Led to Lament // No Flesh Has Peace // Jeremiah 12:1-13 // Oct 26 2014
Why does evil thrive? This is the question Jeremiah asks of his righteous God. And it is the question people like you and I have been asking ever since. God's answer to Jeremiah is startling. He gives no defense for himself but instead warns that it will only get worse. Indeed, he speaks of impending desolation for all the land and all flesh. God seems intent on using the ways of the wicked to make war on his creation and on his creatures. Not even the righteous will be spared.
