Discussion for Jeremiah 29

  • A disciple
    "And seek the peace of the city whither I have caused you to be carried away captives, and pray unto the LORD for it: for in the peace thereof shall ye have peace." What makes people think that all is simply wiped away as if it had never happened when they get saved? We are thankful that God lets us live, and accept where He has us; but we must face the facts of our circumstances as from God also.

    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!!!
