The LORD Your God

I was reading Jeremiah 42.  The Israelites come to Jeremiah and ask him to pray to “the LORD your God” in verse 2 and 3.

Jeremiah replies in verse 4.

The prophet Jeremiah answered them, “Agreed! I will indeed pray to the LORD your God as you have asked. I will tell you everything the LORD replies in response to you. I will not keep anything back from you.”

Then in verse 6 they say “the LORD our God”.

It seems they were not sure if God was still their God but they knew He was Jeremiah’s God.  How often do we feel the same way?
