Friday 7 May


Read Jeremiah 31.3-14

“The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying, ‘I have loved you with an everlasting love: I have drawn you with unfailing kindness ..’” (Jer.31.3)

God’s people had stubbornly ‘blown it’ so often they’d ended up in exile. God’s word to them through the prophet Jeremiah, however, assured them they could still be hopeful for the future because of the lasting love of God pledged to them in the past.

What are the implications spelled out here of the ‘everlasting’ nature of the LORD’s love for, and His ‘unfailing kindness’ His people?

In what ways have you been aware of the LORD rebuilding your life (v.4)?

Prayer: Have mercy, LORD, upon those of us who have foolishly and perversely gone our own way and feel we have forfeited our future: remind us of Your unfailing love.
