      Jer 29:11 - For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. I love this verse. It must have been very encouraging to those Jews who were in Exile to Babylon. See, they were exiled there by God for their disobedience to the Lord God, so I imagine this was a relief to hear God had not forsaken them. As it says in the previous verse, Jer 29:10 “This is what the LORD says: “When seventy years are completed for Babylon, I will come to you and fulfill my good promise to bring you back to this place.” This is encouraging to us, today, in that we see God never gives up and never goes back on his promises regardless of who we are and what we do. For those he loves and those who love Him are a grand future because his promises are always fulfilled. For us, today, He promises Heaven for those who believe that Jesus was the ultimate sacrifice for our sins which He had been planning since the beginning of time. With that said, I feel it is unhealthy for us to take a word spoken through the prophet Jeremiah, around 5th century BCE, that was meant specifically for the Jews in exile and apply it literally because it makes us feel good. It was given so that the Jews in exile may understand and prepare for the return to the promise land while maintaining the hope that God had not forsaken them; that God was still going to fulfill His promises regardless of the their disobedience to their forefathers covenant vows with God. This verse, as God’s plan for us, was not meant for us to take literally and apply it but to be read as a record of God’s patience with those who disobey his commandments. Regardless, God has since set up an even better plan for us, today. See, they didn’t have Jesus as a direct way to the Lord like we do now. We have been given the ultimate gift of Salvation through the death of God’s only Son, Jesus. This verse was God’s plan for the Jews in exile; but God’s plan for us today is to follow Jesus, regardless of circumstances, with joy and peace. This joy should continue until we meet him in heaven. And while we wait, we are to proclaim his name to all that will hear. So, I guess we could apply Jer 29:11 today as: God’s plan for us is to have HOPE in our FUTURE as we wait for the PROSPERIOUS end in Heaven while being joyful regardless of our circumstances here on earth knowing the end is a good one.
