Jeremiah 19:5 They have built also the high places of Baal, to burn their sons with fire for burnt offerings unto Baal, which I commanded not, nor spake it, neither came it into my mind:
This verse is another that shows God responding to man and what he does. They built their places of worship. They burned their children as a sacrifice. God never wanted them to do that. He never even thought about it.
That is a shocking assertion. He never commanded it is understandable and expected. It never entered His mind is wild. Of course, He knows everything. But this verse would indicate that He didn’t plan the sin. He didn’t want then sin. He didn’t indirectly cause them to sin. He didn’t predestine them to this sin. They did it. He didn’t plan it, command it, or even think of it!
This is not the first verse you have seen in this devotional that has taught the same truth. Don’t blame it on God. Don’t try to act like you are not responsible. God said here that He didn’t command it nor did it even enter into His mind!
