Please begin by reading Jeremiah 33:6-9
The city of Jerusalem and the King of Judah were failing against the invaders. God graciously gave to Jeremiah a greater understanding of His long range plan. God’s promises could only be fulfilled following the destruction. The hope of the nation of Israel was not found in escaping the coming destruction; rather, in the purification that would take place through the destruction.
God promised to cleanse and forgive all of people’s sins of rebellion; this would become the foundation that the new and everlasting covenant would be established. Once this new covenant became established, all of the nations on earth would see God’s hand of blessing on the people of Israel.
1. In spite of Israel’s many failures as a nation in following God’s commands, God still says He will restore their nation. God says He will….. Heal their wounds, give prosperity, give true peace, restore their fortunes, rebuild their towns, cleanse their sins, and forgive their rebellion.
2. After God completes this healing of them as individuals and as a nation He makes three great promises. First, the city of Jerusalem will bring God joy, glory, and honor before all peoples. Second, the world will see God’s Grace and Goodness to His people. Finally, the world will tremble with awe at the peace and prosperity that God provides to His people.
Just like God gave undeserved favor to the nation of Israel, God gives us that same undeserved favor on a daily basis. No matter how many times we fail God, He still desires to use us for His purposes and to give us the very best life He has to offer. No matter where you are today, no matter how many times you have failed God, no matter what circumstances you may be dealing with today remember God has graciously chosen us to be His hands and feet in the workplace. God has given us all His undeserved favor and desires to use you today to be His mouthpiece!
In conclusion, God’s grace is deeper, wider, longer, higher, and stronger than anything we could even fathom; therefore, we can have whatever we need this day in order to accomplish the God-size task we have been given. Thank you God for the grace you freely give to us. I am humbled by your love and provision. God would you help me daily to live in light of the undeserved favor you have granted me and mold me to be more like you in every area of my life. It’s in the name of Jesus I pray, Amen.
