Ed M., writing for today’s date in “Plow New Ground:”
Powerful influence. Jeremiah was not merely blessed with new insight into truth. He was overcome by the power of it. He was not at liberty to do as he pleased—to suppress it, to utter it at his convenience, Jeremiah 6:10,11a. The word of the Lord was his master, a burning fire in his heart. He did not hold the truth. The truth held him, cf. Numbers 24:1,2,10-13. God was present. How could the prophet hide the truth when he was made trustee of the message? II Corinthians 3:4-6.
Feel the fire.
