Heal me, Lord, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise.
Jeremiah, who was a priest by birth and a prophet by calling, seems to have been torn by the message he had to deliver. Interceding for his people on the one hand, and on the other, standing as God’s messenger to warn them of His coming judgment.
The psychological and emotional pressures made his physical suffering at the hands of his own countrymen and family even harder to bear. But Jeremiah knew where to turn when his heart was overwhelmed.
Crying to the Lord for healing and salvation, he knew that he would be heard, and that the God who called him would sustain him until the end of his earthly trek.
Let us, like him, be uncompromising in our obedience, and firm in our reliance on the One who alone is our praise, the source of our strength, and the rock of our salvation.
Let us pray, “Save me from the corruptions of the times, from the designs of my enemies; preserve me to thy kingdom and glory”.
There are none saved but whom the Lord saves, and those that are saved by him are saved to a purpose; they can never perish:
May our Loving Father God heal and save Samoa as we continue to give him all the honor, glory and praise.
