Re: Verse reading–Jeremiah 1 (Day Three)
“Today I have made you a fortified city…”  God called Jeremiah to a hard life, but he did not place him at the mercy of hostile forces.  God kept Jeremiah at the mercy of himself, which was the only safe place for Jeremiah to stand.  Will we believe that God will do the same for us if we heed his call?  Will we believe that a yes to God will only give us deeper assurance of his safekeeping?  Hardships will come—and suffering, and death, perhaps.  But we must decide whether we will actually believe that no matter what may befall us, God will keep us from ultimate harm.  This is God’s protection, this is God’s mercy, this is God’s love—against which nothing can prevail.
