TEXT: Jeremiah 15:1-9
“And I will cause them to be removed into all kingdoms of the earth, because of Manasseh the son of Hezekiah king of Judah, for that which he did in Jerusalem.” – (Jeremiah 15:4)

King Hezekiah was righteous but fell into sickness that was to claim his life. He had no child to succeed him on the throne. He prayed to God to take notice of the life he had lived and how perfectly he had walked with Him. His prayer was heard. God healed him and added fifteen years to his lifespan (2 Kings 20:1-8). After Hezekiah died, his son became king.
It was strange that Manasseh turned to be the opposite of his father. He did many things that provoked God and became the most ungodly king to rule over Israel. Thus, He poured His wrath on His people and scattered them all over the earth. He appointed some to death, others to famine, sword and destruction. While Manasseh brought judgment on the land, Joseph was an instrument of deliverance for his people. In life, there are two sets of people: those for whose sake God will show mercy and others for whose sake there will be destruction.
When you look at events and developments around, you may find that there are things that you are responsible for. It can be very terrible to discover that you are the cause of a major disaster in your family or somewhere else. Are you like Manasseh or Joseph? Shall someone be grateful to God for your sake or curse the day of meeting you? How will you feel to know that because of you, God turned His face against your family, church or community? Check your life.
If your life has been more of a problem than a blessing, God is willing to transform you today for Christ’s sake. If you are out of relationship with Him, embrace Him and all will be well. “…I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live.
Are you a blessing or a curse to your generation?
1 Kings 11-12
