TAKE TIME: June 30 - July 5, 2014 Schedule

Introduction: Last week God told Jeremiah how to answer if false prophets confronted him. Obviously, that meant that false prophets were going to confront him! This week we will see instances of that happening. We will also read the letter that Jeremiah wrote to those who had already been taken to Babylon as captives in the nation's earlier confrontations with Nebuchadnezzer. And we will read some great passages of hope! After all the depressing pronouncements in the earlier chapters of Jeremiah it will be nice to read some good news for a change!

  • Monday - Jeremiah chapter 27
  • Tuesday - Jeremiah chapter 28
  • Wednesday - Jeremiah chapter 29
  • Thursday - Jeremiah chapter 30
  • Friday - Jeremiah chapter 31
  • Saturday - Jeremiah chapter 32
Memory Verse

The LORD hath appeared of old unto me saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee..  Jeremiah 31:3

Prayer Journal (ACTS)
  • Adoration - Praise God that He loves eternally! We may talk about it, but God does it!
  • Confession - Ask God to reveal hidden sin in your life and then confess it.
  • Thanksgiving - Thank God for any answers to your prayers.
  • Supplication - What are your prayer requests this week? List them for future reference so that you can see how God answers.
Search the Scriptures

Look for references for each of the following:
  • Promises that God made and to whom He made them. Do they apply to you?
  • References that either refer to or infer something about future events.
  • What does this passage teach about Jesus?
  • Commandments that God made and to whom He made them. Do they apply to you?
Putting the Word into Action

As bad as the situation was for Judah God still had Jeremiah deliver some messages of hope to those who needed to hear it. Those messages were the Old Testament equivalent of Romans 8:28. Perhaps you know someone who is going through some hard times. Without spouting platitudes or making empty promises, do whatever you can to cheer them up this week. Even people whose situations cannot get better could use encouragement to persevere no matter what.

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.
