"Sometimes I tell myself not to think about you, Lord, or even mention your name. But your message burns in my heart and bones, and I cannot keep silent. I heard the crowds whisper, “Everyone is afraid. Now's our chance to accuse Jeremiah! [Adrianne/you]” All of my so-called friends are just waiting for me to make a mistake. They say, “Maybe Jeremiah [Adrianne/you] can be tricked. Then we can overpower him [her] and get even at last. ”But you, Lord, are a mighty soldier, standing at my side.Those troublemakers will fall down and fail—terribly embarrassed, forever ashamed. Lord All-Powerful, you test those who do right, and you know every heart and mind. I have told you my complaints, so let me watch you take revenge on my enemies. I sing praises to you, Lord. You rescue the oppressed from the wicked (Jeremiah 20:9-13).
Its Okay To Cry
Its okay to cry. Jeremiah cried. Just like Jeremiah, you can mix your tears with praise. Everybody is not going to like what you have to say about God's Word pertaining to their lives. There will be opposition, slanders about you, even traps set for your demise. Praise God and keep spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Oh yes you will be persecuted, but faithfully proclaim God's Word. "If the people of this world hate you, just remember that they hated me [Jesus] first (John 15:18). Don't try and hold back on speaking God's Word. Jeremiah tried to hold back but couldn't, because God's Word was like fire shut up in his bones (Jeremiah 20:9). Regardless of the results, you cannot stop the fire if you tried.
No One Can Stop The Fire, Not Even The Enemy
"Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage--with great patience and careful instruction (2 Timothy 4:2).
