Pause

Re: Verse reading – Jeremiah 21:1-10, 38:1-6 (day three)
“I myself will fight against you.”  Are you sure you’ve set yourself against the thing that you should be fighting?  Our capacity to think we’re right is mighty deep.  When we measure events by our discomfort instead of the righteousness of God—the actual righteousness of God, mind you, not our interpretation of the righteousness of God—we tend to mark unpleasant things as coming from anywhere but God.  Mark Twain said it well: “Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.”  Gamaliel, speaking in Acts 5:39, said it even earlier: “But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will only find yourselves fighting against God.”
