“Behold, I have put My words in your mouth.” (Jeremiah 1:9)

The Bible that we hold is not merely the work of a religious genius. Jeremiah was not a better version of a Beethoven or a Picasso. He was not inventing this word. From the beginning of his ministry, God said, “I will put My words [not your own words or the congregation’s words] in your mouth.” It is not without consequence that God spoke to Jeremiah. They are indeed His words in the prophet’s mouth. In the same way, you cannot arrogantly say to God, “I will put my words in Your mouth.”

Live your life under God’s protection

When King David was running for his life, living in caves, he never lost his faith that he was protected.

Why? Because he knew God had his back – and He’s got yours, too.

So when times of trouble come into your life, remember that “Where is God?” might be the question that’s on your lips, but the answer is always: right where He’s always been. Working for the good of those who love Him, even when you can’t see it or feel it.

Pastor West’s new series, Living Under God’s Protection, shows you how you can live under God’s mighty shield, secure and safe through all of life’s storms and challenges.

And we’d love to send you a copy today as our thanks for your gift to share the message of God’s all-powerful, protective love with others who really need it in their lives.

So give now to help share God’s love – and be encouraged!
