Jeremiah was called the weeping prophet because of his deep mourning over the destruction of Israel at the hands of the Babylonians. Yet though his heart was broken, never did he worry whether God was there in his time of need. And we never need fear God won’t be with us in ours as well. During times of suffering it can feel as if God has turned a deaf ear and blind eye to our misery. But the truth is when we’re hurting and afraid, the Lord is there. Lovingly He’s whispering the same words to us as He did to Jeremiah. “Do not fear!” When His children cry out to Him for help, never will God let those pleas go unanswered. We just need to trust completely in the Lord. Trusting His perfect response, in His perfect timing. For when we call out to our Heavenly Father, He will always draw near to us, His beloveds.
