broken yokes

IMG_1530Jeremiah 27-28

How Jeremiah wanted to believe that his people would have relief from their oppression.  He wanted Hananiah’s prophecy to be true, but it was not.  He wanted the yoke of slavery to be broken.  But the time was not right.  God would eventually break the yoke, but it did the people no good to proclaim to them that now was the time.  Likewise, we do the people of God no service, and we do not honor the LORD when we insist on preaching nothing but the positive and encouraging.  The whole word of God includes the fact that he judges sin, even in his own house.

LORD, we trust you, and we will wait for your deliverance. We will resist the temptation to add to what you have promised.
