A Willingness to Change
19 I am now giving you the choice between life and death, between God’s blessing and God’s curse, and I call heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Choose life.
I thank You for this new day and for all that will take place within it. I pray Lord that you will guide my steps, my thoughts and my actions so that You may be glorified in all I say and do. Thank You Lord for the rest and restoration You have provided me overnight and for the incredible plans You have for me today. Give me wisdom and discernment Lord, as this day is filled with choices and decisions, help me to make the right ones, help me Lord to be sensitive to Your Holy Spirit’s prompting that I will walk in alignment with You today. Lord, help me in my conversations that I may use the right words and speak life and hope into the lives of my children. Help me Lord that I may be light and salt into the lives of everyone I encounter today. And Lord may You receive all the praise, the honor, and the glory in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Jeremiah’s Sorrow for His People
19 The pain! I can’t bear the pain!
My heart! My heart is beating wildly!
I can’t keep quiet;
I hear the trumpets
and the shouts of battle.
20 One disaster follows another;
the whole country is left in ruins.
Suddenly our tents are destroyed;
their curtains are torn to pieces.
21 How long must I see the battle raging
and hear the blasts of trumpets?
22 The LORD says, “My people are stupid;
they don’t know me.
They are like foolish children;
they have no understanding.
They are experts at doing what is evil,
but failures at doing what is good.”
