Prayer Challenge

I want to ask you to say this prayer out loud, if possible.

“I belong to God. I am a holy vessel because I have the Holy Spirit of the Living God. The Lord of Heaven and earth has said to me; “I declare you holy!”. I commit to start believing what He says. I AM HOLY! Remind me daily, Spirit of the Living God, to treat myself as holy, open my eyes to every scheme of The Enemy to treat me as if I'm not. You, God, are Holy. Your word is the truth. This day Father, I chose to believe you! I ask this in the mighty name of your son Jesus Christ, who died on a cross for me so that I could be a coheir to the kingdom of God. Amen”

Sallee's Six: Jeremiah's Unpopular Message

Jeremiah was a messenger with a very unwelcome message. However, he remained faithful to God and preached a message that brought him nothing but trouble from his fellow Judeans! Political power and the desire to "fit in" with the surrounding countries led Judah to compromise their faith and break their covenant with God. The compromise involved worshiping other gods, in addition to, their one God. God commanded Jeremiah to remind his people that :
1. He (God)demanded faithfulness and obedience
2.  A new covenant was coming (Jesus).

Jeremiah 11:4

...the terms I commanded your forefathers when I brought them out of Egypt, out of the iron smelting furnace. I said,"Obey me and do everything I command you, and you will be my people, and I will be your God.

Jeremiah 31: 31-34

31  "The time is coming," declares the Lord, "when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah.

32 It will not be like the covenant I made with their forefathers when I took them by the hand to lead them out of Egypt,because they broke my covenant, though I was a husband to them, declares the LORD.

33 "This is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after that time," declares the LORD. "I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people.

34 No longer will a man teach his neighbor, or a man his brother, saying, 'Know the LORD,' because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest," declares the LORD. "I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more."

Jeremiah 33:3

'Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.'
