Calling attention to what God has to say.
“The heart is more deceitful than all else
And is desperately sick.
Who can understand it?
I, the Lord, search the heart,
I test the mind,
To give to each person according to his ways,
According to the results of his deeds.” (Jeremiah 17:9-10 NASB)
Prone to deceiving self and suffering the consequences explains the condition this world is now in. It also describes God’s just decrees and our need for His all-powerful help.
“Heal me, Lord, and I will be healed.
Save me and I will be saved,
For You are my praise.” (Jeremiah 17:14 NASB)
Always good to listen to God and hear the prayers of a prophet.
