It would be like stirring up a hornet’s nest and he would be the focus of attack from all.

It did require spiritual courage to do this because of the uncertainty as to what would occur in the listeners. The Lord had already told him that there would come moments of real opposition and here it becomes manifest. He was mobbed and threatened with death and amazingly rescued. In defence of his action he told the people he was ready to die if need be but if they killed him his blood would be upon them. It was a further evidence of his boldness and courage. He would not back off but stood by his message and the fact that the Lord had sent him.

There must be this element of divine courage in every believer to maintain a testimony for the Lord before an unregenerate society. The early Christians had this sort of spirit and attitude as they faced an opposition that sought to crush it at its outset. They would not be silenced but spoke out the Christian message and saw its dynamic impact in conversions and growth. It may well be that you need to be more courageous than what you are. Let the example of others act as a stimulus and the aid of the Holy Spirit nerve you to stand for Christ and truth.

Make certain that you are at your spiritual best for the Lord today and this week-end so that you can contribute positively to Him and His kingdom. It is not a case of you doing your own thing but that which is acceptable to your Lord and Master and will yield utmost profit and blessings. Deal with those things that would sidetrack and subvert your spiritual life, faith and action, making sure that you are a premium for Him. By so doing you will encourage the Christian leadership, bring added inspiration and blessing to many others and so record a testimony that will be most God-glorifying. The time and opportunity may never present itself again so seize th same for lasting good. Remember, “Seek first the kingdom of heaven and all things will be added unto you” – Matthew 6:33.

Whatever He did for this great patriarch, He still is able to make and keep promise with all who know and live of Christ. All through your pilgrim journey He is present to bless. Yes, even now, today.

DAILY MEDITATIONS

A FULFILLED PROPHECY– Jeremiah 25

A forecast was given most early of what was going to occur in the history of God’s people. The Lord reveals that He is able to predict with certainty, long before things take place, as to what is going to happen in the affairs of men. This message came in the time of Jehoiakim, king of Judah – v1. The word was that the land of Judah would be desolated and that the people would be taken to Babylon and made to serve them for 70 years – vv11, 12. The Lord allowed Babylon to rise as a nation and to become a tool in His hand to mete out judgment. And it came to pass as was prophesied.

The complete prophecy was that Babylon itself would be judged and made to pay a price because of her maltreatment of God’s people. She will be made to face the music because of the atrocities committed. Daniel, one of the people who had been exiled, was aware of this prophecy of deliverance for his people and prayed in accord with it – Daniel 9: 2. He regarded God’s Word as being sure on this and so it was accomplished. When the years had elapsed and the time and scene was ready, God brought His people back home for a fresh start.

God’s people are to know the inspired, prophetic word in their affairs and be attuned to the fact that God does speak with certainty into the direction of future events. Through His Word, Spirit and servants He makes known what is to be so that life can be channelled according to His will and programme. It is necessary for all God’s children to be acutely aware of what He is planning and arranging. As you humbly seek His face in communion and diligently read, study and obey His Word, you will not be in ignorance as to where He is leading and taking you.

IN MESSAGE

Be faithful to that which the LORD has called you to. Know in mind and heart His special and personal vocation for your life and do not delay in achieving His noble purposes. All the fulfilment and satisfaction to be found is in this. You are special to Him and He has a distinct assignment and agenda for your present existence and experience. Only as you wait on and for Him will this become clear and convincing and the discovery will be yours that He will be with you all the way to see such wrought out..At the conclusion, you will receive both His admiration and commendation and you will be eternally grateful that you fell in accord with His will.

WISE SAYINGS

“And Jesus said unto Him”, ‘No man, having put his hand to the plough and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God’ – Luke 9:62

Having been born into and blessed within the kingdom by the King, how can go back to gthat which is lesser and not lasting. Life can only be understood by looking backward, but it must be lived looking forward.

