Clifford Williams was sentenced to die for a murder he didn’t commit. From death row he vainly filed motions to reconsider the evidence against him. Each petition was denied—for forty-two years. Then attorney Shelley Thibodeau learned of his case. She found that not only was there no evidence to convict Williams, but that another man had confessed to the crime. At the age of seventy-six, Williams was finally exonerated and released.

 The prophets Jeremiah and Uriah were also in deep trouble. They had told Judah that God promised to judge His people if they didn’t repent (Jeremiah 26:12–13, 20). This message angered the people and officials of Judah, who sought to kill both prophets. They succeeded with Uriah. He fled to Egypt, but was brought back to face the king, who “had him struck down with a sword” (v. 23). Why didn’t they kill Jeremiah? In part because Ahikam “stood up for Jeremiah” (nlt), “and so he was not handed over to the people to be put to death” (v. 24 niv).

We may not know anyone facing death, but we probably know someone who could use our support. Whose rights are trampled? Whose talents are dismissed? Whose voice isn’t heard? It may be risky to step out like Thibodeau or Ahikam, but it’s so right. Who needs us to stand up for them as God guides us?

Welcome to today's encouragement from Our Daily Bread. I am my quiver and I entitled today's reading.

Who needs your support.

Clifford Williams was sentenced to die for murder he didn't commit from death row, he vainly filed motions to reconsider the evidence against him.

Each petition was denied for 42 years, then attorney Shelley Thibodeau learned of this case. She found that not only was there no evidence to convict Williams, but that another man had confessed to the crime at the age of 76. Williams was finally exonerated and released the prophets, Jeremiah and Uriah were also in deep trouble.

They had told Judah that God promised to judge his people. If they didn't repent. This message angered the people and officials of Judah who sought to kill both prophets. They succeeded with Uriah, he fled to Egypt but was brought back to face the king who had him struck down with the sword. Why didn't they kill Jeremiah in part because he come stood up for Jeremiah and so he was not handed over to the people to be put to death. We may not know anyone facing death, but we probably know someone who could use our support whose rights are trampled whose talents are dismissed, whose voice isn't heard it may be risky to step out like Thibodeau or he can, but it's so right. Who needs us to stand up for them as God guides us today's Our Daily Bread devotional Scripture reading is from Jeremiah chapter 26 verses 12 through 15 and 20 through 24 then Jeremiah said to all the officials and all the people. The Lord sent me to prophesy against this house in this city. All the things you have heard, not reform your ways and your actions and obey the Lord your God, then the Lord will relent and not bring the disaster he is pronounced against you. As for me I am in your hands do with me whatever you think is good and right. Be assured, however, that if you put me to death. You will bring the guilt of innocent blood on yourselves and on this city and on those who live in it for in truth, the Lord has sent me to you to speak all these words in your hearing now picking up at verse 29 Uriah some extra mile from curious germ was another man who prophesied in the name of the Lord. He prophesied the same things against the city in this land as Jeremiah did when King Joya Kim and all his officers and officials heard his words.

The king was determined to put into death. Uriah heard of it and fled in fear to Egypt, King Joya Kim however sent L Nathan Act IV to Egypt along with some other men. They brought Uriah out of Egypt and took him to King Joya Kim, who had him struck down with the sword, and his body thrown into the burial place of the common people. Furthermore he come some of Shaw fun supported Jeremiah so he was not handed over to the people to be put to death (loving God, help us to love others as you've loved us in Jesus name we pray. Amen.
