He Will Reign, by Tianna (Mallett) Williams
This morning when I awoke, the “now word” on my heart was to find a writing from the past about “coming out of Babylon.” I found this one, first published exactly three years ago on October 4th, 2017! The words in this are everything that is on my heart at this hour, including the opening Scripture from Jeremiah. I have updated it with current links. I pray this will be as edifying, reassuring, and challenging for you as it is for me this Sunday morning… Remember, you are loved.
THERE are times when the words of Jeremiah pierce my soul as though they are my own. This week is one of those times.
Whenever I speak, I must cry out, violence and outrage I proclaim; the word of the Lord has brought me reproach and derision all day long. I say I will not mention him, I will no longer speak in his name. But then it is as if fire is burning in my heart, imprisoned in my bones; I grow weary holding back, I cannot! (Jeremiah 20:7-9)
