Jeremiah complained (Jeremiah 12:1-4).
When he faithfully shared God’s truth, he was persecuted and despised, even by family members.
Have you felt Jeremiah's pain?
People once tolerated immorality; now they applaud it (Romans 1:32). They once tolerated Christian values; now they mock them.
If you lovingly share the Bible’s teaching on homosexuality, fornication, or abortion, you’ll feel Jeremiah’s pain.
If you discuss Biblical accuracy or Christian responsibility with some in the family of God, you feel Jeremiah’s pain (12:6).
How did God answer Jeremiah’s complaints?
“If you have raced with men on foot and they have worn you out, how can you compete with horses?” (12:5)
God understood Jeremiah’s pain, but the race was getting faster and God wanted Jeremiah to pick up the pace and keep running.
Dear friends, this message applies to us as well.
The race is getting faster and harder, but God's Word will give us speed and endurance.
These 1-minute devotions will also inspire you to "run" faster and harder: Run, Faith is a Race, Athletic Gear
