Daily Scriptures 5/24/13

Scriptures: Jeremiah 33:1-2 1Moreover the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah a second time, while he was still shut up in the court of the prison, saying, 2“Thus says the LORD who made it, the LORD who formed it to establish it (the LORD is His name) (NKJV)

Nugget: Sometimes we feel that we’re praying & praying & cannot hear God. We feel as if our prayers are getting nowhere. I began to reflect on the times when I felt this way; I began to think about what I was doing during these times. Was I being still? Was I missing what God was trying to show me? Did He send me an answer through someone & I overlooked it?

In these scriptures, God came to Jeremiah a second time to speak to him & Jeremiah was in prison; it appears to me that God finally had Jeremiah in a situation where Jeremiah could both 1) listen to God & 2) be still! It’s amazing what God will do to get our attention. Yes, sometimes it takes all of this!

Jeremiah was finally in a place to accept what God was saying; our God who made everything, formed everything, & allows things to happen. If you’re currently not hearing God, is He trying to speak to you a second time as well?

Quote: “Normally my mind is racing a mile a minute thinking about my next move, the future, this and that...but today I'm choosing to be still and focus on the now. This moment. Thanking God for it and thanking Him for having already gone before me to work out the next scene in my life.” -Unknown
