|Heal me, O LORD, and I will be healed;|
save me and I will be saved,
for you are the one I praise.
|Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved: for thou art my praise.|
The Prophet Jeremiah had a difficult message of judgment to deliver to the people of Judah. Jeremiah loved Judah, but he loved God much more.
Although Jeremiah struggled with oppression and loneliness, he continually looked to the Lord, praising Him and asking Him for deliverance. Jeremiah's example to us is to look to God for healing even when it may be difficult to recognize God's will in our lives.
