2019 – TUESDAY 11 JUNE
THE PROPHETIC VOICE
So they said to Jeremiah, “Let the Lord be a true and faithful witness between us, if we do not do according to everything which the Lord your God sends us – by you. Whether it is pleasing or displeasing, we will obey the voice of the Lord our God to whom we send you, that it may be well with us when we obey the voice of the Lord our God.”
THE LORD IS OUR WITNESS
It is God who judges the hearts.
He is also a witness of what promises we make together.
You can break a promise to a person – but don’t forget – God was your witness.
DO EVERYTHING HE TELLS US
When God speaks it is not for debate – but for obedience.
When God speaks it demands immediate and willing action.
WE SEND YOU TO GOD
People who don’t want to hear the now word of the Lord – demean and discount the role of the prophet.
They want the prophet around when it is all good news – but ignore the warnings and call to humility.
PLEASING OR DISPLEASING
If you want God to speak clearly – make up your mind to obey His word whatever the cost may be.
THAT IT MAY BE WELL WITH US
Obedience always brings blessing – sooner than you may think possible.
Disobedience will bring judgement – sooner than you may think possible.
WHEN WE OBEY THE VOICE OF THE LORD OUR GOD
The voice of the Lord is heard three ways in the company of the righteous.
The Holy Spirit within. – personal promises to believe.
The Bible as God’s rule – eternal precepts to build commitments.
The prophetic voice – specific calls to respond with obedient action.
GOD IS SPEAKING TO YOU.
