    Some Encouraging Words from God – Jeremiah 29

    I’m really enjoying reading through the book of Jeremiah. I’m taking my sweet time as I drink my morning coffee and slowly digesting the words from this book in the Old Testament. In chapter 29, Jeremiah’s letter is sent from Jerusalem to the remnants of the elders which were carried away captives, and to the priests, the prophets and all the people whom Nebuchadnezzar had carried away captive from Jerusalem to Babylon.

    God Sees Your Mistreatment

And your father hath deceived me, and changed my wages ten times; but God suffered him not to hurt me.” – Genesis 31:6,7 kjv Then, we see that God revealed something special and personal to Jacob, “For…
