The laws of the Universe.

“Everyone who is seriously involved in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that a spirit is manifest in the laws of the Universe—a spirit vastly superior to that of man, and one in the face of which we with our modest powers must feel humble.” Albert Einstein

He knows all.

God sees all. He knows all. As human beings, we can hardly contain two thoughts at the same time. God is also omnipresent (see Psa. 139:7–10). He is nothing like we imagine Him to be.

Fearing the Lord.

Zedekiah held the fate of his people in his unbelieving hands. How different things might have been if he had been a king who feared the Lord.

2 Kings 24:18Zedekiah was twenty-one years old when he became king, and he reigned eleven years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Hamutal the daughter of Jeremiah of Libnah. 19He also did evil in the sight of the Lord, according to all that Jehoiakim had done. 20For because of the anger of the Lord this happened in Jerusalem and Judah, that He finally cast them out from His presence.Then Zedekiah rebelled against the king of Babylon.

Cain’s wife.

With only Adam and Eve as the only parents of all humanity, Cain and Abel, then, must have married their sisters. All of the first-generation siblings married each other in order to populate the earth. At that time there was no law against incest. Because the genetic line was so pure in the beginning, there was no problem with inbreeding. But as the population grew large enough, and as the risk of genetic problems increased due to sin’s curse, God outlawed marriage between immediate family members (see Lev. 18:6–18).

Genesis 4:17 And Cain knew his wife, and she conceived and bore Ēnoch. And he built a city, and called the name of the city after the name of his son—Ēnoch.

Practice before going “live.”

If you’re fearful about preaching open-air for the first time, practice at home before doing it “live.” Go over the gospel in your mind until it’s second nature—no, until it’s first nature. When you are alone, preach it. (In the shower is a great place to preach.) Go through a few anecdotes. Get used to the sound of your own voice. Pretend to engage a heckler. Invite some friends over to role-play with you—and practice what you preach.

If you are afraid of looking foolish if you mentally draw a blank while speaking, have a backup plan. Keep a New Testament with you and if you freeze up, say, “I would just like to read something to you.” Read John 3:16–18 and conclude with, “Thank you for listening.” Just knowing that you have that option will dissipate the fear.

Genesis 28:3“May God Almighty bless you, And make you fruitful and multiply you, That you may be an assembly of peoples;

Entirely safe.

“To be entirely safe from the devil’s snares the man of God must be completely obedient to the Word of the Lord. The driver on the highway is safe, not when he reads the signs but when he obeys them.” A. W. Tozer

Jeremiah 35:13“Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: ‘Go and tell the men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, “Will you not receive instruction to obey My words?” says the Lord.

Burning within.

Persecution almost persuaded Jeremiah not to speak in God’s name, but God’s Word burned so within Jeremiah that he could not keep it to himself (see Psa. 39:3). How much more should we be forthright in presenting the good news of eternal life through our Savior Jesus! (See John 17:14)

Jeremiah 20:9Then I said, “I will not make mention of Him, Nor speak anymore in His name.” But His word was in my heart like a burning fire Shut up in my bones; I was weary of holding it back, And I could not.
