TODAY’S TOPIC: COMPROMISED FOUNDATION
TEXT: Jeremiah 11:1-14
KEY VERSE: “They are turned back to the iniquities of their forefathers, which refuse to hear my words; and they went after other gods to serve them: the house of Israel and the house of Judah have broken my covenant which I made with their fathers” – (Jeremiah 11:10).
MESSAGE: DCLM Daily Manna 26 September 2019 Devotional
Foundations are critical to the structural integrity and longevity of any building. A compromised foundation portends grave danger and calamity. “If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?” (Psalm 11:3). The most critical foundation one should build his life upon is the word of God. Its reliability is sure and it helps the believer to constantly maintain stability in his walk with God.
Our passage reveals the controversy God had with the men of Judah and Jerusalem. This stems from the fact that the children of Judah wanted the fulfilment of God’s promises but lacked the will to do what He commanded them. He instructed the prophet not to pray for them because He would not hear.
This is quite similar to the situation in our contemporary society where there is an upsurge of religious activities, prayer houses, proliferation of “so called prophets” dishing out “visions” for the people in the midst of their terrible decadence and moral turpitude. Our society is filled with men and women who speak so much about God, pray so much to God but their hearts are far from Him. God is not interested in sacrifices without obedience.
As parents and leaders, we must strive to show good examples and leave worthy legacies for the younger generations. The undoing of Judah was the compromised foundation of disobedience left by “their forefathers” which they also followed.

The key to revival and positive change in our land, therefore, is not so much on how frequent we are at praying mountains, visits to prophets or holding of vigils but in simply obeying the word of God.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Obedience brings the blessings.
DAILY BIBLE READING: Proverbs 30-31
