Jeremiah 39:15 Now the word of the LORD came unto Jeremiah, while he was shut up in the court of the prison, saying,
I read this section and I am struck with the price God’s men paid for being just that. They were God’s men. That meant that they were locked up. They were only given water and a piece of bread for the day’s food. They were suffering to be who God wanted them to be.
But while he was in prison God still spoke to him and through him. I want God to speak to and through me. I want to be willing to pay the price to see that happen. I want God to use me.
The price is small when we consider how good God is and how He is teaching us. We want God more than we want comfort.
