In Chapters 3-4 Jeremiah wanted a spiritual turnaround for sinful, wasteful lives. He pictured this as a plowing of ground, formerly hard and unproductive because of weeds, in order to make it useful for sowing.
Chapters 3-4 are a description of God sending enemies to break up and punish the sinful people who are not seeing their sin.
God sent armies that were powerful like lions and took away blessings that they no longer recognized from God.
This is actually mercy from God so that these people will not die in their sin but recognize how far they have turned from God.
Do you recognize when God is trying to bring you back?
Are their things that you see as hardships that maybe can be useful to your spiritual life?
