This Should Be Easy
Posted by Karah
LIST SOME THINGS that should be easy if you’ve done the prep work. (We’ve started the list for you.)
Cooking a meal
Playing a tough sports team
Writing a paper
Did living the Christian life make your list? Why or why not?
THINK ABOUT THAT as you read Jeremiah 19:14–20:2.
Check out verse 14. Why was Jeremiah prophesying to the people?
What did he tell the people of Jerusalem? Explain it in your own words.
If you’d heard Jeremiah’s prophecy, how would you have responded? Why?
Jeremiah did what God told him to do. What happened to him? (See v. 2.)
Have you ever faced difficult circumstances because you’ve been obedient to God’s call on your life? What happened? What did you learn?
The truth is, following God and living according to His purpose doesn’t guarantee that your life will be easy. In fact, sometimes it means that you will face difficulty and discouragement.
List any difficult situations you’re facing right now because of your commitment to follow Christ. Pray about them, asking God to remind you of His presence and power in them.
WHO IN YOUR LIFE is facing a difficult situation or dealing with discouragement because he or she chose to be faithful to God? List their names and a couple of ways you’ll encourage them this week.
