• The Lord Saves His Servants Devotional

    Jeremiah 39

    John Calvin comments that the Holy Spirit intends to show us by rewarding Ebedmelech that we should “give [the brethren] help as far as we can, and not to shun…any dangers, which we may thereby incur….The reward given to the Ethiopian is set before us, so that we may know, that though nothing is to be hoped from men, when we are kind and liberal, yet we shall not lose our labor, for God is rich enough, who can render to us more than can be expected from the whole world.” View Resource

  • The Warning to those Left Behind Devotional

    Jeremiah 42

    Walking by faith and not by sight is difficult at times. But that does not excuse us from obeying that call, especially when the Lord has recently shown Himself faithful to His Word. Johanan and other Judahites did not believe God’s Word through Jeremiah even though they had seen the Lord’s promise to devastate Jerusalem come true (Jer. 43:1–7). How much more, then, are we to be held culpable if we fail to believe God now that we have seen His promises come true in Christ Jesus? View Resource

  • Trouble in Egypt Devotional

    Jeremiah 44

    Matthew Henry comments on today’s passage: “God can find his people, with the visits of his grace, wherever they are; and, when his ministers are bound, yet the word of the Lord is not bound. The spirit of prophecy was not confined to the land of Israel.” The Lord acted in grace to continue speaking to his sinful people in Egypt, just as He continues to speak to us in Scripture when we have sinned. Yet that must not make us complacent, for we too will be disciplined if we do not heed His voice. View Resource

  • Egypt’s Judgment and Israel’s Salvation Devotional

    Jeremiah 46:13–28

    Past faithlessness on our part or the part of our ancestors does not mean that God cannot use us today. When we repent and trust in Him, the Lord can use what is otherwise ugly to create something beautiful and pleasing to Him for His glory. This is good news indeed, for it reminds us of His never-changing faithfulness to His people in every generation. Let us be faithful to His call this day no matter what we have done in years past.

  • The Fall of Babylon Devotional

    Jeremiah 50:1–20

    Much of Jeremiah is concerned with God’s use of Babylon to judge His people. In that judgment, we can see evidence of an occasion when the wicked prospered. Yet we also see that the prosperity was not evidence that the Lord was pleased with Babylon. This is an important principle for us to remember when we see others succeeding even though they are wicked. Their success, however real it may appear, is only temporary—just as Babylon’s was.

  • David’s Throne Endures Devotional

    Jeremiah 52

    Jehoiachin’s exaltation was a sign of hope, albeit a sign that was hard to see. In our individual circumstances, sometimes the only sign of hope we have is one that is flickering and barely visible. However, we have one sign of hope that is clear and powerful—one infallible sign that our ultimate future is one of hope no matter what today looks like. Jesus Christ, risen from the dead, proves God’s faithfulness to David and the rest of His people forever. View Resource
