Jesus wants to protect us if we’ll come to Him. We reject His help because we don’t think He can help us. Jerusalem had become blind to God and insensitive to human need. We can all replace Jerusalem in this passage with our own name.
Our stubbornness in doing what we want overtakes us. Far too often we are hurting, but refuse to turn to Him. Jesus wants to protect us if we’ll come to Him.
Questions for further thought:
1. What hurt are you withholding from God?
2. How can you let God protect you?
Challenge: Pray that God will soften your heart and you will be able to trust Him.
