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.

  • Elizabeth for verse 11
    The context of this verse indicates God said this to His people Israel regarding the coming 70 year exile from their homeland. Thus, the verse is not a promise of future prosperity for an individual. The good news is, however, that if God has a plan for His people -- those who have accepted salvation through Jesus Christ -- it follows that He has a plan for each believer 's future that is full of good, not evil. For that reason, each believer can face his or her future with hope.
