Verse 5 shows me that there are things in the land contending with us and trying to go ahead and weary us

Verse 6 compliments verse 5 but to me God was asking Jeremiah if you are struggling when things are at peace...how will you survive when things really get bad....

2 Timothy 1 7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love and self discipline.Despite the challenges I face everyday I am encouraged by this bible verse, knowing that my God is with me giving me the confidence to persevere and endure when the day is long and the load is heavy, I am assured that i will receive God 's peace.

It means we are made for greater challenges, we are made to subdued principalities & power's, so if you're been oppressed by witches & demons , you have fallen short of the glory of God. We are created in God's image. Heb 12:29 says our God is a consuming fire. & that's what we're. Blessed.

I think this is to encourage all Pilgrims not to give up in the face of small problems or what will we do when bigger problems show up in our journey...
