The Lord is with me as a mighty giant

Possibly Jeremiah 20 is one of the most read and known chapters in all the Scriptures. Another degree of possibility is that you have heard someone tell Jeremiah “the weeping prophet.” Particularly, the story of Jeremiah has influenced me since I was a teenager and we see how God calls this being a child to be a prophet for Israel, a people that increasingly forgot the precepts or laws of God.

In chapter 20 Jeremiah begins practically complaining about all the bitterness he was going through, imagine, he was speaking to a rebellious people, a king who did not want to hear the word of God and was leading the people more and more to decline both spiritual and political.

Despite Jeremiah saying in chapter 20 words like “I curse the day I was born” he also knew that God was with him as a mighty giant. You can judge the prophet by certain expressions, but we must understand that the man had suffered many difficulties to speak the words of God.

Jeremiah said:

11 But the Lord is with me as a mighty, awesome One.
Therefore my persecutors will stumble, and will not prevail.
They will be greatly ashamed, for they will not prosper.
Their everlasting confusion will never be forgotten.

12 But, O Lord of hosts,
You who test the righteous,
And see the mind and heart,
Let me see Your vengeance on them;
For I have pleaded my cause before You.

Jeremiah 20:11-12

Oh dear brothers, how pleasant it is when we entrust all our problems in the precious hands of the Lord, how precious and valuable it is when we expect God to fight for us and not take justice with our own hands.

Pray for God to allow us to have that assurance of trusting fully in Him.

    The Lord is with me as a mighty giant
    ======================
    In difficult days we may go through, in family problems, when our peace is attacked by disease or other situations that cause trouble for our souls we (that surely don’t have the spiritual level of Jeremiah), cannot experience that the Lord is with us as a mighty giant; but at least we expect that the Lord will help us and showmus his power, so that our problems are solved.

    Sometimes we find some professing believers that seem to never solve their problems, then we advise them to pray to the Lord, wait patiently on him, or change his moral behaviour. We may pray for them too… but, things remain without change.
    Jeremiah cries out:

    “But the Lord is with me as a mighty, awesome One.
    Therefore my persecutors will stumble, and will not prevail.
    They will be greatly ashamed, for they will not prosper.
    Their everlasting confusion will never be forgotten.”
    Jeremiah 20:17

    Jeremiah was listened by the Lord because he was a humble man, who humiliated himself before the Lord and cried out to him with tears and pain in his heart.

    I find that some people are proud and by their words seem to be people who lack meekness, which is a stumbling block to pleasing the Lord. So He forces them to lay aside their proud attitude before Him, so that the Lord may listen to his prayer. Meanwhile these proud people suffer by their stubbornness.

    May the Lord God be merciful with us and make us lay our proud heart aside, before we pray to Him, asking Him to help us in our needs.
