It doesn’t get any easier for Jeremiah does it? The poor guy is so despised that they decide he must be killed to keep him for speaking his prophecies and lowering the moral of the people. They put him in the bottom of a well and leave him there to die. It’s not much hope when he is rescued just to go back into the prison he came from.
I find that many people try to shut out God’s voice in their life when they are living in a way they know displeases him. Instead of changing their life, they try to shut off their compass of right and wrong. It’s like the person who’s having and affair and goes to the doctor for depression. It’s not drugs you need…it’s fidelity!
