TEXT: Jeremiah 4:19 – 31

19 My bowels, my bowels! I am pained at my very heart; my heart maketh a noise in me; I cannot hold my peace, because thou hast heard, O my soul, the sound of the trumpet, the alarm of war. 20 Destruction upon destruction is cried; for the whole land is spoiled: suddenly are my tents spoiled, and my curtains in a moment. 21 How long shall I see the standard, and hear the sound of the trumpet? 22 For my people is foolish, they have not known me; they are sottish children, and they have none understanding: they are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge. 

23 I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the heavens, and they had no light. 24 I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly. 25 I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled. 26 I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of the LORD, and by his fierce anger. 27 For thus hath the LORD said, The whole land shall be desolate; yet will I not make a full end.

28 For this shall the earth mourn, and the heavens above be black: because I have spoken it, I have purposed it, and will not repent, neither will I turn back from it. 29 The whole city shall flee for the noise of the horsemen and bowmen; they shall go into thickets, and climb up upon the rocks: every city shall be forsaken, and not a man dwell therein. 

30 And when thou art spoiled, what wilt thou do? Though thou clothest thyself with crimson, though thou deckest thee with ornaments of gold, though thou rentest thy face with painting, in vain shalt thou make thyself fair; thy lovers will despise thee, they will seek thy life. 31 For I have heard a voice as of a woman in travail, and the anguish as of her that bringeth forth her first child, the voice of the daughter of Zion, that bewaileth herself, that spreadeth her hands, saying, Woe is me now! for my soul is wearied because of murderers.

God through Jeremiah lamented about the condition of his nation and today is bringing an outcry against the whole world. The passage x-rays the occurrences of today in almost all parts of the world. All these cause much pain/sorrow in the heart of God as we see in verse 19 which talks of the alarm of war. Today, the things that cause God pain/sorrow include our sins, rebellion, disobedience, abominations and desolations in high and low places including in the household of God. In Genesis 6:3, God declared "My spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is indeed flesh, yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years." This declaration led to the destruction of the first world. The sound of Jesus' return is very audible. 

The end time is around the corner. This is marked by wars and rumours of war, destruction, plundering, violence, terrorism, kidnapping, and many more signs. Peace generally is lacking in the world today. In the face of this, Jesus is our solace.
The issues above arise from the condition of the heart. To curb them, Paul enjoined us in Philippians 4:8-9 to think on the eight virtues mentioned. From Matthew 11:28-30, we see that only in Jesus can one find rest for his soul. Let us not leave God in pain or sorrow of heart by refusing to change our ways.

Prayer: Lord, give me peace in the face of terrorism and violence today. Let the peace that passes all understanding be my portion today.
