God's response to all the discouraged

Daily Thought

Your Word for 16 April 2024

Colossians 1:13
‘He has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of His dear Son.’

God responds to Jeremiah in his discouragement.  God gives him some advice to help him out of the hole that he had found himself in.

Jeremiah 15:19 Therefore thus says the Lord [to Jeremiah]: If you return [and give up this mistaken tone of distrust and despair], then I will give you again a settled place of quiet and safety, and you will be My minister; and if you separate the precious from the vile [cleansing your own heart from unworthy and unwarranted suspicions concerning God’s faithfulness], you shall be My mouthpiece. [But do not yield to them.] Let them return to you—not you to [the people].

Lets look at God’s response.  The first thing that God does is to offer him the option of returning.
Often times when we are discouraged we become self-focused and self-orientated.  We begin to feel sorry for ourselves.  This self-orientation needs to be replaced with a returning to God and becoming God orientated.  We need to become God conscience and remind ourselves that God is all-powerful and limitless.  We must stop limiting God and return to a place of faith in God.
