Jeremiah – The Weeping Prophet

Jeremiah is known as the “weeping Prophet.” 

God consecrated Jeremiah (i.e., set him aside for a special, divine purpose) before he was born. God called him to be a prophet to the nations (Chapter 1:5).  At first, Jeremiah resisted because he was a youth.  He felt ill-equipped and feared failure.

12 Positive Statements – by J.S.
