Read Jeremiah 30:1 through 33:26

Published: Aug 2, 2017

The word of the Lord came to Jeremiah: “Have you not noticed that these people are saying, ‘The Lord has rejected the two kingdoms he chose’? So they despise my people and no longer regard them as a nation” (Jeremiah 33:23–24).

When the nations of the world looked at the trials and tribulations of the children of God, they came to the conclusion that God was finished with Israel and Judah. They did not see the remnant of God’s people as a nation of any importance.

But the world forgets that, in the beginning, the nation was promised to Abraham before he had a child. The son, through whom the promise was fulfilled, was born despite the advanced age of Abraham and his wife Sarah. God takes the smallest of hopes and builds greatness for His own glory.

It does not matter what the world thinks of God’s people. Even today, God calls out from the nations a people for himself. The church has been designated to share God’s love with the world. When the world sees the church as of little importance, hold fast to God’s faithfulness.

Challenge for Today: Trust in God and listen to His promises.
