Jeremiah 30:16 says, “Therefore all those who devour you shall be devoured; and all your adversaries, every one of them, shall go into captivity; those who plunder you shall become plunder, and all who prey upon you I will make a prey.”
That verse was God’s word through Jeremiah to the children of Israel. I’m standing in it for our nation! God appointed the Chaldeans to plunder His people. It was His judgment because they turned away from Him.
Yet watch, because this is a warning to us. The Chaldeans angered God. Jeremiah 50:11 says of them, “Because you were glad, because you rejoiced, you destroyers of My heritage, because you have grown fat like a heifer threshing grain, and you bellow like bulls.”
Right now our nation is being held captive. Our freedoms are compromised. Isaiah 5:13 says, “Therefore my people have gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge…”
Here is another warning for us. The devil is seeking those he might devour. Our defense is Truth within. Our eyes and ears are being bombarded with enemy propaganda. We must keep our focus on Jesus.
2 Timothy 2:25-26 says, “In humility correcting those who are in opposition, if God perhaps will grant them repentance, so that they may know the truth, and that they may come to their senses and escape the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him to do his will.”
Our attitude comes from our thoughts. Let’s be very diligent to display the character of Christ, and not our flesh through complaining. Jesus told His disciples to watch and pray. We do well to do the same.
