Jeremiah 15:19-20 Therefore thus says the LORD: "If you return, I will restore you, and you shall stand before Me. If you utter what is precious, and not what is worthless, you shall be as My mouth. They shall turn to you, but you shall not turn to them. And I will make you to this people a fortified wall of bronze; they will fight against you, but they shall not prevail over you, for I am with you to save you and deliver you, declares the LORD.
Jeremiah has been praying about his situation and how he feels abandoned. This is the Lord's response. Have we deviated from following the Lord so that we have fallen away from His presence and protection? Are we in hot water because we haven't stayed as close to Him as we should? His promise is sure: return and I will make you a wall of bronze and they will not prevail. Own this one for today and press on!
