Discussion for Jeremiah 1

    Today I woke up without a plan for the day and someone from a group told me to read thus chapter. Reading this chapter really inspired me. While we were in the womb he knew the plans he had for us and his purpose for us. Whenever God calls us to do his work let us take up our responsibilities and forget about flesh. God is with us every step of the way. Never fear man nor live for man. God bless.
  • Bashon Solomon
    It's an inspiring chapter meant to encourage those in tribulation and those who don't want to follow God's command of serving Him giving petty excuses.

    As with Isaiah,it's taking me quite awhile to get thru Jeremiah.I want to be careful and distinguish between what prophecies are fulfilled as opposed to those that are for today's time. It's bogging me down in my studies.Some commentaries seem to discount history in favor of most or all prophecies for today.This time through the prophets I don't want to just put things on the shelf. Lot of prayer

    God sanctified and ordained a Prophet who's name was Jeremiah. God knew us all just as He knew Jacob and Esau and Jacob He love and Esau He hated. The only way you can love or hate someone is if you walked with them and kick the dust up to see what their made of when it comes to Freewill. Isaiah 45 vs 18 millions of years ago God created earth and all the children of God rejoiced. Job 38 vs 7.
