Jeremiah 49
Focus Verse: “Yet afterward, I will restore the fortunes of the Ammonites,” declares the Lord. (6)

God gives Jeremiah messages for the nations of Ammon, Edom, Damascus, Kedar and Hazor, and Elam. After disaster, he promises to restore some of them; but for others, it will be utter destruction.

Jeremiah 13
Focus Verse: These wicked people, who refuse to listen to my words, who follow the stubbornness of their hearts and go after other gods to serve and worship them, will be like this belt—completely useless! (10)

When we choose not to obey God and refuse to worship Him, our lives become useless because we are living outside of the will and without the help of the One Who makes living even possible.

Jeremiah 22
Focus Verse: He defended the cause of the poor and needy, and so all went well. Is that not what it means to know me?” declares the Lord. (16)

To know God means to know to do right. God expects His people to do what is just because He is just. He has given us a duty to rescue those who are being oppressed, to do no wrong and commit no violence, and to defend the cause of the poor and needy. If we obey His commands all will go well with us.

Hebrews 3
Focus Verse: So we see that they were not able to enter, because of their unbelief. (19)

A generation of Israelites were unable to enter into the Promised Land because of their disobedience and lack of belief. They were made to wander in the wilderness for forty years and eventually perished. Unbelief in God is a sign that one lacks faith that God will keep His word. And as we shall read later in this book, it is impossible to please God without faith.
