Chapter-a-Day Jeremiah 25

The verdict of God-of-the-Angel-Armies on all this: “Because you have refused to listen to what I’ve said, I’m stepping in. Jeremiah 25:8 (MSG)

My experience: Whenever a person of authority has had to “step in” because those under his or her authority has not done what they are supposed to do, it’s not a good thing.

When mom or dad “step in” because their child refused to do what he was told. [not that I would know anything about that]

When a teacher “steps in” because the class willingly refused to follow directions.

When a coach “steps in” because the team did not follow his or her clear instructions.

When a boss “steps in” because the employee(s) refused to do what was expected.

It’s never a pretty picture when the authorities “step in.” All the more reason to take it seriously when it’s God who’s threatening to step in.
