“Behold, I have put My words in your mouth.” (Jeremiah 1:9)
that we hold is not merely the work of a religious genius. Jeremiah was not a better version of a Beethoven or a Picasso. He was not inventing this word. From the beginning of his ministry, God said, “I will put My words [not your own words or the congregation’s words] in your mouth.” It is not without consequence that God spoke to Jeremiah. They are indeed His words in the prophet’s mouth. In the same way, you cannot arrogantly say to God, “I will put my words in Your mouth.”
Living in the In-Between Times
As people following Christ, we all experience stop and go, arrival and departure, life and death. We know about living in between pivotal moments. It’s easy to believe that God is not at work in the ordinary. But He is! Through my book Living in the In-Between Times, you’ll discover how God speaks to you, how you can respond, and the significance of decisive commitment to the will of God.
