Jeremiah 12 - AMP

2 You have planted them, yes, they have taken root; they grow, yes, they bring forth fruit. You are near in their mouths but far from their hearts. 3 But You, O Lord, know and understand me and my devotion to You; You see me and try my heart toward You. pull out like sheep for the slaughter and devote and prepare them for the day of slaughter. 4 How long must the land mourn and the grass and herbs of the whole country wither? Through the wickedness of those who dwell in it, the beasts and the birds are consumed and are swept away , because men me, saying, He shall not see our final end. 5 If you have raced with men on foot and they have tired you out, then how can you compete with horses? And if in a land of peace where you feel secure, then what will you do in the swelling and flooding of the Jordan? 6 For even your brethren and the house of your father--even they have dealt treacherously with you; yes, even they are in full cry after you. Believe them not, though they speak fair words and promise good things to you. 7 I have forsaken My house, I have cast off My heritage; I have given the dearly beloved of My life into the hands of her enemies. 8 My heritage has become to Me like a lion in the forest; she has uttered her voice against Me; therefore I have hated her. 9 Is My heritage to Me like a speckled bird of prey? Are the birds of prey against her round about? Go, assemble all the wild beasts of the field; bring them to devour. 10 Many shepherds have destroyed My vineyard, they have trampled My portion underfoot; they have made My pleasant portion a desolate wilderness. 11 They have made it a desolation, and desolate it mourns before Me; the whole land has been made desolate, but no man lays it to heart. 12 Destroyers have come upon all the bare heights in the desert, for the sword of the Lord devours from one end of the land even to the other; no flesh has peace or can find the means to escape. 13 They have sown wheat but have reaped thorns; they have worn themselves out but without profit. And they shall be ashamed of your harvests and revenues because of the fierce and glowing anger of the Lord. 14 Thus says the Lord against all My evil neighbor who touch the inheritance which I have caused My people Israel to inherit: Behold, I will pluck them up from their land and I will pluck up the house of Judah from among them. 15 And after I have plucked them up, I will return and have compassion on them and will bring them back again, every man to his heritage and every man to his land. 16 And if these will diligently learn the ways of My people, to swear by My name, saying, As the Lord lives--even as they taught My people to swear by Baal--then will they be built up in the midst of My people. 17 But if any nation will not hear and obey, I will utterly pluck up and destroy that nation, says the Lord.

God's call for Resolution
Shared by: Shawn miller on Dec, 2014
Summary: A message about not being so concerned about things in which we have no control over in life because there are much bigger things to be concerned about. Just as we are tempted to envy the prosperity of the wicked so was Jeremiah but he learned not to.

Running with Horses
Shared by: Ajai Prakash on Jun, 2009
Summary: Perhaps you’ve run into some difficulties recently: your boss, an illness, conflicts in family. You’ve pleaded with the Lord for relief. But He may have said in response, “Toughen up. Dig in. It may get worse.” And then He asks you to “run with horses."

Running with the Horses
Shared by: David Johnston on Jul, 2007
Summary: It is easier to be a freeloader. Easier to be a leech. It is easier to relax in the embracing arms of The Average. Easier, but not better. Easier but not more significant. Easier but not more fulfilling. God has called you to a life of purpose.
