Listen to the words of God written by the prophet Jeremiah: “For I know the thoughts that I think towards you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me, and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you, and you will see Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you, says the Lord, and I will bring you back from your captivity. I will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you, says the Lord, and I will bring you back to the place from which I caused you to be carried away captive.”
The promise of God to Israel through the prophet can also be ours today. We must remember that God is good and His mercy endures forever. Too many of God’s people have found themselves captivated and weakened in our time, yet God’s mercy still calls us to His throne in our time of need. If we will pray, the power and freedom in Christ will be ours again.
It’s time to pray!
