It's good to take stock of oneself. A serious look while asking the Lord if I am not seeing or listening. Speak to me about myself so that all will be well with me.
2 “This is what the Lord says: Stand in the courtyard in front of the Temple of the Lord, and make an announcement to the people who have come there to worship from all over Judah. Give them my entire message; include every word. 3 Perhaps they will listen and turn from their evil ways. Then I will change my mind about the disaster I am ready to pour out on them because of their sins
Jeremiah is going to be talking to a room or temple full of people who come there to worship and HE IS TALKING TO THEM! Am I heading to church every Weekend yet my ways are entirely evil?
17 Then some of the wise old men stood and spoke to all the people assembled there. 18 They said, “Remember when Micah of Moresheth prophesied during the reign of King Hezekiah of Judah. He told the people of Judah,
‘This is what the Lord of Heaven’s Armies says: Mount Zion will be plowed like an open field; Jerusalem will be reduced to ruins! A thicket will grow on the heights where the Temple now stands.’[b]
19 But did King Hezekiah and the people kill him for saying this? No, they turned from their sins and worshiped the Lord. They begged him for mercy. Then the Lord changed his mind about the terrible disaster he had pronounced against them. So we are about to do ourselves great harm.”
I hope to have eyes to see and ears to hear, Lord protect me from myself when I am in denial and I submit to myself to you to do a work on me because I do want to see and hear you.
