free indeed

IMG_1540Jeremiah 34

It appears that there was some kind of attempt at revival among Zedekiah’s kingdom, and God had stayed the hand of Nebuchadnezzar.  The people set free their Hebrew slaves, which is something they knew they should have done.  They had not been following God’s covenant that required the freeing of all slaves after seven years.  They decided to free their slaves, and God honored that.  But then they took them back into slavery.  So, the LORD proclaimed liberty to the sword, pestilence and famine.  Those destroyers were set free to destroy Jerusalem.

LORD, give us the faithfulness to make good our promises, to change, and stay changed.
