Jeremiah 13:11

Jesus

Jeremiah 13:11 "For as the loincloth clings to the waist of a man, so I made the whole house of Israel and the whole house of Judah cling to me, declares the Lord, that they might be for me a people, a name, a praise, and a glory, but they would not listen."

Everything created is created for a reason. Just as the loincloth was created to cling to the waist of a man, so to was man created to cling to God. He formed and fashioned us to be dependent upon Him alone. Like Israel, we become independent and think we can go about this life on our own. That's why we fall into idolatry because we were created to cling. It's our rebellious heart that will keep us from clinging to Jesus. Understand this, you will cling to something may it be the Lord alone. He is the only one that can satisfy the desire of your soul. Cling to Him today with all your might, it's what you were created to do!

Father, we thank You for putting a void within us that only You can satisfy. May we hold fast to You and live in the true peace only You can provide. Forgive us for clinging to other things and protect us from letting go we pray in Jesus name, amen.

Jeremiah 17:14
