Light Reflection-Jeremiah 15:16 Joy and Delight

February 2nd, 2023

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Light Reflection is from Jeremiah 15:16.

The Prophet Jeremiah said to the LORD, “When your words came, I ate them; they were my joy and my heart’s delight, for I bear your name, LORD God Almighty.”

Our attitude toward someone will greatly affect how we receive their words. If we are skeptical, we will respond with resistance. If we respect them, we will be receptive to what they have to say.

Jeremiah loved the Lord, and received His words with great joy and delight.  This is how God’s Word can affect our day today as we open the Bible to the words of life. They can guide us to a better understanding of who Jesus is so that we might be better prepared to follow Him with a faithful heart. They offer hope and encouragement for our faith. They remind us of a God who loved us so much that He sent Jesus into the world to save us from our sins.

This Light Reflection inspires us to take great joy and delight in God’s Word in the Year to Shine.
