Many Bible greats drew closer to the Lord while in prison. Joseph was able to interpret dreams while in prison and those interpretations led to him getting out and being made second in command over Egypt. Paul wrote many of his epistles while in shackles in Rome.
Jeremiah received the above verse from the Lord while in prison. It was a reassurance to the prophet that God had not forsaken him. Even though Jeremiah might feel alone and defeated, the Lord reminds him He’s still there and He wants to hear his prayers.
If you’re going through difficult times, remember this promise to the Weeping Prophet. When we call to God, He will answer us and show us things that will blow our minds!
Trusting in God and His promises,
Pastor Ron Kitchell