THINGS TO BE DISPOSED OF

Whilst there are positive spiritual factors to be introduced into one new   nature that have to be put off, removed from one’s being and behaviour. Paul said to the saints at Ephesus “That you put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts – Eph 4:22. It should become obvious that Christ has renewed you and that the Holy Spirit is in charge and that you are conforming to the standards that God’s Word reveal. It is essential to identify them and see that they have no place in our faith and conduct.

“And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them” – Ephesians 5:11. Seeing you have been lit up by Christ the Light of Life and the World, you are to shine with a unique lustre, revealing the positive qualities of life that were and are in Him. Having disposed of all the evil factors you cannot help but radiate and emit the glorious beauty and effulgence of Christ. As Christ reflected the image and glory of the Father, so this is transmitted to and through you. Satan, the prince of darkness has no presence or authority now over you because you are in the kingdom of light to be a shining example of the life that is to be found and known in Christ alone. You are His light-bearer!

DAILY MEDITATIONS

A STARK CONTRAST – Jeremiah 24

A particular vision was given to God’s servant to grant knowledge of what was happening with regard to the people that had been exiled and the ones still remaining at Jerusalem under king, Zedekiah. Two baskets of figs were revealed, one full of good figs, the other, bad. A lesson of significance was conveyed given the state of two lots of people. Those regarded as the good fruit were the ones’ that had been taken captive to Babylon and the bad were the folks still resident in the homeland. The position of both could not be more in stark contrast.

One would think that those who had been taken captive would be in the worst situation: not so. They were a chosen company taken out to be preserved from destruction and to be prepared by God at a later date for repatriation having learned some major lessons in Babylon. They were not to be pitied but envied because God was to be with them to work out some good things – vv5-7. It was far better to be facing this difficult period and state with God than be subjected to a time of awful judgment at home. They were in a much securer and safer place.

There are occasions when it possible to be jealous of someone else because they may appear to be in a more secure situation of life. They may have escaped a dreaded evil and look as if everything has turned out to distinct advantage. It often seems that evil people get the better of things. It needs to be understood that God does give insight beforehand to show that such are not so well placed. If the real truth was known they are in a vulnerable and treacherous position. The only true and sure security and hope is in being covered and catered for by the Lord.

IN MESSAGE

You have been enriched in and by Christ in order that you may bless and enrich others. You are to become a crystal stream full of fresh, heavenly water that people will come and drink and be satisfied and blessed and realize that what you are and possess is divine quality. The more you live in and off Him, the greater the flow and many will be attracted and impacted by what they taste of your life, service and ministry. It will be your joy and pleasure to observe the difference this will make to them, in point of fact, they will also become rivers of blessing taking their cue from you. Instead of being obsessed with the negative force of sin you will be a positive individual consumed by God’s gravce, love and goodness.

WISE SAYINGS

“There is that maketh himself rich, yet hath nothing: there is that maketh himself poor yet hath great riches” – Proverbs 13:7

A man is rich according to what he is, not what according he has.

The Lord enriches you to enrich others and as you fulfil this you become possessed with the true, eternal riches. As you give away, more returns and you have abundance to bless in a greater manner and measure.

THINGS TO BE DISPOSED OF

Whilst there are positive spiritual factors to be introduced into one new nature received from Christ, there are things that belong to the old sinful and carnal nature that have to be put off, removed from one’s being and behaviour. Paul said to the saints at Ephesus “That you put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts – Eph 4:22. It should become obvious that Christ has renewed you and that the Holy Spirit is in charge and that you are conforming to the standards that God’s Word reveal. It is essential to identify them and see that they have no place in our faith and conduct.

“Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient, but rather giving of thanks” – Ephesians 5: 4. What you think and say reveal to a great extent what kind of person you are. Whilst humour is good in its place, it must not become a life-style and where it sinks into the base and corrupt. The mouth must be sanctified and give forth words that build and bless the faith of others and are a real testimony to your Lord. You have much in Him to pass on to others without having to sink the level of evil speech. Even though you exist in a carnal world that ever propagates such, it shall not dwell in or motivate you at any time.

