Jeremiah 23-24 B

” ‘For the time is coming,‘ says the Lord, ‘when I will raise up a righteous descendant from King David’s line. He will be a King who rules with wisdom. He will do what is just and right throughout the land: And this will be his name: ‘The Lord Is Our Righteousness. In that day Judah will be saved, and Israel will live in safety.’ ” 23:5-6

I love glimpses of Jesus in the Old Testament. I needed this today! I needed to read that God had a plan for the exiles (24:6). I needed to remember that even when society and current leaders fail, it doesn’t derail God’s ultimate plan to redeem and reconcile all things back to him.

The exiles will be drawn back! A new King is coming! And the rotten fruit will be scattered and thrown out.

What promises did you read today?
