Be Prepared to Listen and to Accept the Word of God

Read the Bible in a year by reading Jeremiah 37-39 today.
The wicked king of Judah, Zedekiah, said to Jeremiah, “I will ask you something. Hide nothing from me.” So, Jeremiah said to Zedekiah,
“If I declare it to you, will you not surely put me to death? And if I give you advice, you will not listen to me” (Jeremiah 38:15).
The prophet knew from experiences with Zedekiah that the king would either persecute the prophet or not listen to what he said. The king put on an appearance of openness, but the prophet saw right through it. Perhaps the king was hoping that the word of God would be different this time. However, God does not change. The truth does not change.
If you want someone to tell you what the Scripture says, are you prepared for the answer?
