Father, every word You speak to me gives me life and hope but, by the words spoken to me by my child, those same words make no impact on her or her siblings whatsoever! On the contrary, I only cause them pain and hurt when I herald those words to them. How can that be my Father?
As You answered Jeremiah You are answering me,
Truly your release, affliction, and strengthening will be for good purposes; surely Jeremiah, I will intercede for you with the enemy and I will cause the enemy to ask for your aid in the time of evil and in the time of affliction. [Jer. 21:1, 2; 37:3; 42:2; Rom. 8:28.]
