I was reading Jeremiah 18 yesterday and just felt God saying that we need to need to stop going round in circles and making the same mistakes over and over again.

Jeremiah 18:11- 12 – Now therefore say to the people of Judah and those living in Jerusalem, ‘This is what the LORD says: Look! I am preparing a disaster for you and devising a plan against you. So turn from your evil ways, each one of you, and reform your ways and your actions.’ But they will reply, ‘It’s no use. We will continue with our own plans; we will all follow the stubbornness of our evil hearts.

God’s word is exactly that, his word.  His word encourages us, instructs us and builds us up and before we can walk closely with him we need to give up on our own stubborn ways.  Perhaps today is a good day to start looking at our own lives to see what we continue to cling on to even though it is not in God’s plan for our lives.  What do we need to confess to God and turn from??
