    Thoughts and Reflections Today we learn that Jeremiah remains in prison in a city that is under siege. He continues to trust in the Lord and he knows that he can call out to God and be answered. It’s important to know that our prayers are answered by God as well, and they are answered […]

    Day 246 – Rejoice in Doing Good

    Thoughts and Reflections In today’s reading, Jeremiah is imprisoned for speaking the truth. He tells King Zekekiah that Babylon will be victorious over Jerusalem. God tells Jeremiah to go buy a field even though it will later be conquered. He does so. This act demonstrates his faith in the Lord. In Proverbs, it tells us […]

    Day 244 – Susanna’s Righteousness

    Thoughts and Reflection Today we read that the Lord will ask Jeremiah to write about a time when the people of Israel will return from exile. Rather than being a negative prophet, Jeremiah is filled with positivity and encouragement. Interestingly Daniel chapter 12 is not fond in many protestant bibles. It mentions the archangel Michael […]

    Day 243 – The Lord’s Plans

    Thoughts and Reflection Today we read about Hananiah, a false prophet who says that in two years Nebuchadnezzar is going to fall and the people of Israel will return.

    Day 242 – The Role of King Nebuchadnezzar

    Thoughts and Reflection Today we go back in time to the reign of Jehoiakim, who is the son of Josiah. Jeremiah begins his prophetic mission under Josiah and it continues under Jehoiakim. After Jehoiakim, we jump forward to the reign of Zedekiah, who is the final king under whom Jeremiah preaches. During his life, Jeremiah […]

    Day 241 – Daniel and the Den of Lions

    Thoughts and Reflections Today we read about Zedekiah of which the final wave of deportations to Babylon takes place. Jeremiah is shown two baskets of figs; one that is good and the other that is bad. The good figs represent those who have already been exiled while the bad ones represent those who have stayed […]

    Day 240 – Remaining Humble

    Thoughts and Reflection Today we are reminded in Proverbs that everything we do we should do for God. We are also told in Jeremiah that God is near and not just watching at some far along place. We should not take the name of the Lorn in vain. We should not use God’s name carelessly […]

  • Day 239 – Hannah, Mishael, and Azariah

    Day 239 – Hannah, Mishael, and Azariah

    Thoughts and Reflection Today we read about how the king of Judah calls for repentance. The people that are part of the covenant with the lord are called to be faithful and take care of the poor, orphans, widows, and strangers. We must care for those who have no one to care for them. In […]

  • Day 238 – Fall of Jerusalem

    Day 238 – Fall of Jerusalem

    Thoughts and Reflection Today we read that Jeremiah is put in the stocks. He is hurt by this and reaches out to the Lord saying “you have deceived me.” Jeremiah is surrounded by false prophets who have no problem with lying. They falsely proclaim that God will deliver his people from Babylon. Jeremiah again reiterates […]
