God can soften any heart!
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
Jeremiah 16:1 The LORD gave me another message. He said, "Do not get married or have children in this place…”
Read - Jeremiah 16-17
The choice - a supple heart that God guided into truth and grace versus a stony heart requiring a damaging chisel. I know what I would prefer!
Lord, i give You my heart.
In a few weeks we will read Jeremiah 29 where God tells the exiled to have families in Babylon....yet He told the residents of Jerusalem not to do so...
When Jesus Mends us He gives us a softened heart rather than a stony heart of a marred person as chapter 17 indicates. Keep your heart soft to the things of God and you will Not have near the ‘hard time’.