DAILY MEDITATIONS

FALSE MESSENGERS – Jeremiah 23

It seems that there were an abundance of false messengers in Jeremiah’s day that serve up a load of vain prophecies thus deceiving the people. All they did was to speak out of their own minds and hearts and utter messages that were totally untrue. They communicated assurances that all would be well in the name of the Lord but they would prove to be utterly vain. Instead of being at peace, there would come war and conflict and ultimate exile. All that they were bothered about was in making a lucrative gain out of their worthless addresses.

The Lord was angry with these so-called divine messengers and pronounced judgment upon them. They and their words would be shown up for what they were but the people needed to wake up to the reality of these kind of people in their midst. It was time they sorted themselves out and delivered themselves from listening and taking note of them. If they hearkened to them then they were as guilty as them. Knowing that the Lord had not sent or given His word to them should mean they should be rejected from having input into their situation.

Paul and Peter acquaint us that there were false prophets and teachers in their day seeking to make their presence and teachings known in the churches. It was necessary that every believer knew who these people were and not to allow themselves to be perverted by their speeches. It is absolutely important that you be careful that you do not become gullible to these kinds of people and their doctrines. Ever be watchful in these matters and the Holy Spirit and good Christian teachers will help you to know the truth.

IN MESSAGE

Belonging to the Lord means that all that belongs to Him belongs to you. You are an heir of Christ and inherit all that is in Him and so it it time to claim and live in your inheritance. He certainly is rich in all the choice benefits and loves to share with those who know how to relate to Him in faith and life. You have not be called to be a pauper in spiritual realties but exceedingly rich so that you can enhance the life of your family and friends , and others, too. Christ is your greatest asset for time and eternity and it is time for you to draw upon and live off His grace and goodness.

WISE SAYINGS

“And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap if we faint not” – Galatians 6:9

Persistence in that which is good in terms of sowing is sure to produce a bumper harvest, so go for it and stay with it and reap the results.

THINGS TO BE DISPOSED OF

Whilst there are positive spiritual factors to be introduced into one new nature received from Christ, there are things that belong to the old sinful and carnal nature that have to be put off, removed from one’s being and behaviour. Paul said to the saints at Ephesus “That you put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts – Eph 4:22. It should become obvious that Christ has renewed you and that the Holy Spirit is in charge and that you are conforming to the standards that God’s Word reveal. It is essential to identify them and see that they have no place in our faith and conduct.

DAILY MEDITATIONS

A FAILED LEADERSHIP – Jeremiah 22

One of the main reasons why Judah failed was due to its weak leadership. The kings that took the throne failed to give the spiritual and moral direction that the people needed. The last four monarchs left much to be desired and were a letdown to God’s people. They should have been like shepherds caring for the wholesome welfare of the people under their charge and control but they failed to give a loving and righteous lead to them. They failed God and the nation and much was lost of real benefit. Things could have been so different had they governed aright for God.

Thankfully it wasn’t to remain forever in this awful state. The man of God was able to predict a time when all would be changed and that godly, caring leaders would assume the control – vv4-6, headed by a unique King who would give overall righteous leadership. He would be of a similar standing and nature of David but infinitely superior. It is a distinct reference to the Messiah, Jesus Christ, the One who would be the Good, Chief and Great Shepherd of all. He would raise up a leadership under Him that would fully care for His people.

Viewing Christendom and the world today, it has to be said, there is a demand for quality leaders that bear the spirit and capabilities of Christ to both care and command. In seeing people exposed to the many evils of this hour, and noting the awful inroads and impact such has made upon them, it is essential that there be birthed spiritual leaders that can deliver them out of this condition. All Christians should be praying for the arrival and ministry of these people that can make such a difference. Pray for those over you that they may rightly discharge their duty.
