Jeremiah was a humble prophet of God who was used mightily by God in his time. He frequently felt the sting of ridicule and rejection for proclaiming God’s word to a rebellious people. He was on fire for God’s purpose in his life and was not about to be silenced.
There was good reason for his devotion to the living God, for he testifies in Jeremiah 15:16 saying, “Your words were found and I ate them, and Your words became for me a joy and the delight of my heart; for I have been called by Your name, O Lord God of hosts.” He consumed the words of God and he spoke the messages he had received. Jesus said that a man’s mouth speaks from that which fills his heart. (See Luke 6:45.)
Paul also confessed with an unwavering conviction that, “I did not shrink from declaring to you the whole purpose (or counsel) of God.” (Acts 20:27) Let us be encouraged to seek and discover GOD’S WORD for ourselves. Let us eat the heavenly manna (Jesus) and proclaim the mighty gospel of grace in our generation – and witness a bountiful harvest of souls for the kingdom of God.
