Continual Communion with God

Photo by Luis Quintero ‘Then the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah’ - we read this sentence time and time again throughout the book of Jeremiah. He was a prophet chosen by God to be one and so we are not taken by surprise when we come across those words. But Jeremiah was after... Continue Reading →

A Heart of Obedience

Photo by David Frampton In Jeremiah 35, we read about a group of people called the Rekabites, whom God uses as an example of obedience and a rebuke to the people of Judah. Who are the Rekabites?

Truth or False

Photo by Magda Ehlers Jeremiah 28 details Jeremiah being confronted by a false prophet Hananiah. Hananiah stands in the temple of the Lord, before the priests and all the people and prophesises a very different future to what Jeremiah had been saying.  In verse 2-3, we read Hananiah say “This is what the Lord Almighty, the God...

Bound to God

In those moments, clarity of who truly is the solid rock on which we stand comes into focus. Psalms are... Continue Reading →

Little or Great Faith

Mathew 17:14-20 “When they came to the crowd, a man approached Jesus and knelt before him. “Lord, have mercy on my son,” he said. “He has seizures and is suffering greatly.
