Return Unto Me

Jeremiah 4:14
O Jerusalem, wash thine heart from wickedness, that thou mayest be saved. How long shall thy vain thoughts lodge within thee?
What can we do about misery? Why do we ever fear or cry? Why are we ever weary, sad, spoiled, desolate, or forsaken? How can we escape God's fierce anger and fury? How can you "break up your fallow ground?" Turn to the Lord. What does "Return Unto Me" mean? How can we put our abominations away out of His sight? He sees our hearts, and that's where the wickedness of our ways and doings has reached. We need to wash our hearts. Our understanding and knowledge needs to be to do good instead of evil. Forget about your vain and wicked thoughts and imaginations. In His presence is fullness of joy, and at His right hand there are pleasures for evermore. All things, which He has richly given to us to enjoy, are just a shadow of things to come. His full goodness hasn't entered into any of our hearts yet. Since the beginning of the world, men haven't heard, or seen with their eyes, or perceived with their ears, what Our Lord is preparing, and has in store for us who love Him and wait for Him.
