Jeremiah 6:16

Thus says the Lord: Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths where the good way is, and walk in it; Then you shall find rest for your souls.

Jeremiah 29:11

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.
— Jeremiah 29:11

Thoughts on today’s verse

When Israel lay devastated in the face of a ruthless enemy that would rob all glory and strip bare the very soul of God’s people, God issued his promise. While the destruction visited upon them was in response to their rebellion and sin, God’s punishment wasn’t punitive alone, but redemptive. In their destruction, God promised prosperity, hope, and a future. Just as a doctor must cause pain when he sets a broken bone so it may heal, God’s discipline is not capricious but curative and ultimately life-giving.

Prayer:
In my struggles, O Lord, help me find your grace — not in the relief of struggle and pain, but in redemption and change to your glory. By your grace and through my Savior I say it. Amen.
