Dear Christians, Our Race is Getting Faster and Harder - Jeremiah 12:5-6

When Jeremiah Complained about the difficulty of serving God, God said the most incredible thing to Jeremiah! This 1-minute devotion explains. #BibleLoveNotes #Bible #Biblestudy
Jeremiah complained (Jeremiah 12:1-4). 

When he faithfully shared God’s truth, he was persecuted and despised, even by family members. 

Have you felt Jeremiah's pain?

People once tolerated immorality; now they applaud it (Romans 1:32). They once tolerated Christian values; now they mock them.

If you lovingly share the Bible’s teaching on homosexuality, fornication, or abortion, you’ll feel Jeremiah’s pain.

If you discuss Biblical accuracy or Christian responsibility with some in the family of God, you feel Jeremiah’s pain (12:6).

How did God answer Jeremiah’s complaints?

“If you have raced with men on foot and they have worn you out, how can you compete with horses?”  (12:5)

God understood Jeremiah’s pain, but the race was getting faster and God wanted Jeremiah to pick up the pace and keep running. 

Dear friends, this message applies to us as well.

The race is getting faster and harder, but God's Word will give us speed and endurance.

  2. It's way past time to add racism and the sin of it to that list. Seriously, it can no longer be deflected. It is disobedience and it is addressed in the Bible.

    1. Hi JeeSun,
      I agree that racism is a problem, and if you are a regular reader of my blog, you'll know that I've written about it several times.

      It doesn't fit the theme of this devotion which deals with acceptance of decaying morals, but it's certainly a sin.
