Any word from the LORD?

Then Zedekiah the king sent, and took him out: and the king asked him secretly in his house, and said, Is there any word from the LORD? And Jeremiah said, There is: for, said he, thou shalt be delivered into the hand of the king of Babylon. Jeremiah 37:17

The prophet Jeremiah was accused of being a traitor and put in prison. He was in prison a few days when the king came to speak to him

The king speaks to him in secret and asks, “Is there any word from the LORD?” Jeremiah does not wait or hesitate but boldly answers the king. Yes, you will be delivered to the king of Babylon.

When was the last time someone asked you if you had a word from the LORD? All knew Jeremiah was a prophet and had direct communication with God. We are not prophets, however if you have received Jesus as Savior you are a child of the King. We have direct communication to God.

Do others know you are a Christian?
Do others “see” you differently as a light in the world?
Do others come to you to get a “word from the LORD”?

Let’s start today by being a shiny light in a dark world. Let others see your light. Maybe someone will come and ask you something about the Lord. Will you be ready?

Have a blessed day,
