August 8, 2018: SOAP #3170    Jeremiah 1-2; John 10

Scripture:  Jeremiah (NIV) 1:9 Then the LORD reached out his hand and touched my mouth and said to me, “Now, I have put my words in your mouth.

Observation:    When “the LORD reached out his hand and touched his mouth” He was letting the prophet know that it was now God's mouth.   The LORD was claiming ownership.   It would be very important that the prophet remember this moment.   His mouth belonged to the Lord.   It was to be used for the LORD's benefit and glory.

Application:   May we dedicate our mouths to the LORD!   'Let the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be acceptable to you.' Psalm 19:14

Prayer:      Lord, I dedicate my mouth to you. Holy Spirit, today remind me of this short prayer. Amen
