Jeremiah 15:16 – Verse of the Day 3/1/13
“Your words were found, and I ate them, and your words became to me a joy and the delight of my heart, for I am called by your name, O Lord, God of hosts” (Jeremiah 15:16).
Jeremiah is often referred to as the “weeping prophet” for the way he cries out to God on the behalf of His people. One of the central themes of the book of Jeremiah is a call to reject illegitimate prophets who proclaim a false peace and security based on anything other than the true message of God. This verse lies in the middle of Jeremiah’s plea for God to hear him and respond to his mistreatment. God’s word is a sweet delight in the midst of difficult circumstances.
Think about where you go when you need comfort. What do you turn to? Jeremiah says to rely on God’s Word for encouragement. God is ever-present, and we can turn to Him for all things! Spend some time in prayer, praising God for the gift of His Word.
