Today's Reading: Jeremiah 29

Please read Jeremiah 29 and listen to what the Lord Jesus Christ would like to tell you before reading my Spiritual Journal below. If you would like to learn a simple and good way of Daily Devotion method please read my “Count Down 5” from this blog. You may click this link directly for the method: Subject Shifting Devotion.pdf. (You may begin with a song to praise the Lord and complete you devotion by singing another praise song.)

Please click the links below to Jeremiah 29:

"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.12 Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you,” declares the Lord,“and will bring you back from captivity.[b] I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile.”
Jeremiah 29: 11-14

Bible Study

This chapter shows us a letter Jeremiah wrote to the Jewish exiles taken captive in 597 B.c.. He wrote this letter about one or two years after they arrived in Babylon. Those people lost all their hope living in darkness and oppression everyday. Jeremiah brought them with God's words giving them hope and instruction to live on:
1. They should live normal life as they had before and to pray for their alien city.
2. They must not listen to the false prophets any more.
3. Those who remained in Jerusalem would suffer greatly for their rebellion against God.
4. Two false prophets would be killed because they were living in adultery. and falsely delivering God's message.
5. At the end of 70 years of captivity God would give them restoration.

Hope is the key word for those people and hope is what God used Jeremiah to give to His people in a time that they thought God left them!

My Spiritual Journal

What I receive from Jesus is: God's plan is to give you hope!

Jesus leads me to think of the pain of God at that time when He had to pour down His wrath to punish the Jews. That is painful! Why God had to do that? Because we are all stubborn and unfaithful!

God will do the same to you and to those around you if you are still stubborn and unfaithful until you are being moved by His love and are willing to repent because of His punishment to be teachable and faithful!

Which way you are going to choose? Suit yourself!

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to be sure that you love us and your plan is to prosper us and not to harm us. His plan is to give us hope. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
