Jeremiah 29:11 in the Bible is a very comforting passage. God told His people, “For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.” This passage is often quoted and rightfully so! But sometimes, the bigger context is overlooked. God said this to the Israelites while they were in Babylonian Captivity! They would be in exile for 70 years. That’s a long time! But they were to trust in God. They were to continue to move forward. They were to get comfortable in a difficult environment and move forward. How is that possible? Only by the strength of God. Where are you in your life? Wherever you are, just keep moving forward with your faith in God.
