“I’m sticking with God (I say it over and over). He’s all I’ve got left.”
Have you ever mailed a letter only to have it returned because the stamp fell off? You clearly remember addressing it, affixing the stamp and mailing it. Somewhere in the extensive delivery process the stamp became detached. The carrier refused to deliver the letter & it was returned. If the stamp had remained stuck everything would’ve been good. But separation caused the delivery to become unstuck not just the stamp.
Today’s verse let’s us know about sticking to God. The prophet Jeremiah can’t emphasize enough how important this is. He says it over & over so that we’ll get it. Jeremiah had discovered that he couldn’t stick to anything else in life that would deliver besides God. If he became separated nothing in his life would work. When Jeremiah remained attached & immovable to God everything arrived just as planned.
Why live life unstuck from God. When we are separated things don’t go well. We keep being returned to life’s starting point just like our returned letter. We keep doing the same cycle over & over again because we’re unstuck. This doesn’t only affect us it also affects everyone around us. It affects our family, friends & our relationships. But when we stick with God through everything, life goes so much better.
This week let’s get sticky with God. Let’s make God our only option in every situation. Let’s stay stuck to Him no matter how difficult it gets. Let’s stay stuck even when things desperately try to separate us. Let’s ensure we can be fully delivered into our future stuck to our God. He will never fail or forsake us [Deuteronomy 31:8]. He is with us, will keep us & will deliver us to our land of promise [Genesis 28:15]
