Jeremiah 32:39 – For Us and Our Children

Today’s Reading: Jeremiah 31:27‐32:44, 1 Timothy 3:1‐16, Psalm 88:1‐18, Proverbs 25:20‐22

Context: God is promising that he will bring his people back after excile.  He has a good plan for their future.  After the verse below he will say “I will rejoice in doing them good, and I will plant them in this land in faithfulness, with all my heart and all my soul.”

Jeremiah 32:39 “I will give them one heart and one way, that they may fear me forever, for their own good and the good of their children after them.”

Observations:

  • I will give them one heart and one way
    • That they may fear me forever
      • For their own good
      • And the good of their children after them

I cannot assume that the specific promises that God gave Israel are also for me and my family.  However, we know that God’s nature does not change.  We also know that he has welcomed us in to the biggest part of this blessing through the new covenant in Christ.

Apply: I need to trust that God will give Rebecca and me one heart and one way that will motivate a healthy fear of him and be for our good and Anna’s good.

Do believe that God has a good plan for you and your children?
