So King Zedekiah secretly promised him, “As surely as the LORD our Creator lives,
I will not kill you or hand you over to the men who want you dead.”
I’m sure you’re wondering why I want to write about this verse. The answer is because of Jeremiah 1:19, “They will fight you, but they will fail. For I am with you, and I will take care of you. I, the LORD, have spoken!” God told this to Jeremiah when He called Him to prophesy. Jeremiah was flogged, imprisoned by King Zedekiah, thrown in a cistern to die, etc. But I believe Jeremiah purposed in his heart what the Lord told him at the beginning of his ministry (Jeremiah 1:19). King Zedekiah promised him he wouldn’t kill or hand him over to those who wanted to.
I don’t know what you’re going through but know that the Lord is with you and will take care of you. (These are the words He has spoken). I challenge you today to look up how often the Lord says He is with you and will take care of you.
