Discussion for Jeremiah 29

    In verses 12 and 13, even though the Israelites had repeatedly ignored Jehovah God and left him, He was willing to listen to them and he didn't retaliate by treating them he way they treated him.

    Jer. 29:10 - I've read this and the same message in other places, but what was literally thrown a 'light' on for me is the fact that God knew after 70 yrs. they would be ready to return to Him. He knew how long it would take even before He pronounced this judgment. He did this with me; after 34 yrs. of backsliding He KNEW I was ready to come back. I didn't; It was a surprise to me!!!

    God knows everything that we deal with daily. He knows all about about our daily trails and tribulations. This is not His desires for us. He wants us free of bondage. He wants us to have peaceful life. So he has prepared a place for us where no more trails and tribulations exist. In order to gain the thoughts he has for us, we must have faith in Him. He's our only way to a peaceful life.
