Wesley's Notes for Jeremiah 29:11


29:11 To give - This deliverance will not depend upon your merits, but upon my own mercy, and kind thoughts and purposes I have for the seed of Abraham my servant, and I am resolved in my own thoughts what to do, I intend not the blotting out of the name of Israel from the earth, but to give such an end to their trouble as themselves expect and desire.

    V. 7 - seek ye the peace ...........for in the peace, ye shall have peace. What a beautiful thing! It's the same as Matt. 5:9. Only 'the children of God' seek peace. Others say they do, but they haven't the strength of His spirit yo continually do so.
  • GLORIA MIREMBE
    indeed God is not a son of man to lie nor is his way like man's ways. when he promises he fulfills, he watches over his word till it is accomplished no matter how long he takes. lets keep our faith and hopes so high in God and we shall never be disappointed not forgetting to design our desires according to GOD'S WILL walking according to God's word in order to see gd days while still on earth

    All of God's promises are yes and amen. What a blessing and honor to seek the Lord God Almighty and be assured of finding Him while on the earth. How blessed we are to know and believe God.

    So true of the world today. We are lost and want the Lord to find yet we don't want to be found. We need to seek with sincere heart, for the Holy One we seek is always in our presence, calling us home
