Twisted – Part 2

Jeremiah 29:11 promised that the nation of Israel would be restored, but very few of the exiles lived to see the fulfillment of that prophecy. Most of them died without seeing the “future” that God had planned for them. A future that wasn’t fulfilled until 70 years later. Likewise, the future & hope we have in Christ are not a guarantee that things will go well in this life. For most believers throughout history and in the world today, the world is a cold and dangerous place. In fact, the promise outlined in Romans 8 is specifically that, even though believers will face all sorts of dangers and persecutions in this life, Jesus will never abandon us. May the words of Jeremiah 29:11 remind us that God is faithful and He will never abandon us.
