God Said Jeremiah

God said the words “Jeremiah” and I have found a little intro on the book of Jeremiah. Jeremiah was the prophet of Judgement and hope. Also called the weeping prophet. God touched his mouth to speak to many.
Then the LORD put forth his hand, and touched my mouth. And the LORD said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth.  Jeremiah 1:9
Jeremiah 29:13“And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.”
For mine eyes are upon all their ways: they are not hid from my face, neither is their iniquity hid from mine eyes. Jeremiah 16:17
Quotes below:
“The book of Jeremiah contains the prophecies, warnings, and teachings that were part of the prophet Jeremiah’s ministry to the Southern Kingdom of Judah. Because many of Jerusalem’s leaders and people rejected Jeremiah and other prophets and continued to sin, Jerusalem was destroyed and many Jews were taken captive to Babylon. This book illustrates that the covenant between God and Israel does not make God’s people invincible. If they do not fulfill their part of the covenant and heed the Lord’s word, they withdraw themselves from God’s care and protection.”
“One of the prophet’s famous sayings is the one in which he points out that wisdom, might, and riches, are nothing compared to the happiness that man achieves through real knowledge and understanding of the ways of God: “Thus saith the Lord: Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might; let not the rich man glory in his riches. But let him that glorieth, glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth Me, that I am the Lord Who exercises mercy, justice, and righteousness on the earth; for in these things I delight, saith the Lord.”
“Practical Application: The Prophet Jeremiah had a most difficult message to deliver. Jeremiah loved Judah, but he loved God much more. As painful as it was for Jeremiah to deliver a consistent message of judgment to his own people, Jeremiah was obedient to what God told him to do and say. Jeremiah hoped and prayed for mercy from God for Judah, but also trusted that God was good, just, and righteous. We too must obey God, even when it is difficult, recognize God’s will as more important than our own desires, and trust that God, in His infinite wisdom and perfect plan, will bring about the best for His children (Romans 8:28).”

God also said “passing patiently”- It’s amazing how I feel I am failing him sometimes and he puts positives in me still.
