Place of Security

I was going to write about Valentine’s Day but realize that I probably should have done that yesterday, so…

Jeremiah 17:12 – 18, is interesting.  For one thing it reads like a Psalm.  For another it sets our security as believers in the throne room of God.  It is both a reinforcement of Jeremiah’s central message of trust in God and a reminder of why Judah would not repent.  Because of their refusal to continually engage in the Word of the Lord (read that as abide – which sounds a lot like Christ’s exhortation in John 15).
As believers what is the source of our security?  What should it be?  Thoughts at DTTB.
The problem throughout Jeremiah is Judah’s refusal to trust in that throne rather they make alliances with godless nations or worse fabricate gods out of wood and stone, building materials.  That would be like us constructing a god out of drywall or 2x4s.  Reading through the rest of Jeremiah these choices do not turn out all that well for Judah.

It is a really good thing that believers today only trust in God and do not make godless alliances or construct gods for themselves out of base materials.
