You are the Pastures of God’s Truth

Jeremiah 14:6

Wild donkeys stand on the barren heights and pant like jackals; their eyesight fails for lack of pasture.” 

7 Although our sins testify against us, O LORD, do something for the sake of your name. For our backsliding is great; we have sinned against you. 8 O Hope of Israel, its Savior in times of distress, 

why are you like a stranger in the land, like a traveler who stays only a night? 9 Why are you like a man taken by surprise, like a warrior powerless to save? You are among us, O LORD, and we bear your name; 

do not forsake us! 

You are the Pastures of God’s Truth

This word of Jeremiah could well speak of the spiritual condition of our nation today.  As a nation we have lost the spiritual vision of who we are.  Our backsliding is great and many have forsaken the name of the Lord.  As a result the pastures of spiritual provision have dried up for many.    A spiritual famine has beset those who have gone in their own way and embraced the secular viewpoint of society today.  There is a leanness of soul that has come upon many today.  Many have become disillusioned with religion and the tele-evangelism of yesterday when they saw the greediness of men’s hearts revealed in the name of God. 

There is a remnant that knows their God and who hold fast the faith.  It is this remnant that has preserved this nation up to this hour.  Their prayers and intercession have not gone unheard.  God has been preparing a people for such a time as this that they may be the pasture in the midst of a spiritual wilderness.   They are the streams of water that will provide the knowledge and life of God to those who are now seeking for real truth and meaning in their lives. 

People of God prepare yourselves for all that the Lord has poured within you over the years.  Those who are in spiritual famine He will move upon to bring them to drink from the wells of salvation.   You are about to be poured out for a people that are hungry for the truth and who the Spirit of the Lord is drawing.  There is a field ripe unto harvest and we are the laborers sent forth to gather in the harvest.  

The Lord has not forsaken His name and He will show Himself mighty among those who hold it fast in their hearts.  Come and refresh yourselves in the Lord for we are His people, called forth by His name to show the way of salvation and righteousness.

Blessings,
