"How is the gold become dim! how is the most fine gold changed! the stones of the sanctuary are poured out in the top of every street. The precious sons of Zion, comparable to fine gold, how are they esteemed as earthen pitchers, the work of the hands of the potter!" (Lamentations 4:1-2)
Today’s Morsel: Throughout scripture, the saint’s faith is compared to gold. Peter said, “That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ (1 Peter 1:7). Jeremiah asked the question, “How is the gold become dim! how is the most fine gold changed!” When our faith in God cannot be seen, it is dim or darken. What are some things that can hinder our faith from being clearly seen? James said a lack of wisdom (James 1:5-8). Paul said it’s because we refuse to mix it with the word when we hear it (Hebrews 4:2). And Jesus said, because of our unbelief (Matthew 17:20). Therefore, if we want our faith to burn bright and shine forth, we must get wisdom, mix it with the word of God and believe what God says.
Sing: Faith can move mountains. Mountains of fear and of doubt. Faith can move mountains, so why don’t you try your faith out.
Thought For Today: Faith is rooted in faithfulness.
