Success in Steadfast Faithfulness

Students of the Scriptures refer to him as the Weeping Prophet. In the face of a naysaying headwind, Jeremiah stood faithful, preaching repentance and remaining steadfast. It was difficult, physically and spiritually. Not only did he suffer, he knew what was coming. He faced opposition, and God had told him it to expect it. “When you call, they will not answer you.” Imagine the challenge. You may feel like a failure. Stay the course. Your success will be measured by your faithfulness.

“This is what I commanded them: Listen to my voice; then I will be your God and you shall be my people. Walk exactly in the way I command you, so that you may prosper. But they did not listen to me, nor did they pay attention. They walked in the stubbornness of their evil hearts and turned their backs, not their faces, to me. From the day that your ancestors left the land of Egypt even to this day, I kept on sending all my servants the prophets to you. Yet they have not listened to me nor have they paid attention; they have stiffened their necks and done worse than their ancestors. When you speak all these words to them, they will not listen to you either. When you call to them, they will not answer you. Say to them: This is the nation which does not listen to the voice of the Lord, its God, or take correction. Faithfulness has disappeared; the word itself is banished from their speech.
