Daily Devotional Details


“Pour out your wrath on the nations that do not acknowledge you, on the peoples who do not call on your name. For they have devoured Jacob; they have devoured him completely and destroyed his homeland.” Jeremiah 10:25 (NIV)

God has preserved passages like this because you need to know that when your heart is broken and your dreams are shattered, He wants you to bring the pain, the disappointment, and the questions to Him.

When a relationship comes under strain, you need to talk with the other person directly, and Jeremiah gives us a wonderful example of this. Jeremiah honestly confesses his thoughts and feelings to God.

Jeremiah said some terrible things, but at least he said them to God. He had an authentic relationship with God. It may have been a relationship under strain, but it was a relationship, nonetheless.

The best thing to do with a broken heart is to pour it out in the presence of God. When doubts arise because your hopes have been disappointed, you need to honestly confess them to God.

The Psalms are full of honest expressions of disappointed hopes, unanswered questions, and unresolved pain, and God has preserved them in His Word because these are part of the Christian experience.

Rather than pretending and telling God what you think He wants to hear, tell Him the truth about your struggles, broken dreams, and regrets. In this way, you can come to know your true self and receive true grace to help in your time of need.

Are you struggling with a broken heart? Are you honestly confessing your doubts to God? If you are having difficulty doing this, read through the Psalms and ask God to give you words to tell Him the truth right now.
