Bible Reading: Jeremiah 45-48

Scripture

Since you trust in your deeds and riches, you too will be taken captive, and Chemosh will go into exile, together with his priests and officials.

“We have heard of Moab’s pride—how great is her arrogance!—of her insolence, her pride, her conceit and the haughtiness of her heart.

Moab will be destroyed as a nation because she defied the LORD. (Jeremiah 48:7, 29, 42)

Observation

Moab was in serious trouble! Wealth and pride destroyed their perceived need for God, and destruction was the result.

Application

As I have often journaled, USAmerica has so many traits of wicked nations portrayed in the prophets. We have been a very powerful, prosperous, and proud nation. We are just beginning to realize we are not the world superpower we once were, instead buying our stuff from China, accumulating debt we can never repay, educating children in failing schools, and thinking we don’t need God…or anything…or anyone!

Prayer

LORD have mercy on the United States of America.
