NKJV Jeremiah 2:13
13 “For My people have committed two evils:
They have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters,
And hewn themselves cisterns—broken cisterns that can hold no water.
There are many trials and tribulations that come into our lives. It is important to understand that we have Jesus, who is a refuge and strong tower that we can run to and be safe. We have the ability to have a protection over our lives. We have the ability to be blessed because God wants to bless us. The choice falls on us. What will we choose? God’s way or our way?
God is good and has good things in store for us (Jeremiah 29:11). We need to stay in that covering that God has given us which is Jesus Christ! We get out of the covering when we turn from God and when we try in our own strength.
Our parents many times will advise us because they are trying to protect us. Some times we don’t believe it and we try our own way. When we try it our own way we find out why our parents were advising us a certain way. It is important to break through our hard head and listen to what God is saying to us.
1 – We can’t leave God
There is no covering and without covering there is no protection and strength.
2 – We can’t try in our own strength
We will fail every time but when we get our strength from Christ we can do all things. (Philippians 4:13)
