God, Remember Us

Read the Bible in a year by reading Jeremiah 15-17 today.
Jeremiah lived according to God’s righteousness and he preached what the Lord told him to say. Did that make him a friend of his brethren? No, they did not appreciate those things about Jeremiah, but fought against him. Therefore, here is what he prayed to the Lord,
O LORD, You know;
Remember me and visit me,
And take vengeance for me on my persecutors.
In Your enduring patience, do not take me away.
Know that for Your sake I have suffered rebuke.
(Jeremiah 15:15).
Of course, God remembers us as we do His will, but to keep from getting discouraged and giving up, we need to pray as this man of God did. We suffer for the Lord’s sake. Therefore, we want Him to remember us and to visit us, keeping us strong and not taking us away with the wicked. Rather we want Him to take vengeance on our persecutors, but only that they might see the error of their way and return to the Lord.
QUESTION from today?s reading assignment: In chapter 17, the Lord say blessed is the man who does what?
