Jeremiah 42:3: Paralysis

Thursday, August 15, 2019

Jeremiah 42:3: Let the Lord God show us what way we should take and what we should do.

Several options lie before us; we cannot decide what to do.

Our opponents attack us: we cannot decide what to say.

We become blinded by our quickly paced life; we are deafened by too many voices that clamor for our attention.

God says: Let me show you which way to go; let me give you the words you are to speak.  Even if you are afraid to go where I call or to give voice to my love . . . you need not fear.  I will never abandon you.  All you need do is listen.  All you need do is be still.  And a voice from behind shall sound in your ears telling you when to turn to the right or to the left as my prophet Isaiah has said (30:21).

When we are too confused and too paralyzed to react let us be still . . . to listen.  Let us put our trust in God . . . to speak.  Let us believe that God lives in us . . . and act.  For in this way the paralysis we see as curse . . . becomes a transforming gift.
