The Tears of Jeremiah

It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. (Lamentations 3:22-23 KJV)

Do you ever feel that your work for God is unfruitful and not accomplishing much? Jeremiah, the prophet, felt discouraged and wondered if his efforts were futile.

Jeremiah was Godís spokesman who delivered messages of gloom that the people of Judah didnít want to hear. He warned of Godís judgment and urged the people to repent, but they refused to listen. Jeremiah became a laughingstock and a target of mockery.

Throughout his ministry, Jeremiah suffered persecution and was threatened, imprisoned, beaten, falsely accused, and rejected by his family. At times, he felt God had forsaken him, and he cursed the day he was born. Known as the ďweeping prophet,Ē Jeremiah shed many tears for the people, but he never quit.

In 586 B.C, Jerusalem fell to the Babylonians, the Temple was destroyed, and the people were taken into exile. Tormented by grief, Jeremiah wept for Jerusalem. But, in the midst of his sorrow came the realization of Godís faithfulness and unfailing love for the people, and how they would not be cast off forever. (Lamentations 3:31-32). Jeremiah felt assured that God would bring His people back unto Himself and give them a future.

God called Jeremiah to a difficult ministry, but He helped him and equipped him for the task. Despite persecution, Jeremiah endured, proving to be one of Godís most faithful servants.

Father, thank you for encouraging us during times of sorrow and discouragement. Thank you for your faithfulness that continues throughout our lives. In Jesusí name. Amen.
