Today let’s read Jeremiah 49:1-33, 2 Kings 24:5-7, 2 Chronicles 36:6-8, 2 Kings 24:8-9, 2 Chronicles 36:9, Jeremiah 22:24-30, and Jeremiah 23:1-32. What’s your highlight today?
After all the judgement and warnings, God gives hope and promises restoration in chapter 23:
“All God’s sheep rounded up!” (Jeremiah 23:4 MSG)
All. I love that – all of His sheep. Let’s go ahead with the next verses too:
“Time’s coming”—God’s Decree—
“when I’ll establish a truly righteous David-Branch,
A ruler who knows how to rule justly.
He’ll make sure of justice and keep people united.
In His time Judah will be secure again
and Israel will live in safety.
This is the name they’ll give Him:
‘God-Who-Puts-Everything-Right.’ ” (Jeremiah 23:5-6 MSG)
A little hint of the future – and for me, it’s timely: is anyone else anxious to get to the New Testament and the Jesus part of this history? Hang in there – we’re going to make it! In the meantime, remember this: God is always kind!
