It just reminds us that when it becomes too much about business and very little about God, the Devil will arrive for the fight!

I Pray for all of God's people! But a Man stealing on a woman is not allowable! Not even for Preachers! I have considered my ways and that's why I never do it.

Shalom!
Haggai 1:5
5 Now therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways. Lamentations 3:40-42

40 Let us search and try our ways, and turn again to the LORD.
41 Let us lift up our heart with our hands unto God in the heavens.
42 We have transgressed and have rebelled: thou hast not pardoned.

Jeremiah called upon people to repent of their sins (40-42). People need to examine their lives and turn back to God, lifting up their hands and hearts to Him in prayer. People who have rebelled against God need to make a true confession of their sins, for rebellion and sin cause God's hand of judgment to fall. People's only hope of salvation is to call upon the Lord in repentance.

Jeremiah 2.
We overcome painful afflictions by turning to the Lord and seeking His salvation and power to deliver. Jeremiah showed the people six ways to respond to the painful afflictions of life:
1. In the face of affliction, Jeremiah pointed the people to the source of salvation. God is the Savior, the rescuer, the deliverer of all who are suffering painful afflictions (21-24). Three facts about the Lord should encourage all the afflicted to turn to Him for salvation and deliverance. Lets look at one.
First, God is love and full of compassion. In fact, it is because of the Lord's great love that the human race is not consumed and wiped off the face of the earth. People have become so wicked and have filled the earth with so much immorality, lawlessness, and violence that they deserve judgment and condemnation. But God loves the world. That is why He kept His promise to send the Savior into the world to provide salvation for people. God's great mercy or love (hesed) is a never-failing love that remains loyal and constant. The Lord's compassions never fail; therefore, He cannot totally forsake mankind. His heart is always filled with compassion for the human race, and He offers everyone who truly follows Him a fresh supply every day.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).
“Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need” (Heb. 4:14-16).
“But he, being full of compassion, forgave their iniquity, and destroyed them not: yea, many a time turned he his anger away, and did not stir up all his wrath” (Ps. 78:38).
“But thou, O Lord, art a God full of compassion, and gracious, longsuffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth” (Ps. 86:15).
“Like as a father pitieth his children, so the Lord pitieth them that fear him” (Ps. 103:13).
“In all their affliction he was afflicted, and the angel of his presence saved them: in his love and in his pity he redeemed them; and he bare them, and carried them all the days of old” (Isa. 63:9).
“He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea” (Mic. 7:19).
Jeremiah 2
Let us search and try our ways, and turn again to the LORD.

Haggai 1:5 Now therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways.

Matthew 7:3-4 (KJV)
3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith. Prove
your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how
that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?
(II Cor. 13:5)
If you are a born again brother, We must pray for our brother and siste
