Josh shares from Jeremiah 28 about competing words from the Lord declared by the prophets Hananiah and Jeremiah. Hananiah is declaring what the people want to hear. Jeremiah is declaring a word from the Lord that is difficult to hear, but he is the picture of ongoing rootedness with God. The people are left with a question that we still must face today: "How do we discern Yahweh's voice?" Matthew 18:20; 1 Peter 2:9; Hebrews 10:24-25; Proverbs 16:9; Jeremiah 28.
