Jeremiah 32:1-44

Jeremiah 32:1-44

👉 Jeremiah is in prison and the people are headed into exile.

Things look bad. Dark. Grim. Dare I say – hopeless.

But listen to the promise of the Lord…

“Houses and fields and vineyards shall again be bought in this land.”

It doesn’t look that way now. And – even ten chapters from now – it won’t look that way.

The Lord promises an end to the exile. And there will be life and growth and fruitfulness – not in a new land – but in “this land.” The land that belonged to them. The land that they loved. Their land.

👉 And from a prison cell, Jeremiah prayed, “Ah, Lord God…”

  • you are creator
  • nothing is too hard for you
  • you are great and mighty
  • you are great in counsel
  • your eyes are open

👉 And God promised, “I will…”

  • gather them
  • bring them back
  • make them dwell in safety
  • give them one heart
  • make a covenant with them
  • not turn away
  • rejoice in doing them good
  • plant them in faithfulness
  • restore

I don’t know what your exile looks like. What dark place you find yourself. But – don’t forget what your God has said…

“I am the Lord, the God of all flesh. Is anything too hard for me?”

You are loved.
