Daily Devotional
October 1
 
Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying, Go and cry in the ears of Jerusalem, saying, Thus saith the LORD; I remember thee, the kindness of thy youth, the love of thine espousals, when thou wentest after me in the wilderness, in a land that was not sown.
Jeremiah 2:1-2
 
The first part of Jeremiah’s message is simply summarized in the word, “remember.”

“Remember how it was when you first loved Me,” the Lord says to His people through Jeremiah - “even when the land was yet wilderness, before it was prosperous.”

I think of the words of Jesus to the church at Ephesus when He says, “I know all your good works, all your activities, all the ministry you’re doing. But I have something against you. You’ve left your first love. Your love for Me has diminished. Remember from whence thou art fallen” (see Revelation 2:2-5).

Can you remember a time when you loved the Lord more than you do now? Was there a time when your love for Him was real and fresh and vital? Have things changed? Are devotions a drag? Is church a drudgery? Are the things of God a burden? “Remember,” God would say, “how it was when you really sought Me. They may have been wilderness times, difficult times, but you loved Me and were wholly committed to Me.”
 
This Daily Devotional is an excerpt from the book "A Day of Feasting" by Pastor Jon. "A Day of Feasting" is a collection of 365 short devotions from the Old Testament books of Joshua through Malachi.  If you would like your own copy of "A Day of Feasting" you may click here to go to the SearchLight Store
