Jeremiah chapter 45: Even great servants of God can get distressed but God restores those who wait on Him. “Come with your burdens and I will release you”
Who was Baruch? Baruch was a son of Neriah and his brother (Seraiah) served in the kingship of Zedekiah (Jeremiah 51:59). I am not sure if his brother was already a great person in the times of King Jehoiakim, but the writers of Wiersbe Bible commentary stress that he chose to be humble and serve the Lord though his brother would have secured him a nice job or office in the government. However, most writers agree that Baruch expected to be promoted after reading the great prophecy to the people but his expectations were thwarted and turned around when the king ordered apprehension of him and the prophet as we observed in chapter 36.
