A Hard Word


When there is
a hard word

that I bring
to you

and receive it

do what you
must do.

You establish my ability to hear a hard word.

“Behold, I set before you the way of life and the way of death. He who remains in this city shall die by the sword, by famine, and by pestilence; but he who goes out and defects to the Chaldeans who besiege you, he shall live, and his life shall be as a prize to him.” Jeremiah 21:8,9 NKJV


The Lord IS With Me


Though it may seem
too hard to do

what I ask
you to

My love and presence
will overshadow

the difficulty
for you .

You establish me with Your presence.

“I am in derision daily; everyone mocks me. But the LORD is with me as a mighty, awesome one.” Jeremiah 20:7,11 NKJV



Even if I
must break you

in order for you
to see

I will do
whatever it takes

for you to return
to Me.

You establish my need of You.

“Then you will break the flask in the sight of the men who go with you, and say to them, ‘Thus says the LORD of hosts: “Even so I will break this people and this city, as one breaks a potter’s vessel . . .” ‘ “. Jeremiah 19:10,11 NKJV

A Vessel


As the clay is in
the potter’s hand

so are you
in Mine

as I
continuously shape you

into a vessel of My

You establish my design.

“Then I went down to the potter’s house, and there he was making something at the wheel. And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter; so he made it again into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to make. ‘O house of Israel, can I not do with you as this potter?’ says the LORD. ‘Look, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are you in My hand, O house of Israel!’ ” Jeremiah 18:3,4,6 NKJV

Blessed To Trust



You can
in Me

for I am

You establish my ability to trust You.

“Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, and whose hope is the LORD. For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, which spreads out its roots by the river, and will not fear when heat comes; but her leaf will be green, and will not be anxious in the year of drought, nor will cease from yielding fruit.” Jeremiah 17:7,8

Calling Me Back


I’ll keep calling you back
into the place
that I’ve designed
for you

for though I know
all you’ve done
I also see all
you’ll do.

You establish a place for me.

” ‘For I will bring them back into their land which I gave to their fathers. Behold, I will send for fishermen’, says the LORD, ‘and they shall fish for them; and afterward I will send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain and every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks. For My eyes are on all their ways; they are not hidden from My face, nor is their iniquity hidden from My eyes.’ ” Jeremiah 16:15,16 NKJV.

With You To Save You


I will deliver you
and save you

the enemy
will not prevail

for I am with you
to redeem you

so evil’s grip
shall fail.

You establish my reassurance.

” ‘And I will make you to this people a fortified bronze wall; and they will fight against you, but they shall not prevail against you,’ says the LORD. I will deliver you from the hand of the wicked, and I will redeem you from the grip of the terrible.” Jeremiah 15:20,21 NKJV

Rain Maker


You are the only One
with the power

to make it rain
to make it shower

You are He
the Lord our God

on whom we wait
hour by hour.

You establish Your importance in my life.

Cling to Me
like a sash

around My waist

and you
will be known

for My glory
and My praise.

You establish what I’m known for.

” ‘For as the sash clings to the waist of a man, so I have caused the whole house of Israel and the whole house of Judah to cling to Me,’ says the LORD, ‘that they may become My people, for renown, for praise, and for glory; but they would not hear.’ ” Jeremiah 13:11 NKJV

I will help you
to not grow weary

as indeed
you will run

with the footmen
and the horses

yet still

You establish my endurance.

Jeremiah’s Question
“Why does the way of the wicked prosper? Why are those happy who deal so treacherously?” Jeremiah 12:1 NKJV

The LORD Answers Jeremiah
“If you run with the footmen and they have wearied you, then how can you contend with horses? And if in the land of peace, in which you trusted, they wearied you,  then how will you do in the flooding of the Jordan?” Jeremiah 12:5 NKJV

“And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” Galatians 6:9
