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).
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.
