I am not very consistent in my personal daily devotions. I have been trying once again to do better. I have been reading the daily bread devo and doing the chapter readings to read thru the bible. It happens to be in Jeremiah and Ezekiel. Books that I have to say I have never read all the way thru it. But I have to say I am enjoying these books even though they are sometimes considered depressing. I am finding hope for those that remain faithful and a reminder to follow God's commands. I am also finding the fact that God is a super patient God. The other thing I have been pondering is if I had seen Ezekiel and Jeremiah in action would I have written them off as crazy over the top religious people or would I have listened to their words. Especially since there were other prophets around prophesying nice things. The Bible says to test the prophets. Sometimes it is difficult because their words are way in the future but the other thing is does it line up with scripture. Nothing Ezekiel and Jeremiah was saying was different than anything that God had already said. Just portrayed in a different way. I just wanted to share a few of my thoughts on a couple of books I had taken for granted.
