Jeremiah 29:11 God's real plan


Church Family,

We love Jeremiah 29:11, but we often forget the context of it. By the way, you need to read the entire chapter, it is awesome.

In Jeremiah 29:23 because they have done an outrageous thing in Israel, they have committed adultery with their neighbors’ wives, and they have spoken in my name lying words that I did not command them. I am the one who knows, and I am witness, declares the LORD.’”

Yes, God has a plan, but it is to change the adulterous and lying people of God. How often do people lie about what God said or didn’t say? Did you know the divorce rate in the church is the same as the world’s? What a shame.

We love Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

The idea that God has a plan for us, gives us comfort, strength, and encouragement, but Why did God say this? The answer is found in verses 12-14 Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. 13You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. 14I will be found by you, declares the LORD, and I will restore your fortunes and gather you from all the nations and all the places where I have driven you, declares the LORD, and I will bring you back to the place from which I sent you into exile.

God’s plan was a 70 year plan to make His people more like Him and abandon the lies, cheating, and idolatrous living they were currently doing. God’s plan for your life is the same. It is to call you to turn from your sin and turn to Jesus for forgiveness and salvation. This is called repentance.

Can I lovingly ask you today to see God’s plan for your life as not being about making the best you, but to reveal the best of Him to the world through you.

Reminders:

Love, Serve, Go
