TOPIC: GOD’S COMFORTING WORDS

TEXT: Jeremiah 30:1-14

KEY VERSE:
“For, lo, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will bring again the captivity of my people Israel and Judah, saith the LORD: and I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it.” - (Jeremiah 30:3)

The grand plan of God for Israel as His people was to give them peace, rest and quietness throughout their habitations and at all times. But such plan was often truncated each time as the nation of Israel dabbled into sin and rebellion against Him. Divine reaction to such actions was to reject Israel and their ever-waiting enemies would attack and pummel them until they realised and repented of their sins.

Out text today captures one of such occasions wherein God through His prophet, Jeremiah, resolved to bring back again to Israel her captives and reestablish them a happy, healthy and progressive people.

The Lord instructed the prophet to write down in a book all the words He had commanded him concerning Israel (Jeremiah 30:2). This showed that nothing would ever change of all that He has promised and indeed resolved to do for His people. This fact is comforting. It assures all believers in Christ of God’s unchanging promises. Specifically, He assured Israel of return, rest and freedom from fear of their enemies and divine presence in the Promised Land (Jeremiah 30:10,11).

The salvation and deliverance the Israelites enjoyed in part are today available to us in full through the redemptive work of Christ. Therefore, faithful pilgrims should soar on like the eagles and savour life and peace in Christ Jesus who alone is the captain of our band.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
God alone gives us peace like a river.

THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Proverbs 27 - 29
