What do you see?

Jeremiah 1:4-10 NLT
[4] The LORD gave me this message: [5] "I knew you before I formed you in your mother's womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations." [6] "O Sovereign LORD," I said, "I can't speak for you! I'm too young!" [7] The LORD replied, "Don't say, 'I'm too young,' for you must go wherever I send you and say whatever I tell you. [8] And don't be afraid of the people, for I will be with you and will protect you. I, the LORD, have spoken!" [9] Then the LORD reached out and touched my mouth and said, "Look, I have put my words in your mouth! [10] Today I appoint you to stand up against nations and kingdoms. Some you must uproot and tear down, destroy and overthrow. Others you must build up and plant."

耶利米書‬ ‭1:4-10‬ ‭CNV‬‬
[4] 耶和華的話臨到我,說:[5] 「我使你在母腹中成形以先,就認識你; 你還未出母胎,我已把你分別為聖, 立你作列國的先知。」[6] 我就說:「主耶和華啊! 我不曉得說話, 因為我年輕。」[7] 耶和華對我說: 「你不要說:‘我年輕’, 因為無論我差你到誰那裡,你都要去; 無論我吩咐你說甚麼,你都要說。[8] 你不要怕他們, 因為我與你同在,要拯救你。」這是耶和華的宣告。 [9] 於是耶和華伸手按著我的口,對我說: 「看哪!我把我的話放在你口中。 [10] 今日我立你在列邦列國之上, 為要拔出、拆毀、 毀滅、傾覆, 又要建立和栽植。」

Jeremiah 1:11-12 NLT
[11] Then the LORD said to me, "Look, Jeremiah! What do you see?" And I replied, "I see a branch from an almond tree." [12] And the LORD said, "That's right, and it means that I am watching, and I will certainly carry out all my plans."

耶利米書‬ ‭1:11-12‬ ‭CNV‬‬
[11] 耶和華的話又臨到我,說:「耶利米,你看見甚麼?」我說:「我看見一根杏樹枝子。」[12] 耶和華對我說:「你看得不錯,因為我要留意使我的話成就。」

New heart, new desires

Ezekiel 36:26 NLT
[26] And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart.

‭‭以西結書‬ ‭36:26‬ ‭CNV‬‬
[26] 我必把新心賜給你們,把新靈放在你們裡面;我必從你們的肉體中除去石心,把肉心賜給你們。

Psalm 37:4 NLT
[4] Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you your heart's desires.

詩篇‬ ‭37:4‬ ‭CNV‬‬
[4] 你要以耶和華為樂, 他就把你心裡所求的賜給你。

Align your heart

Jeremiah 32:40 NLT
[40] And I will make an everlasting covenant with them: I will never stop doing good for them. I will put a desire in their hearts to worship me, and they will never leave me.

耶利米書‬ ‭32:40‬ ‭CNV‬‬
[40] 我要和他們立永遠的約,我必不離開他們,必使他們得到福樂;我也必把敬畏我的心賜給他們,使他們不會離開我。
