Asking for advice that you won’t heed is futile.
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
Jeremiah 42:2-3 - "Please pray to the LORD your God for us. As you can see, we are only a tiny remnant compared to what we were before. 3 Pray that the LORD your God will show us what to do and where to go.”
Read - Jeremiah 42-44
When we ask God for His help and His guidance and then do not follow it we are showing pride. God doesn’t bless pride but seeks a humble heart who will follow Him. Are there any parts of your life that need a dose of humility so that you can listen and follow God better?
Lord, give me a humble heart and a willingness to listen to You!

Jeremiah 44:7 asks this great question, “Why are you destroying yourselves?” Yes, there are times it doesn’t even seem like our enemy has to work at Marring and Misleading us. However, he is certainly responsible for the deceiving and dividing that leads us down the path of destruction. Hear God’s heart in that question…He wants us to follow Him down the path of life and we are proudly going the wrong way. He cares enough to call us out. Will we hear?
