“This is what the Lord says: “When seventy years are completed for Babylon, I will come to you and fulfill my gracious promise to bring you back to this place. 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. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you,” declares the Lord, and will bring you back from captivity.

How does this promise given to the Israelites in Babylon apply to us?

    His plans and our future in this verse seem consistent will all of Scripture. Great verse to hold on to.
    I think of the gospel song,
    “This world is not my home,
    I’m just a passin’ through,
    My treasures are laid up
    Somewhere beyond the blue.”
    Our real hope and future is glorious, isn’t it!
