Jeremiah 15:1-21

Jeremiah 15:1-21

👉 Because of the sinful ways of the people, the Lord promised four possible outcomes (v 2). Spoiler alert: none of them are pleasant.





👉 The Issue (v 6)

The issue with the people is the same that we have seen for 15 chapters now.

“You have rejected me.”

“You keep going backward.”

👉 The Result (v 6-9)

• the Lord stretched out his hand against them
• anguish and terror
• shame and disgrace

👉 Jeremiah’s faithfulness in proclaiming God’s Word brought him (v 10-18):

• persecution
• reproach
• isolation
• loneliness
• pain

👉 God’s promise to Jeremiah bc of his faithfulness (v 19-21):

• restoration
• His presence
• deliverance
• redemption

Just like every believer before and after him, Jeremiah had to know and believe the promises of God in order to face the persecution and pain of the world.

👉 Whatever you are enduring today – whatever pain you are facing – whatever trial you are dealing with – God’s promises are the same.


And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you. 1 Peter 5:10


“…And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:20


You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance. Psalm 32:7


In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace. Ephesians 1:7
