Discussion for Jeremiah 43

  • Anne
    This chapter is indicative of when we ask God for guidance and his answer does not align with our plans, we tell ourselves that it cannot be from God and decide to carry on with our own plans. Help us Lord to be obedient to the Holy Spirit when He speaks to us.

    Jeremiah 43,was telling us about idols gods,which our creator send him to burn all false gods.and he was saying that God sent him to Egypt to speak the word of God to them.Jeremiah though is that we should not worship false gods,worship the true God,so we can see the kingdom of heaven,Amen.
