God wants such a close relationship with us that He desires to hear our heart even when it expresses our concerns and even doubts. Jeremiah had been faithful to God but it came at a great cost. His family abandoned him. His friends scoffed at him and waited for him to make a mistake. The general public disliked him for his message.
Yet, Jeremiah was still required to keep moving forward. In a moment of candor with God, Jeremiah is able to share what was on his heart. None of this was new to God; but Jeremiah knew that God cared about him, so he poured out his heart.
Don’t ever be afraid to share your heart with God. He welcomes it because He knows that once you have cast your cares on Him, then you will be ready to go back into the battle and keep on fighting. This is what Jeremiah did and we need to do it too.
