Jeremiah chapter 1…. Jeremiah is always known as the weeping prophet, but today I learnt that he is also known as the “persevering prophet”. Living in an extremely difficult time, he devoted his life to working for God. As faithful as he was, he apparently had only 2 converts Baruch his scribe, and ebedmelech, an ethiopian eunuch. The people he preached to would eventually repent, but he did not live to see it. Lord please grant me perseverance and strength and stamina in this christian journey, that is a prayer I have been saying today for myself, and anyone reading this.
Hillsong has this song, Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders, let me walk upon the waters wherever You would call me, Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander, and my faith will be made stronger in the presence of my Savior. (here’s the song with lyrics below).
I pray we may learn a thing or two from Jeremiah’s story so that our own story will bless others. Let’s continue to STAND OUT!
