Jeremiah 24

Verse of the Day: V6 “For I will set mine eyes upon them for good, and I will bring them again to this land: and I will build them, and not pull them down; and I will plant them, and not pluck them up.”

1.  God will set His eyes on those who suffer.

V6 “For I will set mine eyes upon them for good ...”

Nobody likes to suffer in poverty, hardship or captivity, yet God comforted His people, the nation of Israel, and assured them that suffering was good for them. The loving God set His eyes upon His children even when they were disobedient to Him because He truly loved them. God allowed their enemies to defeat them and forced them as captives in a foreign land so that His people would turn to Him in repentance through their suffering.

Hebrews 12:6 “For whom the Lord loveth He chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom He receiveth.”

2.  God will build the lives of those who suffer.

V6 “For I will set mine eyes upon them for good, and I will bring them again to this land: and I will build them, and not pull them down; ..."

It is difficult to understand when we are in great suffering. However, after we have experienced suffering, we realized that we learn much more from suffering than from an easy life, and that God has actually built our lives through suffering for our own good.

Hebrews 12:11 “Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.”

3.  God will plant the lives of those who suffer.

V6 “For I will set mine eyes upon them for good, and I will bring them again to this land: and I will build them, and not pull them down; and I will plant them, and not pluck them up.”

God desires to plant our lives in the rivers of waters, the Word of God, so that during storms or suffering, we shall not be plucked out as we are deeply planted in the rivers of waters and eventually we shall prosper in God’s spiritual blessings for our own good.

Psalms 1:3 “And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.”

Prayer of the Week

Dearest God, please help me to know that suffering is good for me though it is tough and painful.
