Jeremiah 9:1 ” Oh, that my head were a spring of water and my eyes a fountain of tears! I would weep day and night for the slain of my people.”

The prophet Jeremiah was the Lord’s spokesman during the heartbreaking final days of his beloved nation, Judah. His deeply emotional writings gave him the title of “The Weeping Prophet”…a misunderstood, lonely, and very sensitive man persecuted by his own people who would simply not believe his warnings of the coming destruction if they didn’t repent. “Streams of tears flow from my eyes for Your Law is not obeyed.” But even though Jeremiah suffered by the hands of his countrymen, he continued to warn them…begging them to relent and turn back to God. And the times he tried to stay silent he said God’s Word was “in his heart like a fire, a fire shut up in my bones. I am weary of holding it in; indeed, I cannot.” (Jeremiah 20:9) But have we gotten to that point yet? Is our heart breaking for what breaks God’s in our Nation or are we just turning a blind eye? Is God’s Word so burning inside of us that we cannot hold it in any longer and must speak? And like Jeremiah, are we willing to battle for our Nation no matter what?
