Read Jeremiah 36:1 through 37:21

At God’s command, Jeremiah dictated to his trusted friend Baruch all that God had spoken to him concerning Judah. His words were written on a scroll and read aloud to all the people. The king was so angry that he burned the scrolls himself.

After the king burned the scroll containing the words that Baruch had written at Jeremiah’s dictation, the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah: “Take another scroll and write on it all the words that were on the first scroll, which Jehoiakim king of Judah burned up” (Jeremiah 36:27–28).

The king of Judah and his officials went to great lengths to destroy the message of God. Neither God nor Jeremiah was deterred. God simply gave Jeremiah new instructions: Write everything again.

There will be those who attempt to stop you from accomplishing God’s will in your life. They are no match for God, and they should be no deterrent to you. God’s plans will prevail.

Thought for Today: Man cannot destroy what God has established.

Prayer is our link with God, an awesome avenue through which we can express praise and adoration to Him for His goodness, love, and mercy; and an avenue through which we can voice our petitions and concerns. God's Word assures us that we can "come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need" (Hebrews 4:16).

Prayer also moves the hand of God on behalf of needs and circumstances in our church, our families, our community, nation, and world. Take time to pray and intercede for these areas as God leads you. Become part of a prayer group and intercede with others in times of corporate prayer. As you seek God's help, expect reports of great victory to follow as God answers prayer.
