Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

“My people have been lost sheep. Their shepherds have led them astray; they have turned them away on the mountains. They have gone from mountain to hill; they have forgotten their resting place.” – Jer 50:6

How can on-fire Christians become lost sheep? Jeremiah gives us the blueprint:

1) Following Bad Shepherds. Do you have strong men and women of God speaking into your life?

2) Deliberate Disobedience. We tend to turn from God on the mountaintop, and turn to Him in the valley. When you get to the mountaintop, don’t forget Who put you there!

3) Settling for Less. Why settle for a hilltop when God has promised you a mountaintop? Pursue the highest point.

4) Forgetting Rest. Relax! Stop trying so hard to please God and earn everything He has promised you. Sit back, relax, and receive.

Get under the covering of a good pastor. Listen to God’s voice. Refuse to settle for anything less than the fullness of His promise. Rest in the finished work of the Cross, knowing that Jesus already did all the work!

Prayer:

Father, stir up my desire to follow You with all my heart. I want to know You like never before!
