Today you should read: Jeremiah 47
Today’s passage is short and not so full of hope and happiness. I would hate to have been a Philistine during that time. God tells Jeremiah to proclaim what is about to happen to the Philistines, and he does. God’s plan seems to be to completely wipe out the Philistines here. The last two verses are what really stuck out to me. Here we can glean a principle to hang onto for today. That principle is:
When God commands something it will happen and it will be completed.
Now, in this particular passage the news is grim but the adverse outcome is also true. So, when we read passages like Philippians 1:6 they remind us that we can be confident that God finishes what He starts. So, today’s principle, though it is couched in a story of judgment, is also true for believers and we can find hope and confidence in that.
