Today's Reading: Jeremiah 13

Please read Jeremiah 13 and listen to what the Lord Jesus Christ would like to tell you before reading my Spiritual Journal below. If you would like to learn a simple and good way of Daily Devotion method please read my “Count Down 5” from this blog. You may click this link directly for the method: Subject Shifting Devotion.pdf. (You may begin with a song to praise the Lord and complete you devotion by singing another praise song.)

Please click the links below to Jeremiah 13:

"But if you do not listen,
I will weep in secret because of your pride;
my eyes will weep bitterly,
overflowing with tears,
because the Lord's flock will be taken captive."
Jeremiah 13: 17

Bible Study

What Jeremiah did was a kind of symbolic act using the belt to represent Israel and Judah's situation. They were just like a linen belt worn by the Lord, symbolizing the close relationship God once had with them. Now the people had become useless to God and must be thrown aside because of their pride.

They were just like empty wineskins. Instead of filling by wine they would be filled with drunkenness which symbolized judgment and eventually they would be destroyed.

Why? Jeremiah pointed out very clearly that was because of their pride, arrogant, stubbornness and unfaithfulness. As the "weeping" prophet, Jeremiah said that he was weeping secretly for their pride!

Do you think you have someone weeping for your arrogant and pride?

My Spiritual Journal

What I receive from Jesus is: I weep because of your pride!

Today our family started our one week holiday before my Doctoral Commencement next Saturday in California. The waiter who served us tonight told us that he might move to Canada before US is going down fast and he could not afford to go to university if he stays in US. I said, "Well, it's not where you go to. the answer is you need to go to Jesus." He was shock and told me he is an agnostic and walked away. Athanasius was laughing saying that I should not talk like that to a waiter scaring him out. When he was still laughing the waiter suddenly came back and told me his grandmother is a Christian and she would love to hear me. He then told me he believes in science rather than religion. I weep for his pride! I prayed that I have planted a seed in his soul that it is not whether he goes to Canada or elsewhere but go to Jesus! It's his pride and arrogant forbidding him to go to Jesus!

That's how Jeremiah wept for the pride of the Israelites.

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to know and be able to see our own pride and arrogant so that we won't make the same mistake as the Israelites did. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
