Jeremiah 49:25 How is the city of praise not left, The city of my joy!
Now Damascus is destroyed. The city that had been so great couldn’t stand against God. God had judged them for their mistreatment and brutality against His people. The strongest cities will not stand against the judgment of the Lord.
I am afraid that like these people we never expect anything bad to happen to our country or our cities. We want to see success and blessing. We expect it. People that do not honor God can expect to see their city destroyed, empty, and the joy gone.
