“Will you not learn a lesson and obey my words?” declares the Lord in Jeremiah 25.
How good are we at learning lessons?
Learning involves changing. Changing our thought process which changes our attitudes which changes our behavior.
Some of us are scared of changing – not sure the change is going to be a good one.
Some of us are too stubborn to change – we think we’re just fine the way we are.
Some of us are too lazy to change – it takes an effort.
And there are plenty of other reasons and excuses we use to justify not changing.
God tells us over and over and OVER in his word that he wants to change us, renew our minds, transform us, cleanse our hearts. He wants us to learn the lessons he is giving us…..and that requires changing.
In order to do that, we have to obey him. Today, tomorrow, every day until we die.
We have to submit our will to his.
God is asking us today, “Will you not learn a lesson?”
Yes, dear Father.
