Jeremiah 29-31

Scripture

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.  Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.  And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.”  Jeremiah 29:11-13 NKJV

 Observation

  • God’s thoughts toward us are peaceful and wants to give us hope.
  • When we call on God He listens to us.
  • If we seek God with all our heart we will find Him.
  • God is accessible to anyone who seeks him

 Application

These are incredible verses; God is so clear about His thoughts toward His people.  It is so reassuring to know that the God of the universe is personally concerned and cares about each of us.  He wants the best for us and we can be our best by depending on Him.  I’m humbled by the love from God in this passage.  We serve a passionate and dependable God. 

Prayer

Lord God I’m so grateful and honored to be your son.  Help me to live in the reality of these verses and remember daily that you want the best for my life.  Thank you for loving me and all your children with incredible passion. Amen.

 Jon
