Jeremiah 28:1-4 How easily the people were taken in by the promises of this false prophet Hananaiah whose name means “Jehovah has favoured.” Lord. Train my ears to hear only the truth of Your Word and the sound of Your voice. May I be able to quickly discern what is true and what is false, and then may I tell others, not keeping such good news to myself.
Jeremiah 28:13-14 Lord, I thank You that Your yoke fits perfectly, and the burden You give me is light. (Matthew 11:30). Help me not to be yoked to any lie that will eventually take me into deeper bondage. I want to serve You with a willing heart.
Jeremiah 29:7 It was God’s will for the captives to become a part of the nation where they had to live, adding to the public welfare by praying and working for peace, for it was only by the nations peace that they could have peace. This is God’s will for any people. Christianity demands that every Christian add to the betterment of the society in which he or she lives, so as to make the world a better place. Pray to The Lord for peace in the place where you live.
Jeremiah 29:10 Lord, I thank You for Your ninefold restoration plan you had for Your people Israel.
1. I will visit you. 2. I will perform My good word to you. 3. I will cause you to return to your own land and place. 4. I have good thoughts toward you, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you an expected end.(v11) 5. You will call upon Me and will pray to Me, and I will hear you (v12) 6. You will seek Me, and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart (v13). 7. I will be found by you (v14). 8. I will turn away you captivity, and will gather you from the nations where I have driven you. 9. I will bring you back into the place where I caused you to be carried away.
Jeremiah 29:11 What a comfort this promise is to me, Lord. Thank You for Your plans for me, plans for good and not for disaster, plans that give me a future and a hope. I submit my life and my will to Your plans, Lord.
Jeremiah 29:13 “O God, You are my God; I earnestly search for You. My soul thirst for You” (Psalm 63:1). Show Yourself to me in new ways today.
Psalm 90:4 For You, Lord, a thousand years are as yesterday! They are like a few hours! Save me from a slavish, stress-filled devotion to my own timetables. Help me instead to see time eternity through Your eyes.
Psalm 90:16 God, please open my eyes so that I see Your miracles all around me. Help me as I teach my children also, so that they will grow up with an acute awareness of how gloriously You work in heir lives and in their world.
