Have you ever wept at the hardness of men’s hearts? Men who reject the Love of God? There was a man who wept, he said: Oh, that my head were waters, And my eyes a fountain of tears, That I might weep day and night For the slain of the daughter of my people! (Jeremiah 9:1 NKJV) Jeremiah the Prophet cried out with the pain he bore; mans hardened hearts to the call of God. He wept so much that we remember Jeremiah as the weeping prophet.
Some of the prophets saw the judgment of God as good enough for them; they deserved what they were getting, but not Jeremiah. His heart ached with the pain and the burden of the rejection of God's warning and the terrible consequences soon to befall his people. In the midst of this Jeremiah cries out: Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; Save me, and I shall be saved, For You are my praise. (Jeremiah 17:14 NKJV)
Healing and salvation only come from The Lord. Jeremiah turned to the source of healing and the source of salvation and cried out; "Oh Lord Heal me and save me." Do we weep at the hardness of men's hearts? Do we cry out for salvation? Oh Lord give us a harvest of souls in this generation.
Those who plant in tears will harvest with shouts of joy. (Psalm 126:5 NKJV)
