Message of the Day: Discipline Prepares People for A Better Future!
“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.” (Jeremiah 29:11,NKJV)
Jeremiah chapter 29 was written after Jehoiachin and the people of Israel had been taken to Babylonia. Jeremiah advises them to be peaceful and obedient captives, and promises that they will return to their homeland after 70 years (v. 10). But even in Babylonia the false prophets kept up their fight against Jeremiah (v.v. 21-32).
Israel will be in captivity for seventy years, but these will be years of discipline, during which God will prepare them for a better future (Jeremiah 29:10-11).
