Is Jeremiah 29:11 a promise for us?

Jeremiah 29:11 is a verse that I constantly hear from believers, pastors and teachers, but really is a verse that is wildly misused and misinterpreted. Here is the verse in context supported by the verses around it….

“For thus says the LORD, ‘When seventy years have been completed for Babylon, I will visit you and fulfill My good word to you, to bring you back to this place. 11 For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. 12 Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you,’ declares the LORD, ‘and I will restore your fortunes and will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you,’ declares the LORD, ‘and I will bring you back to the place from where I sent you into exile.’

    Lenny,

    Thank you for this post. His explanation is quite eye opening.

    I still see this scripture as a promise for me, individually, but actually received in full when I die and go to be with the Lord. As for my time on this earth, I will not be surprised at any trials sent my way. In fact, I expect them.
    I thought his teaching/viewpoint on this was enlightening.

  3. Thanks for the comment Judy, if you’re saying that God will never leave us nor forsake us I agree with you, regardless of the the trials and tribulations we are in, as for Jeremiah 29 there’s a future and a hope for Israel and like us that’s a beautiful thing!
