JEREMIAH 1:18-19

18. For I, behold, I have made you this day a fortified city, and an iron pillar, and brazen walls against the whole land: against the successive kings of Judah, against its princes, against its priests, and against the people of the land (giving you divine strength which no hostile power can overcome).

19. And they shall fight against you, but they shall not finally prevail against you, for I Am with you, says the Lord, to deliver you. Amp.


Fortify -d) to strengthen physically or structurally.

Jeremiah had a tough job. He had to go and tell the people of Israel basically that they were heading for disaster because of their sin and were about to be taken captive by an Idolatrous country while their beloved temple was being destroyed. A message truly no one wanted to hear.

He had plenty of opposition and was put in the stocks and humiliated by the king. He was tested as not many are. He had his times of weakness when he complained to God but came out of it with a fire in his bones knowing he could not keep the Words he was given inside.

But what a blessing he was given. The Lord gave him more strength than all of Israel. He made him strong as a fortified city against the whole land. He had nothing to fear. When the Lord sends you on a mission, He always give you more than enough for the task at hand.

PSALM 91:1

  1. He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty (Whose power no foe can withstand). Amp.

LUKE 12:48

48. …For everyone to whom much is given, of him shall much be required…

When the Lord gives, He expects us to not bury what He gives us but to use it for His glory. That usually comes with persecution and opposition. We must expect it but know that no foe can defeat us, that we have more power than our foe that is before us. That is more than enough.

  1. Great work and I think God has given me this grace becomes of my assignment.
    Thank you for reminding me of this.
    There are moments when we can carry sharp and painful messages and sometimes would want to sugarcoat so that we don’t experience the rejection that comes with strong warnings from the Lord.

  2. “JEREMIAH 1:18-19”. I had to memorize this one to continually instill courage when the Lord sent us out to redevelop a neighborhood that was dying. Many government officials wanted it dead, But God spoke ‘Life’ into our spirit…and so with this word hidden in our hearts, we pressed on💕

  3. “…No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD…”
    Isaiah 54:17
