If Footman Tire You, What Will Horses Do? by Miles Seaborn

IF FOOTMAN TIRE YOU, WHAT WILL HORSES DO?
Dr. Miles Seaborn
Jeremiah 12:1-13

INTRO. Background - chapter 11. Jeremiah turns in a
complaint to God. I have been believing the message
you told me to. But the people are out to kill me.
They don't want your word! God answers in verse 22,
"Behold I will punish them; the young men shall die by
the sword, their sons and their daughters shall die by
famine. God deals with His enemies in due time! But
Jeremiah goes on.

"Lord, I don't want to be a complainer, but there are
some things I don't understand." I know you are

V. 5 - 2. Jordan's floods - the river flooded
the thickets where the wild animals lived and
they devoured the people. If you can't serve me
in a land of peace, what will you do when the
land is in turmoil?

God is trying to speak to our nation, even as He spoke
in the time of Jeremiah. What God is saying is don't
faint - don't give up! Even when you feel alone,
don't stop serving God! Something worse is coming!
Consider the footmen who run against us today. We are
running a race with some strong footmen today. They
