Jeremiah 8:18–You who are my Comforter in sorrow, my heart is faint within me.


The Lord has been sharing the message of the destruction of Judah with Jeremiah. Jeremiah then takes a break in this verse and shares with the Lord his response to the message. He is sorrowful and is overcome with grief at what is coming. Yet, even in his grief, he turns to the Lord. He knows that only by coming to God will he be comforted and strengthened. When we go through a time of difficulty and sorrow, are we leaning on the One who gives true comfort? Only the Lord can sustain and carry us through.


Father, You are my strength and joy, even in times of weakness and sorrow. I will continually turn to You and seek Your help during all times. Father, You hear my cries and You are with me through all things.
