While you were doing these wicked things, says the LORD, I spoke to you about it repeatedly, but you would not listen. I called out to you, but you refused to answer. (Jeremiah 7:13 NLT)
God told Jeremiah that the people refused to listen. They refused to spend time with the Lord. Notice that God initiated the contact, but their sins kept them from responding. God is also calling us to spend time with Him each day. Don’t have time? Pray that God will wake you up earlier in the morning. Putting God first will make all the difference in preparing you for the challenges of the day.
Lord, please wake me up early so I have more time with you before my day starts. Amen.
