Re: Verse reading – Jeremiah 36 (Day Five)
How many times have we read “The Word of the Lord came to Jeremiah (me)” so far in this book of the bible? My calculations are 26. What great comfort it must have been to Jeremiah for the Lord to continually guide and shape His thoughts, ministry, and message. How clearly, during these moments of chapter 36, he must have understood where the real strength and power of “The Word of the Lord” resides.
“The Bible is the written word of God, and because it is written it is confined and limited by the necessities of ink and paper and leather. The Voice of God, however, is alive and free as the sovereign God is free. ‘The words that I speak unto you, they are spirit and they are life.’ The life is in the speaking words. God’s word in the Bible can have power only because it corresponds to God’s word in the universe. It is the present Voice which makes the written Word all-powerful.- A.W. Tozer
